For two courses, Community Health Nursing (60 hours) and Advanced Clinical Experience (95 hours), there are a number of practice experience hours that must be completed in addition to the online course.
Completed near the end of the program, these courses are offered in the September, January and May terms.
Please plan in advance how you will accommodate practice experience hours in your present work schedule. Many facilities have specific business hours on Monday through Friday only. Students can request preferred days, but the sites have limited availability and may assign a specific day to a student.
The clinical coordinator assists students in practice experience placements. Placements are not guaranteed.
Students are responsible for identifying potential practice experience placements and then discussing these with the clinical coordinator well in advance (six months or more) of registering for the courses.
