Academic Coaching

Vanderbilt University School of Nursing (VUSN) faculty are committed to our students' success in their chosen program of studies. In order to maximize student success, VUSN offers resources to facilitate strengthening of several academic support areas. Examples include test-taking and organization.

The goals of Academic Coaching Services are to help students:

  • Identify academic problems or difficulties
