The other option for this cohort is to attend attend on-ground Monday - Friday (8:00AM - 2:30PM). The total program commitment is 30 hours per week.
The Hybrid PN program is 12 months and covers the same curriculum as the on-ground program. Students who select the Hybrid program need to have strong computer skills.
