Hey Nursing Students!

Allow us to introduce the Nursing Student Curriculum Committee, whose role is to help amplify your voices.

The current committee is made up of your

fellow nursing students, Alexander Si-Swires, May Bunn, Gagan Brar, and Leah Seaton, and

we’re excited to be hosting a Townhall meeting where students can share their feedback, questions, or concerns regarding AU nursing programs. The townhall meeting is available for students only, no members of faculty will be present.

The townhall meeting will be hosted via the Teams online meeting platform on April 12 from 6-7 p.m. MST.

Please email or for the Teams meeting link.

Join us and share your thoughts on how you would like to see improvements implemented within these programs. Please feel free to email Alexander Si-Swires for questions related to clinical, and Leah Seaton for questions related to the curriculum.

See you there!
