Student Communication Responsibilities

Student Responsibilities

It is the responsibility of all Nursing students while in the BSN program to keep open all lines of communication, so all staff and faculty in Nursing or other UW Bothell and University departments may be able to reach you at any time through a variety of communication mediums.
  Specific responsibilities are posted below.


All UW departments, including Nursing, all UW Faculty, staff and other students will use your official UW e-mail address (which is to communicate class information, registration information and much more. Therefore, we require you to set your UW Email forwarding to an email account that you will check daily.  You most likely did this at the time you applied to our program, but to check your email forwarding settings and update them at any time as needed, please go to manage your UW NetID resources and click on Email Forwarding on the side menu.

Mail Folders

Bothell Nursing students have a mail folder located inside the Nursing Program Office (UW1-211). These are accessible only when the office is open, Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.  Messages, returned papers, and other information will be placed into your mail folder. Papers and other private materials will be placed in a envelope before being placed in your mail folder, but if you do not want your papers returned to you via your folder, it is your responsibility to inform your course faculty.

Address/Phone/Name Changes

It is essential that we have your current address, email address,  and telephone number in order to communicate with you. You have an opportunity to update your address information every quarter when you register, but if you have updates to make after that, please change your address using the MyUW Web site. Your address information is confidential and will not be divulged without your permission.

It is important that your legal name appear on all your official student records.  The name on your official records (transcripts, diplomas, etc.) may not be changed until such time as the name change is legally documented.  To change your name, you must fill out a Change of Name form available at the UW Bothell Registration office (UW1-160) and submit it with appropriate documentation.

Bulletin Boards for Nursing Students

If you are interested, a nursing student bulletin board is located on the outside wall of the Nursing Program Office in UW1-211. Information about upcoming courses, job opportunities, conferences, Brown Bags, and faculty publications may be posted.

Email Lists for Nursing Students

All Nursing students are subscribed to a class email list. This email list will provide you with upcoming deadlines, quarterly registration information, special events, general announcements, graduation information, and more.  Please be sure to read these emails.
