Single Parent Program


The Audrey Snyder Single Parent Program was developed to support student nurses' academic and economic needs. The program includes:
  • A residential unit dedicated to the needs of single parents and their school-age children. The unit supports five families who live there until the completion of their nursing program
  • Personal performance enhancement sessions allow parents to discuss issues of self-esteem, interpersonal relations, problem-solving and conflict resolution
  • An assigned family mentor to help foster parenting skills, health and wellness, goal-setting, peer interaction, socialization, team building, decision making, growth and development for the entire family
  • An academic counselor to help the student nurse with academic and clinical matters as well as work on study skills, test-taking strategies and time management tactics.
ADMISSION

  • Interview with the Dean
