Student Orientation

Congratulations, and welcome to The University of New Mexico College of Nursing, where you’ll be immersed in high-level learning, practice and professional development within a dedicated community of students, faculty and administrators. We look forward to having you join us.

Prepare for a successful educational experience at The University of New Mexico College of Nursing in Albuquerque. Before you start classes, do the following:

  • Attend orientation and complete all orientation materials.
  • Understand our policies and procedures.
  • Review your program-specific student handbook and graduation requirements. Only the most current version of the student handbooks are kept on the website.  Older versions will be discarded. Students are responsible for knowing the content of the most recent version of their program’s handbook while they are in school.
  • Use your HSC email address for all College correspondence, and check it regularly throughout your time here.
