• New Student Orientation | UTMB School of Nursing

New Student Orientation

Registration beginning Thursday, May 9th at 7:30 AM in School of Nursing Lobby.

Orientation is mandatory for all incoming nursing students in all programs. We will be covering information specific to each program.

Orientation Information:

Please review the information carefully, especially the student check list to ensure you have completed all the necessary steps ahead of your arrival on campus. It is your responsibility to review all materials and follow through on any requirements before your first day of orientation.

We look forward to meeting you on the first day of your journey to becoming a nursing professional and welcoming you to UTMB!
