Supplemental Instruction

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is peer-facilitated academic support provided outside of class on a weekly basis. SI is provided as a complement to our historically difficult courses across our academic curriculum.

The SI leader attends the actual class and conducts SI sessions to supplement the learning that occurred during class time. Students are encouraged to take advantage of this free group study time.

For additional information on SI, please contact Lisa Flairty at lisa.flairty@methodistcollege.edu. When SI is offered in a course, students receive specific information regarding schedules of availability within the first week of the course.

Writing Across the Curriculum

Nebraska Methodist College can help you become a more effective writer. NMC's "Writing Across the Curriculum" website, accessible via the "WAC" tab in My Methodist, includes links to videos, handouts, tips and other guidelines to help you successfully complete writing assignments, public speeches and portfolio reflections.

Disability Services and Accommodations

Nebraska Methodist College is committed to full compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 by providing equal opportunity and reasonable accommodations to qualifying students with disabilities. Students, faculty, staff, and administration all play a role in ensuring that reasonable and appropriate accommodations are provided in a timely and effective manner.

It is NMC's policy that no qualified student who demonstrates a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities be excluded from participation in, be denied benefit of, or be subject to discrimination in any program or activity offered by NMC. NMC endeavors to provide qualified students with disabilities equal access, not advantage, to the College's educational opportunities, facilities, programs and activities in the most integrated setting appropriate to the needs of the individual.

It is the student's responsibility to request accommodations. It is only through the student's voluntary disclosure of disability and request for accommodation that NMC can support student's disability needs. Students may initiate the process by completing the Request for Accommodations Form below and meeting with the Coordinator of Academic Success. Additional forms related to requesting documentation from a qualified professional are also available below. Students should be aware of the differences between services in high school and those available in college. Information outlining the differences between services in high school and college is available in the "Transitions" document below.

For more information about how to receive accommodations at NMC, please contact Lisa Flairty, Coordinator for Academic Success, at lisa.flairty@methodistcollege.edu or 402-354-7216.

Students seeking an accommodation(s) are also encouraged to review our Services and Accommodations for Students with Disabilities Policy, which can be accessed in the Student Catalog or in the documents below.

Advising

Advising

Every student at Nebraska Methodist College is assigned an adviser who will guide you throughout your healthcare career journey. 

Working with your advisor will help you gain an understanding of your courses and other services that will support your success and development.

Mentoring

Mentoring

The Levine Scholar Program is an interdisciplinary honors program that engages a small number of high-achieving undergraduate students to help them deliver high-quality healthcare using good clinical judgment as they enter into practice.

This seminar course is a "bridge to practice" that uses mentoring to build the student's skill set in the areas of communication, leadership, collaboration and professional demeanor.

Based on the Educated Citizen model, you’ll explore the outcome of Critical Thinking. You will also analyze, evaluate and create possible solutions for current healthcare issues. 

In the first cohort, during the 2017 fall semester, Sonography and Nursing students interested in obstetrical nursing will meet once a month with Dr. Levine. At the conclusion of the semester, they will be able to:

  • Demonstrate professional communication skills for entry into professional practice.
  • Integrate collaborative skills as a valued healthcare provider. 
  • Examine a culture of safety to ensure competent care measures for patients in clinical settings.
  • Display holistic and compassionate care in a manner that facilitates well-being.
  • Integrate culturally competent professional care while incorporating caring, human dignity, integrity and social justice.
  • Synthesize the Educated Citizen critical thinking concept as a comprehensive exploration of issues, ideas, artifacts and events.
