Required nursing course registration

How does registration work for required nursing courses?

All admitted and continuing students will register for courses themselves through WebAdvisor. Prior to the scheduled registration week for each semester, students will be emailed with a randomly assigned time that they can begin registering for courses. While it is reccomended that students register as close to their scheduled time as possible, students are able to make changes to their schedule up until December 1st for Spring registration and April 15th for Fall registration.

Required courses are grouped together in section blocks generally labeled as: PA, PB, PC and PD. Each course is registered at capacity and individual courses are organized in blocks to fit precisely together, so that there are no conflicts for any nursing student. The student must register for one course only in WebAdvisor -  the Integrated Experential Learning (IEL) course for their upcoming semester:

  • Semester 1: NURS 335
  • Semester 2: NURS 375
  • Semester 3: NURS 435
  • Semester 4: NURS 475

Students do not need to register for any other courses for their given section - just the one IEL course. Upon registering for the one IEL course, the remaining required courses for their semester that correspond with their section (PA, PB, PC, or PD) will automatically appear on their schedule.

For information about switching schedules, see "Switching Required Nursing Course Sections".

If a student wishes to add an LC or elective course to their schedule, please refer to the "Completing Linfield Curriculum Requirements" page.
