Full- or Part-Time Study

Students may enroll on a full- or part-time basis. Full time students can complete the upper division nursing major in as few as three semesters. Day classes and extended day (late afternoon) classes are offered. All of the nursing courses are offered in a hybrid model that combines traditional classroom and online learning. This allows both the full time and the part-time students a variety of choices for flexible scheduling. In addition to classes, each of the upper division nursing courses contains a practice learning environment component. Practice learning experiences are planned cooperatively by faculty, student, and agency.
