Student Support Services
Carson-Newman is a leader in adult online education and understands the needs of online students, the challenges they face, and how to help them succeed.
At Carson-Newman, you are a member of a vibrant and active academic nursing community. Carson-Newman's online students can expect the same academic excellence and student support as the on-campus nursing students.
Clinical Placement Support Services
As an online FNP student, you will benefit from our exceptional clinical placement support services. Shortly after enrollment, you will complete a placement intake form and also state if you have any referrals for clinical sites. A placement specialist will then work behind the scenes to source and secure a quality placement site and preceptor. Once the sites have been approved by the Department of Nursing, your Clinical Placement Coordinator will be in touch with you regarding placement site details prior to that clinical rotation. For more information on clinical placement support, please refer to our clinical placements page.
Dedicated Student Success Support
Online students are matched with a dedicated student success advisor who provides one-on-one guidance from registering for your first class to graduation day. Your student success advisor serves as a personal resource to help round out your learning experience and keep you on track for graduation.
Advisors encourage students to make the most of their online learning experience at Carson-Newman by educating them about campus resources, academic opportunities, and program-specific graduation requirements. From providing one-on-one tutoring to connecting you with structured study groups and academic workshops, Carson-Newman’s student success advisors identify each student’s individual needs and provide them with tailored solutions that ensure academic and professional success.
