Springfield launches Student Success Program
Thanks to an anonymous, $1.5 million gift to the Springfield Campus, a Student Success Program formally launched in fall 2020, offering on-site and online tutoring by faculty, graduate assistants, and top-performing fellow students. Recent alumni are recruited to mentor current students.
Additionally, the campus expanded its “boot camp” for incoming students from two days to three. The experience prepares students for the unique rigor and pace of nursing school and gives them concrete strategies to overcome the challenges. It also introduces them to the sophisticated facilities in which they’ll learn, including a tour of Memorial Medical Center.
Not least of all, the Student Success Program will also underwrite the cost of NCLEX review materials and courses for graduating seniors.
