Two Tracks to Earn Your Degree
The standard track is designed for the student who prefers classes in the daytime, didactic classes for this track typically meet during days and afternoons. Labs and Clinicals meet based on availability of clinical sites and can be scheduled Monday-Sunday in the day or evening. Please note, like any undergraduate major, this schedule is not consistent in its times each semester. Due to the fast pace and high-intensity nature of nursing programs, we discourage working many hours. The Standard track is a five-semester program with summers reserved for specific remaining GEC courses or to gain valuable healthcare experience by working, completing externships or doing mission work.
Nights & Weekends Track
The nights and weekends track is designed for the non-traditional student. This is not an accelerated program, but it is five semesters. Classes are usually held Monday through Friday, beginning at 6 pm and lasting until 9 or 10 pm. Labs and Clinicals are held on the weeknights and/or weekends. Please note: Former students have described this program as intensive since limited time for studying is available for those with a full-time job. Summers are reserved for specific remaining GEC courses or to gain valuable healthcare experience by working, completing externships or doing mission work.
