You are invited to attend an online NursingCAS Application Workshop via WebEx on Thursdays, December 18th, January 15th, and 29th, and February 12th from 3-4 p.m.  Nursing advisors will discuss the minimum eligibility requirements to apply to the BSN program including the Texas core curriculum and nursing prerequisites as well as discuss the NursingCAS application process.
Note that you DO NOT need to come to campus for this application workshop, it will be held completely online.  WebEx operates much like a group-Skype chat so you will need access to a computer with microphone, speaker, and internet, or you can call in to the conversation from your cell or home phone while following along online.  If this is your first time using WebEx, please see step by step instructions here.
