Welcome to NEXus, a unique collaboration of select Doctoral Nursing Programs throughout the United States. NEXus offers Colleges and Schools of Nursing the opportunity to join a cutting edge project addressing the course needs of many doctoral students seeking elective and core course instruction. The ability to obtain this education online, through a course exchange, allows nurses throughout the country to stay in their home town and continue practice in the clinical and/or classroom setting while getting the courses they need to obtain their ultimate goal.

Instiutions may join either as an Academic Collaborator or an Academic Affiliate Member Institution.

Academic Collaborator: An Academic Collaborator is defined as a School/College of Nursing that participates in the NEXus project as both a teaching institution (offering courses on the Xchange) and a home institution (enrolling students in courses through the Xchange).

Academic Affiliate: An Academic Affiliate is defined as a School/College of Nursing that participates in the NEXus project solely as a home institution and does not offer shared courses through NEXus.
