Peer Advising

Peer advising

Peer advisors are students in the nursing program with extensive training in advising. They have a thorough knowledge of the admission process, program requirements, registration processes and policies, and the Binghamton campus and support services. Their first-hand experiences at Binghamton University and within Decker College make them ideally suited to assist prospective and current nursing students with a range of issues.
