Nursing Education Xchange

The University of Kansas School of Nursing is a member of NEXus (The Nursing Education Xchange). NEXus is a collaboration among participating doctoral programs in nursing that allows doctoral students enrolled at member colleges and universities to take courses that may not be offered at his/her home institution for a common price.

Financial Considerations

Beginning Fall 2017 the NEXus Commmon Price per course will be $825.00 per semester, and $550 per quarter credit hour. This fee is intended to cover all associated university fees such as technology, library or application fees. As with all courses, students are responsible for the cost of your books and educational materials.

NEXus courses may qualify for financial aid. If you are receiving aid and plan on taking a NEXus course, please contact financial aid to complete and route a KU School of Nursing consortium agreement.

Registration Deadlines
The student is responsible for meeting the registration and payment deadlines of the institution that is offering the course. In most cases, this will not coincide with the KU School of Nursing calendar, so advanced planning financially and academically is critical. Visit the NEXus website for a complete list of registration deadlines.

Academic Considerations

  • Decisions about selecting a NEXus course must be made in consultation with your academic advisor/committee chair.
  • Students enrolled in a NEXus course must meet all course requirements.
  • Students are encouraged to contact the course faculty in advance to ensure that they understand the course requirements (for example, prerequisite courses, vacation periods, on-campus requirements, technology requirements, synchronous versus asynchronous discussions).

Institution partners: If there are specific requirements for students/programs such as DNP and/or Ph.D., areas of focus, or a particular cluster in course offerings, list the type of information below.
