Student Handbook 2023 - 2024

As members of Vanderbilt University School of Nursing, all students are held to the same values and expectations. The Student Handbook is designed not only to hold students accountable but to also serve as a set of guiding values for our students, faculty, staff, and administrators to ensure that all members of our community are informed about policies, procedures, rights, and privileges. We encourage all students to review the information in the Student Handbook to not only know what is expected of you as members of Vanderbilt University School of Nursing, but also to know your rights. The Student Handbook contains helpful information, guides, and directories that will make navigation of campus life easier. If, after reading through this Handbook, you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact Carolyn Schettler, Senior Administrative Officer in Academic Affairs, by email or by phone 615.343.3241.
