School of Nursing: Coronavirus Update

In coordination with leadership of the University of Kansas Medical Center and The University of Kansas Health System, the KU School of Nursing has been monitoring the spread of COVID-19, the novel coronavirus.

Classes and Academics

(updated March 16 at 5:30 p.m.)

Our top priority is the health and well-being of our students, faculty, staff and community. The school has implemented the following changes for the coming weeks.

  • Our traditional BSN students will not be on campus for the next 2 weeks. We will be moving instruction to an online environment.
  • Our graduate programs are already online. 
  • All Kansas City and Salina BSN students will not report to clinical/capstone assignments through March 29.


(updated March 16 at 5:30 p.m.)

Any of our faculty or students who traveled internationally over spring break are asked to self-quarantine for two weeks. Work-related travel is restricted and personal international travel or travel to any "hot spots" in the U.S. is highly discouraged. The School of Nursing asks that BSN students not travel outside of Kansas or Missouri between now and March 29.

Ongoing Updates

The School of Nursing will continue to provide updates as we receive information on this evolving situation.
