Do you need help with one of your Nursing courses? Then, Student Academic Support is the resource for you. As part of the School of Nursing’s Peer Academic Coaching (PAC) program, your nursing student peers or course Teaching Assistants will work with you to address your academic performance needs.
All Peer Academic Coaches are nursing students who have demonstrated excellence in the courses for which they are coaches. Many are also registered nurses who are currently working on advanced nursing degrees.
