New CHP Website - Important for Nursing

The College of Health Professions has a new website that is definitely worth checking out. If you are currently in either the bachelors program or the masters program , the website provides you with an up-to-date student handbook that you can download and print out, as well as tuition waiver information, a link to the blog (where you can now find the required health forms under Program Forms - so if you need to turn them in please download, print them out and get them in) and other valuable information.

Let us know what you think of the website, your input is important to us.

Thank you.
