Nursing - Weekend Hybrid Program

The weekend hybrid program is for students without previous nursing experience who want to pursue a nursing degree.

This program allows flexibility by blending in-person and online instruction. Online nursing courses will be asynchronous with an occasional synchronous meeting. The synchronous meeting will be announced at the beginning of each semester. Faculty will hold weekly virtual office hours. The office hours are not mandatory but are for the benefit of the student. In-person class/clinical will be held every Saturday during the semester. Please plan for 12 hours of class/clinical/campus lab time each week. A mandatory orientation will be held the first Saturday of each semester. No excused absences will be granted for mandatory orientations.
