Enrollment & Courses

Course information provides students with links to the University’s catalogs, which list all of the nursing course offerings and a direct link to the Registrar’s office timetable. Students will also find information on how to evaluate a course that is taught by nursing faculty, as well as detailed information about independent study opportunities.

Student Evaluation of Instruction

Student evaluation of instruction is a very important part of your role as a student. It provides the opportunity to evaluate your instructors and serves as a means to evaluate teaching effectiveness.

Evaluation takes place at the end of each semester using the online evaluation tool AEFIS.  Results are placed in a faculty member’s record and reviewed by a faculty committee as one of the criteria for awarding merit and promoting faculty. Students are urged to complete the evaluation forms carefully and thoughtfully. Responses are anonymous and reviewed by instructors only after students have completed the course and grades have been submitted.

Student evaluation of instruction is an open system. If you do not wish to use AEFIS, students are free to evaluate a course and/or instructor outside of the formal evaluation process. Students who wish to do this are encouraged to talk with the course professor or to come in and discuss evaluation with the Associate Dean for Academic Programs or Dean of the School of Nursing.
