The College offers a weekday program, fully integrating theoretical learning with clinical experiences within a caring environment. Our weekday program classes are typically in session from 8:00 am - 3:00 pm each day, with a 6:30 am start time on clinical days. Students may also be scheduled for evening clinical rotations at various times during the program.
This program is designed to meet the needs of the student who is unable to attend classes during the traditional weekday hours. Classes are held every Monday and Wednesday evening from 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm as well as Saturday and Sunday from 7:00 am - 4:00 pm. Students will generally attend two weekends on with one weekend off.
This program is designed for recent high-school graduates and those who may benefit from a year of general education and science courses prior to taking the nursing courses in the second year.
