All nursing students receive hands-on training one or two days each week at one of the following medical facilities. In this environment, students synthesize new knowledge, apply previous knowledge and gain experience managing the workflow in real-life, real-time situations. Practical experience is gained simultaneously with theory learned in the classroom. Close direct supervision is provided by an accompanying NHC faculty member in the clinical setting. The variety of facilities allow students to develop proficiency in acute, long term and community-based environments. Both daytime and evening sessions are available. Students may choose their site and session as space allows.
