1. What is the typical schedule? Are classes available online, during the evenings, or on weekends? Are classes available on both campuses?

    Non-nursing courses (i.e., those without an NUR prefix) are available on both campuses with a variety of scheduling options and delivery formats. All Nursing Program classes are provided in a face-to-face format and are held during the daytime. Depending on the course, classes in the Generic Option are normally held two days a week from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm, although there may be individual course variations. The actual class days differ with each course. Classes for NUR 1020C Foundations of Nursing Practice (Nursing 1) and NUR 2600C Nursing of the Family (Nursing 3) are offered on the Winter Haven Campus, and classes for NUR 1254 Nursing Care of the Adult Patient (Nursing 2) and NUR 2744C Advanced Comprehensive Nursing Care (Nursing 4) are held on the Lakeland Campus. In the Program’s Transition Option, classes are held one day a week with one section from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm on one day, and another section from 12:00 pm to 6:00 pm on another day. Both of these sections are taught on the Lakeland Campus. Schedules and class locations are subject to change as necessary.

    Each course, regardless of the program option selected, requires a clinical practicum day each week. Clinical rotations may follow a day schedule (usually 6:30 am to 3:00 pm) or afternoon-evening schedule (usually 1:00 pm to 9:30 pm). The exact days and times for each individual vary depending on the course and the assigned clinical facility. A student’s clinical assignment may be on any non-class day of the week, including weekends. There can be no guarantee of a particular clinical day or shift, and no guarantee of placement at a particular facility.
