Classes for the RN-BSN program are scheduled to meet the needs of working nurses, however, work schedules should be flexible enough to allow attendance at evening classes that may begin as early as 3:00 pm and end as late as 9:00 pm. Classes are usually offered on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Clinical experiences may be scheduled during daytime and evening hours and/or on weekends.
