Nursing Tracks

Traditional Track

Students complete all nursing courses during fall and spring semesters. Additional, required general education coursework is also typically completed during the "traditional" academic year.

Students may choose to take additional courses or study abroad during the summer and may be required to complete general education and/or prerequisite courses in the summer to meet graduation requirements.

Our experienced faculty provides a supportive learning environment as students learn skills to become compassionate, knowledgeable, and conscientious nurses.

During the first year and a half of study, students combine general education coursework with introductory and prerequisite courses in the nursing curriculum.  Foundational and experiential coursework typically begins in the spring semester of the second year as long as students have completed prerequisite requirements.  Experiential courses increase in number during the third and fourth years.
