Faculty Advisement

Advising is an integral part of the student experience at Vanderbilt. Far from being a passive exercise, advising is a collaborative process in which students are expected to assume primary responsibility for their academic planning while advisers provide expertise and support with the planning effort.

Each student is assigned a faculty adviser who will assist with planning a program of study and will serve as a resource to students for academic matters, such as advice concerning any difficulty with courses, testing, or paper writing. Deliberate efforts are made to match male students with male faculty for advisement, particularly when nursing specialty and content areas match.
