Students seeking careers in nursing can start at Hollins.
An articulation agreement has been established with Shenandoah University in Winchester and Leesburg, Virginia for Hollins students seeking career opportunities in the field of nursing.
Articulation Agreement for Priority Admission
Hollins has an articulation agreement with Shenandoah University’s Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing program. Each year, SU will grant priority admission to up to six qualified pre-nursing students (three for the Winchester campus and three for the Leesburg campus). The Winchester campus starts during the fall semester and the Leesburg campus has both fall and spring starts available, catering to students who finish their first bachelor degree early.
