nPod: A living-learning community for pre-nursing students

What is nPOD Living-Learning Community?
The nPOD living-learning community is a group of first-year pre-nursing students who live in the same residence hall and take some of their coursework together. The nPOD, which stands for Nursing Place of Discovery, is a living-learning community designed for up to 44 academically motivated and ambitious pre-nursing students who want to live in a quieter environment focused on learning and discovering nursing. Students will learn to prioritize and manage their personal and academic life as well as build interpersonal relationships with peers and professors. The nPOD environment is a place of discovery where students can explore nursing and have fun. 

What are the benefits?

  • Develop an instant network of support from peers and nursing faculty members.
  • Have the opportunity for career planing with nursing professors.
  • Receive specialized tutoring and academic support for our toughest pre-nursing classes.
  • Explore the role of the professional nurse.

Who can live in nPOD?
First-year pre-nursing students who demonstrate an ongoing commitment to living in a community focused on academic success while exploring the profession of nursing.

Is there a cost?
There is an additional $50 fee per semester to be in nPOD. It’s worth it! This fee will cover guest lectures, review sessions for upcoming exams, social events, and snacks. The fee also includes a 50 percent discount on the required CPR class.
