Hybrid Practical Nursing

About

Potential students must pass two prerequisite courses:  Dosage Calculations and Anatomy and Physiology.

The Hybrid PN class is now offered as a blended cohort. Students can choose to attend on-ground Monday and Wednesday, and attend an asynchronous virtual classroom Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. 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.

The PN student studies basic nursing skills and conditions of illness, nutrition, and treatments. The clinical experience provides supervised nursing care of medical-surgical, obstetric, pediatric, and geriatric patients.
