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

    The non-nursing courses are available on both campuses with a variety of schedule options including online. All nursing classes are face-to-face and during the day only.  Depending on the course, class in the Generic option will normally be two days a week from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm, although there may be individual course variations.  The actual class days will differ depending on the course.  Classes for Nursing 1 and Nursing 3 are on the Winter Haven campus and classes for Nursing 2 and Nursing 4 are on the Lakeland campus.   In the Transition option, class is one day a week with one section from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm on one day and another section from 12:00 to 6:00 pm on another day.  Both sections are taught on the Lakeland campus.  Schedules and class locations are subject to change if necessary.

    Each course in both options requires a clinical day each week.  Clinical may be day (usually 6:30 am to 3:00 pm) or afternoon/evening (usually 1:00 pm to 9:30 pm).  The exact days and times will vary depending on the course and the clinical facility.  Clinical 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 a particular facility.
