Watch now the recent NursingCAS Branding and Program Page Best Practices webinar!

Held on Wednesday, June 1 in preparation for the upcoming 2022-23 cycle launch, this webinar provides an overview of how to design NursingCAS program pages to help your nursing school’s recruitment efforts. Learn best practices to help students more easily navigate your NursingCAS page and apply to your program. Branding and Program pages are critical for recruitment efforts as students shop and compare programs within the portal. Learn how to ensure your program stands out. The webinar provides an overview of the new Preview feature available in the Prelaunch environment. This webinar was developed with insight from AACN and Liaison after reviewing 3,000 NursingCAS program pages in the previous cycle.

As a reminder, the configuration portal for the 2022-2023 NursingCAS cycle opened on Tuesday, May 24. Access to the Configuration Portal in the Prelaunch environment is required for all programs and allows you to edit program pages, features, and requirements for the upcoming cycle. Configuring and submitting your pages is required every year for your program to launch.

The 2022-2023 cycle will open on Thursday, August 11. The deadline to complete configurations and submit your programs for review is Wednesday, June 29 to ensure your programs will launch on August 11 and receive applications. While not required to launch on August 11, we encourage schools to consider this date to maximize recruitment exposure for your programs. For all programs submitted for review AFTER June 29, users must email Karen Jacobs and Joe Clark to notify them of submission and allow for a two-week turnaround/review/edit period before programs will be approved and launched. As the AACN and NursingCAS team has 3,000 program pages to review, we request your support in meeting these deadlines.

Learn more with the NursingCAS: Configuration Overview Webinars on Tues., June 7 at 2pm EST or on Mon., June 13 at 3pm EST. Each school should have at least one WebAdMIT administrator (if not all!) participate.
