Peer Advising

Program Overview

Nursing Cohort Program

To better assist NYU Meyers first-year, traditional students with their educational journeys ahead, the Nursing Cohort Program (NCP) has a two-fold mission:

  1. To foster a supportive community of peers, mentors, and academic advisors for first-year students of NYU Meyers.
  2. To empower NYU Meyers students to utilize all of the resources at their disposal for academic, social, and personal enrichment and success.

Two key components of the NCP are the Nursing Cohort Seminar and Nursing Cohort Leaders.

The Nursing Cohort Seminar is a mandatory class that meets biweekly (every other week) in the fall for all incoming, first-year students. Each seminar is led by an academic advisor assigned to all of the students in her seminar, thus ensuring that students will be spending time with their advisor every other week throughout their first term. The seminar provides detailed information pertaining to NYU and NYU Meyers resources, academic support programs, student organizations, and activities within NYU Meyers, NYU, and NYC. The seminar is co-facilitated by a Nursing Cohort Leader in order to ensure that the student perspective is front and center during all seminar sessions. The seminar is a zero-credit course that is graded on a pass/fail basis. All seminars will take place on the Washington Square campus and will meet for approximately one hour. All students will automatically be enrolled in their nursing cohort seminar and will be able to see the meeting location and time of their seminar via their student center schedule in Albert.

Nursing Cohort Leaders (NCLs) are NYU Meyers traditional sophomores with leadership experience and a passion for peer advisement. Utilizing their “insider” knowledge and student perspective of NYU and NYU Meyers, these student leaders will serve as peer advisors to first-year nursing students in a number of ways! In conjunction with an academic advisor, NCLs will help facilitate all nursing cohort seminars in order to get to know their cohort and learn more about their students’ needs and burning questions. During the seminar “off weeks,” NCLs will lead their students on mandatory, community-building outings in both NYU and NYC. These outings will be fun, inspiring, and provide an excellent opportunity for students to get to know one another, NYU, and NYC. During the spring term, first-year students will remain in contact with their cohort and elect cohort leaders to help facilitate this process. NCLs will also be on hand to ensure students’ continual engagement with the NCP.

The benefits of the Cohort program:

  • Enhances the first year college experience
  • Helps with the adjustment from high school to college
  • Provides a supportive, personal and cohesive NYU Meyers community within a large institution
  • Enables small class discussions
