Focused Interest Communities

Housing Header

Nursing FIC

This community houses intended pre-majors of the School of Nursing. Students in the Nursing FIC take two classes together: Nursing Chemistry and Biology. In addition to living together, students who apply for the Nursing FIC are enrolled in two concurrent courses. All students will be enrolled in Biology 140. Students will also be enrolled in Chemistry 120A. 


Students living in this community will have the opportunity to work directly with faculty members as they study for pre-requisites to the nursing program.


Students in the Nursing FIC also participate in community study groups, take a tour of the Nursing School Simulation Lab and make connections with health agencies in the local area.


The Nursing FIC is located in Woodland Hall.

“The nursing FIC has helped me foster close ties with my wing mates through cooperative studying and learning to help me understand my classes.” — Chad Bates
