Nursing Learning Community

The Nursing Learning Community (NLC) is designed to connect freshman pre-nursing majors with their peers, their faculty and the College of Nursing.  NLC members:

  •          Live together in Wildwood Hall
  •          Get to know nursing faculty and interact with upper-division nursing majors
  •          Attend the Nursing Colloquium in Wildwood Hall
  •          Explore many aspects of the nursing profession
  •          Discover special opportunities at FSU and around Tallahassee
  •          Develop the professionalism associated with the career of nursing

Any first-year student may apply; however, only those who declare pre-nursing as their major may be selected. Selection is competitive and based on brief responses to two essay questions.


Application Deadline: April 6, 2015. 


To Apply:

  1. Submit a Fall 2015 - Spring 2016 Housing Contract and your $225 housing prepayment as soon as you are admitted to FSU for Summer or Fall. (Note: Selection of Wildwood Hall as a building preference has no impact on NLC selection.)
