Brief Description of Program:
The two-year Associate of Applied Science degree program begins in the summer semester of each year. The first semester of the program consists of classroom studies. Upon completion of this session, the clinical phase will begin with rotation through each assigned area. Due to the diversity of inpatient conditions and workload, there are clinical assignments on weekend and evening shifts as deemed necessary by program officials. Shifts will include 7 a.m.-3 p.m., 8a.m.-4p.m., 9 a.m. - 5p.m., 10a.m.-6 p.m., 2 p.m. - 10 p.m. 3p.m.-11 p.m., and a minimum weekend assignment from 7a.m. - 4 p.m. to take advantage of patient availability at these times. During the second year of training, students have the opportunity to rotate through the specialty areas to allow insight into their options after graduation.
