Welcome to the University of Southern Indiana’s Nursing Programs! Whether you are at the baccalaureate, masters, or doctorate level, we are pleased that you have chosen USI to further your education! Our faculty and staff are here to assist you in your educational journey to achieve your degree.
Contained in the student handbook are policies and procedures that will guide you in the programs. It is your responsibility to be knowledgeable of the policies; however, should you have any questions regarding any of these policies, please ask faculty for clarification. In addition, university policies guide the CNHP students. You will find the university policies on the USI website.
All students are expected to abide by the policies found in the College of Nursing and Health Professions Handbook. The handbook is located on the CNHP website listed under "About the College."
The nursing student handbook may be found on each Blackboard course site as well as the virtual centers. Faculty reserve the right to amend policies and procedures when appropriate. Any revisions will be communicated to you either in class or through the use of your USI e-mail.
Each student must sign the BSN Professional Behavior Agreement, Permission and Waiver Form acknowledging that he/she has read the Undergraduate Nursing Handbook and is responsible for all information contained therein.
It is my sincere hope that all of you have a successful academic year.
Dr. Connie Swenty
Assistant Dean of Nursing
