Overview

The first year of the Nursing program is dedicated to courses in the Humanities, Sciences, Social Sciences and two foundation courses in Nursing. The clinical experience begins in the spring of the sophomore year and continues through the remainder of the program. 

By graduation students will have practiced in a variety of settings, including hospitals, community/home health agencies, schools and clinics. Well equipped, modern, simulation laboratories provide on-campus learning labs for skill acquisition and health assessment practice. Morning, evening, and weekend hours are utilized for the clinical experience. Students will take a pre-NCLEX exam in their senior year to determine readiness for NCLEX exams. Students are required to purchase student uniforms.

Students are responsible for their own transportation to and from clinical agencies. Nursing majors must have current “American Heart Association Health Care Provider”certification in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) upon entering the sophomore year and through all subsequent nursing courses. All immunizations must be up to date and tuberculosis skin test done annually.
