Project BEYOND-2

Project BEYOND-2 seeks to encourage students from underrepresented backgrounds to pursue a rewarding career in professional nursing. As a nursing student, you will join a community of support at the Marquette University College of Nursing. Faculty, advisers and community leaders will assist you in achieving academic success.

Pre-admission intensive session for new freshmen

Project BEYOND-2 offers an intensive, on-campus, four-day summer session to begin socialization and readiness for college. The session focuses on note-taking, study skills, test-taking strategies, stress and time management, professional writing, using university resources, applying for scholarships and accessing faculty assistance.

Academic and personal support

Sessions include alternating structured and non-structured sessions and presentations from faculty, university leaders, support services and other community leaders. Non-structured sessions allow students to ask questions, request discussion topics and build community.

Tutoring

  • Free tutoring from the Office of Student Educational Services.
  • BEYOND-2 will help coordinate group tutoring.

Nurse mentor program

Students may be paired with a nurse mentor for a student's B.S.N. education. Mentors are Marquette faculty and professional nurses from the community and local health care systems.

Scholarship and stipend assistance

Assistance for students from diverse backgrounds who are eligible to apply may be provided additional help.
