No Excuses Orientation
“No Excuses” training for American Indian nursing and pre-nursing students
The No Excuses Orientation is a workshop designed to provide students an opportunity to meet colleagues, acquaint students with UND campus and the Grand Forks community, and provide information to prepare students for college.
This training provides students with information about nursing curricula, all campus support services and their locations, RAIN support services, financial aid information, study and writing skills, and introduction to personnel in key programs throughout campus. The training also helps to create initial peer support connections. Tribal elders are included as part of the training staff, leading the students in a “talking circle” and discussions of cultural and family values and issues.
