Nursing

Students under the direction and guidance of faculty develop a learning contract for each clinical nursing course. The learning contracts are designed in accord with the student’s academic and professional background and the objectives of the course. The use of the learning contract provides for student self-direction and participation in the selection of their learning experiences. Clinical hours are planned on a to-be-arranged basis.

The Department of Nursing reserves the prerogative to adjust admission and program requirements in response to changes in accreditation or credentialing/registration criteria.
