Academic Advising Pre-Professional Programs

Pre-Nursing Advising

The Pre-Nursing Advising Program is a partnership with Nursing faculty, McMinnville campus faculty advisors, and Pre-Nursing students to share resources and information about the profession of nursing and empower students to set and achieve their goals for entry to the Nursing major.

All Linfield students receive guidance and support from an assigned faculty or professional advisor, and must meet with the advisor prior to registration every semester. Pre-Nursing students are advised by their initial Colloquium advisor/instructor until they begin the nursing major on the Portland campus. Supplemental pre-nursing advising is available by the Pre-Nursing Peer Advisor, School of Nursing Faculty, and Academic Advising staff.  

Students pursuing nursing should declare their interest (pre-major) while on the McMinnville campus. Students can pick up a Declaration of Major form in Academic Advising (Melrose 010). No advisor change is necessary.

Pre-Nursing Peer Advisor: Katherine Haley
Contact info: advising@linfield.edu
Location: Melrose 010
Office Hours: Monday (2pm-5pm), Wednesday (2pm-5pm), Friday (1pm-5pm)


Keep track of your GPA! Pre-Nursing students are required to track their GPA (GPA requirements must be met to enter the Nursing major)

We hope you all have a wonderful winter break!
