This hybrid-virtual model allows learners to take didactic courses online and complete experiential learning requirements at local health care partner facilities such as hospitals and long-term care facilities, as well as the local experiential learning hub.
The College offers two programs with this model, the ADN Program, which can be completed in as few as 20 months, and the 32-month BDN Program.
“Nightingale College is thrilled to be educating nurses in these communities,” said Blake Halladay, Senior Manager of Partnerships. “We look forward to what these networking events will bring, and what it will mean for the future of nursing education and health care in rural and underserved areas.”
