An integral learning tool in the Practical Nursing program is the use of either an iPad or Android tablet that is compatible with the requirements specified by each program of study.
It is the policy of the College that students are required to possess a compatible iPad or Android tablet on the first class meeting of these programs of study. The curricula for these programs include on-line learning, out-of-class assignments, documentation while at clinical sites, learning-outcomes assessment as well as 3-dimensional education applications. Students who do not possess a compatible iPad or Android tablet are at risk of failing individual courses in the program of study.
Students who do not have the availability of an iPad or Android tablet for learning purposes prior to the start of the program of study are encouraged to make an appointment with the Financial Aid Department. In many instances the cost of an iPad or Android tablet may be covered through an individual student’s financial aid program.
