All students are required to have a laptop in good working condition. Laptop requirements for all graduate nursing students can be found here:
The Hofstra Northwell School of Nursing is a Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) school; therefore, all students must bring their own laptop computer to the program. Student laptops are required for examinations and must be in good working order. A student who reports to an examination without a laptop may not be able to take the examination. Students who repeatedly (two or more times) report to an examination without a functioning laptop will be referred to the Student Advancement Committee (SAC).
Students may choose their own laptops, as long as the laptops meet the following minimum requirements:
