On behalf of the faculty and staff, welcome to the School of Nursing at Old Dominion University. It's an exciting time to enroll in nursing at Old Dominion! As our health care delivery system is trying to meet societal needs, the profession is growing and changing. The knowledge that you will obtain - about people, society, health and nursing - will equip you to meet the challenges and changes of the future.
The School of Nursing Handbook, revised yearly and accessible from the School of Nursing web page, is designed to orient you to the policies and procedures affecting your nursing education and your successful progression in the major. I am certain that you will find this information an invaluable resource and I encourage you to review it thoroughly.
As chair, my office is open to you. I hope you will enjoy your educational experiences at Old Dominion University.
