Nursing Intent Advising Resources

This website has been created for Nursing Intent students to help them better understand their program requirements and answer common questions we receive about Nursing Intent and applying to the Nursing program. We think the videos are very helpful, and hope you do, too! Check back regularly for updates as we get feedback from students, and feel free to email your advisor with suggestions for more content.

New Fall 2021 Freshman are required to meet with their assigned academic advisor in order to register for Winter 2022 Semester. Students should plan on meeting with their assigned academic advisor in October to develop their academic plan prior to the start of registration in November. There is typically a two week wait for an advising appointment, so be sure to sign up early. See the information below for more information and advisor information.

When do I register for Winter 2022 courses?

Your Registration date and time is based on your total earned hours (Fall 2021 hours do not count towards your totals). To verify your total earned hours, see your online Academic Transcript my.emich account > student services > student records > academic transcript, then scroll down and find the "cumulative earned hours". Once you find this number, you can view the Registration Calendar.

    Tip: Once you are on your audit screen ALWAYS click "request new audit" in the top right corner. The default is to show you the last audit ran (date is in the top left corner), which might be months or years old! Keep in mind that if you are an "Intent" major (nursing intent, for example), your audit will show as "No Degree". That is okay, as you can't graduate as an "intent" major, and will still show you the correct gen ed requirements! If you get a red access denied error, log out and log back in. Occasionally, the audit system will give students an "access denied" error. This is usually because they are logged into multiple gmail accounts. Log out of all gmail accounts, and try again logged in only to your my.emich account.

  • Academic Plans

    Expand dropdown

    While it is possible to graduate from the Nursing program in 4 years, most students take 4.5 years. We recognize that each student's academic plan will be different based on a variety of factors, such as: their high school experience, comfort with math and science courses, duel or transfer credit, AP scores, SAT/ACT scores, work commitments, family commitments, etc.

    Below is a common example (one of many) of a student's academic plan. CHHS Advisors assist students during their first semester at EMU with creating their personalized plan.

    • First Year Fall: WRTG 121, MATH 110, NURS 110, SOC 105 or ANTH 135, Gen Ed
    • First Year Winter: CHEM 117 & 118, COMM 124, PSY 101 & 103, Gen Ed
    • Second Year Fall: CHEM 120, NURS 261 or EDPS 225, Gen Ed, Gen Ed
    • Second Year Winter: EXSC 201 & 202, Gen Ed, Gen Ed, Gen Ed

    *Take the TEAS exam during your second year, and apply for Nursing by May 15 after second year. If a student has remaining Gen Eds, they can be completed while in Nursing School.

    • Third Year: Nursing Level 2 + DTC 203 & BIOL 328
    • Fourth Year: Nursing Level 3
    • Fifth Year, Fall: Nursing Level 4

  • ATI TEAS

    Expand dropdown

    Students must complete the ATI TEAS exam prior to filling out the Nursing application in May.

    You can take the test anytime, and we highly recommend students do this early and not wait until the last minute! 

    Students can take the ATI TEAS exam twice in a 365 day period. Students cannot use a "super score" and combine two exams. They must use their best overall exam on the Nursing application.

    Students are not required to take the exam at EMU- it can be taken at any University, at an approved ATI testing location, or remotely via ATI (subject to availability). Students will simply add a one page pdf overview of their scores, which is provided by ATI when you finish the test, to their application.

    The CHHS Advising Center does not schedule the ATI TEAS Test for Nursing Intent students and does not have access to the testing schedule. Scheduling and study guides can be found at ATI Testing.

    Problems with scheduling the test at EMU can be directed to the EMU Testing & Certification Center.

  • Applying to Nursing

    Expand dropdown

    EMU Admits 80 students into the traditional nursing program, 32 students into the second bachelor accelerated nursing program, and approximately 32 students (depending on availability) into the HFC/WCC & EMU Collaborative programs each year. As was previously discussed in the Application and Points Overview Video, students are admitted based on their total application score of out 485 points.

    The Nursing application is typically available by late March of each year and must completed by 5pm on May 15th. It is NOT first-come, first-served.

  • Financial Aid & Tuition
