The Nursing Program has required educational components in all of the following areas: classroom, clinical facilities and the nursing skills lab.

Each student enrolled in the Nursing program must meet the mathematics proficiency requirements at selected intervals during the program.

Clinical experiences for Nursing students are scheduled by the Nursing Department and may include day and/or evening and weekend timeframes.  Students in the day time option will have evening clinical hours assigned in specialty areas. Students are responsible for providing their own transportation to clinical and community facilities in Broome and surrounding counties. All clinical components run concurrently with lecture. In order to progress, students must satisfactorily complete all clinical components.

In order to progress, students must also complete assignments in the Nursing Skills Center Lab & Computer Lab. These assignments are completed both inside and outside of class time.
