Spring: Jun. 1st - Oct. 1st
of even years
The Nursing Program offers evening nursing courses for those students that work during the day. Students are admitted in January of odd years. All admission requirements apply to the students in the Evening Track, with a recommendation of students having completed all core requirements.
All classes are held in the evening with class start times between 5:00 PM and 6:00 PM and end times between 9:00 PM and 10:00 PM. Most clinical experiences are held in the evenings or weekends; however, some facilities require that students perform their clinical experiences during a weekday time. The faculty work hard to keep this to a minimum.
Meets: 2 evenings per week
All students in the Darton State College nursing program must have health insurance. Students who do not have health insurance must purchase a USG student health insurance policy (SHIP). Fees for the USG SHIP will be added to student tuition each semester. Students who are already covered by an insurance policy (i.e., through parent plans, family plans, or employer-sponsored plans) can easily opt out of the plan by applying for a waiver though a secure online process. Once the information has been verified and approved, a waiver will be processed and posted to the student’s Darton State College student account. The waiver is only available for a specific time frame; therefore, students must apply in a timely fashion or they will be billed for the USG SHIP. Waivers are valid for 12 months; students must reapply each year to avoid being charged for the USG SHIP. Students who fail to submit credible health insurance and opt out online will automatically be enrolled in and billed for the system-wide student health insurance plan. This charge will post to the Darton State College student account. Professional liability insurance is also required and is included in student fees.
