Welcome from the Nursing Department Chair

ulmer_resize Dr. Deborah Ulmer

It is such a pleasure to welcome you to the Longwood University Nursing Program web site to learn about our Baccalaureate Nursing Program. Our nursing program is one of the newer programs in Virginia and is different than many programs in that nursing students enter directly into the Nursing Program as freshman at Longwood. Being accepted as nursing students in the Freshman year is unique….most schools accept nursing students as pre-nursing students, meaning that there is a separate application process to the nursing program. At Longwood, there is no wait or uncertainty after you arrive.
