Nursing Education Exchange (NEXus) Program

The Arizona State University (ASU) Edson College of Nursing and Health Innovation is a member of the Nursing Education Exchange (NEXus). NEXus is a collaboration between participating doctoral programs in nursing that allows doctoral students enrolled at member colleges and universities to take courses for a common price that may not be offered at a student's home institution.

The ASU NEXus faculty liaison, Pauline Komnenich, PhD, RN serves to coordinate course offerings and facilitate faculty and student selection of courses that are appropriate.

Required NEXus Enrollment Form


Financial Considerations

The current rate for a NEXus course is $865 per semester credit and is adjusted to $577 per quarter credit. This fee is intended to cover all associated university fees such as technology, library, or application fees. As with all courses, you 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 an ASU 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 ASU academic 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).
