ADN Program Details
The Nursing Program at Trocaire College offers a curriculum leading to an Associate in Applied Science Degree. The Program focus is on theory and clinical experiences to prepare the graduate for a beginning level of professional practice within a diverse and changing health care system.
The curriculum emphasizes knowledge and skills needed to promote, maintain or restore health. It prepares the graduate to provide and manage care in structured settings for clients across the life span.
The Nursing program is offered either in the day or in the evening. The evening curriculum is identical in content to the day curriculum. However, the evening curriculum is distributed over a 6 semester (3 year) time period including two summer sessions. In addition to the regularly scheduled evening experiences, selected clinical laboratory experiences for both day and evening programs are scheduled during daytime/weekend hours. These clinical days provide a comprehensive experience of nursing care activities which occur during the day.
BSN Program Details
The B.S. with a major in Nursing program is designed for adult learners wanting to pursue the professional level credentials in Nursing. This hybrid, online degree completion program provides current registered nurses, who have a diploma or associate degree in nursing, the opportunity to realize their educational and career aspirations.
All courses are offered online, with a maximum of three traditional classes on campus, allowing for flexible accommodation to work schedules and other commitments. The courses must be completed within each semester, but students can access courses at the time and place most convenient to them. Clinical requirements include 145 hours of preceptorships for the entire program – you may be able to complete clinical assignments at the facility where you work. (However, such experiences may only take place on units which are physically and/or functionally distinct from your current work site.)
As a registered nurse you can advance your nursing career by earning a baccalaureate degree in as few as 16 consecutive months. The goal of the Nursing B.S. program is to provide registered nurses with learning opportunities to acquire knowledge and skills to practice nursing at the professional level. Trocaire’s program focuses on comprehensive nursing care in various clinical practice settings and builds on information already acquired in lower division nursing courses and prior professional experiences.
LPN Program Details
The Practical Nursing Program will prepare the graduate for a position as a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN). Licensed practical nurses function as an integral and important part of the health team, providing patient care under the supervision of registered nurses.
The licensed practical nurse performs tasks and responsibilities within the framework of case finding, health teaching, and health counseling and provides supportive and restorative care under the direction of a registered professional nurse or licensed physician.
