Supplemental Instruction

Supplemental Instruction (SI) sessions allow students to study in a supportive group environment. Sessions are peer-led and facilitated by current students who have mastered the course and have been trained to utilize interactive learning strategies. Regularly scheduled SI gives students the opportunities to discuss readings, develop organizational tools, compare notes, and learn to study strategically. Only available to BSN students.

Personal Tutoring

Personal tutoring is available by appointment at the School of Nursing and other locations on campus. Tutors assist students with subject knowledge and help develop academic skills and strategies. Only available to BSN students.

Peer Mentoring

The School of Nursing Peer Mentor position is a unique opportunity to welcome and support the transition of fifth (1st) semester nursing students in the UT Health San Antonio community. Peer mentors work with new students and educate them on campus resources, academic support, and co-curricular activities. Mentors play an active role during new student orientation and throughout the first semester as new students are full of questions and face new challenges for the first time. Peer Mentors are expected to support the Student Success Center in developing a sense of community and supporting the needs of new nursing students.
