NEXus Partnership

University of Hawaii at Manoa is a member of NEXus (The Nursing Education Xchange). NEXus is collaboration between participating doctoral programs in nursing that allows doctoral students enrolled at member colleges and universities to take courses that may not be offered at their home institution for a common tuition price. The UHM NEXus staff liaison, Aeza Hafalia, M.Ed., coordinates course offerings and facilitates faculty and student selection of courses.


Financial Considerations

The current rate for a NEXus course is $775 per semester credit and is adjusted to $517 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 complete and route a consortium agreement to the UHM NEXus Campus Staff Coordinator, Aeza Hafalia, M.Ed..


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 UH Manoa calendar. Advanced financial and academic planning is required to ensure the student can access the requested course. View a complete list of NEXus institutions registration deadlines.

Academic Considerations

  • Decisions about selecting a NEXus course must be made in consultation with your academic advisor/committee chair. Please note only courses that students may use NEXus courses only to meet elective or cognate requirements.
  • 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).

Transferring Credit Back to UH Manoa Nursing

Upon completion of the NEXus course, students are required to submit a request for a copy of their transcript to be sent to UH Manoa. For more information about transferring credit visit, http://www.winnexus.org/student-course-completion-procedures.
