DOVER, Del. (AP) — Delaware Technical Community College is introducing a new, expedited nursing program with year-round classes and more intensive studies.
The News Journal (http://delonline.us/19VPBf0 ) reports the new program expects to enroll 90 students per year. The traditional nursing degree program also will continue to be offered. A federal grand is helping to pay for the new expedited program.
Delaware Tech administrator Julie Seeley says the school is expecting a little more from students in the expedited program. The more rigorous pace and course schedule may not be for everyone. But college officials say it could be useful for people who are laid off and looking to reinvent their career tracks.
The courses will include online lectures to reinforce what students learn in the classroom.
Officials say more nurses are needed in Delaware.
