Clinical shifts for the Nursing program are subject to change based on clinical site availability. In order to meet curriculum requirements, some clinical shifts may be scheduled on weekends and/or nights.

*The starting semester for the Tyler AM and Jacksonville AM class alternates between the Fall and Spring due to the 18-month duration of the program. A new class cannot be admitted until the previous class has graduated. For example, the Tyler AM cohort enrolls a new class as follows: Spring 2020, Fall 2021, Spring 2023, Fall 2024 etc.
