The office of student services is committed to supporting each student in developing and implementing an individualized plan for academic success and career development. The Office of Student Services provides guidance, support, and resources to our students.
The major goal of advising in the Nursing Program is to assist you to become a self-directed learner in your professional studies. Advisement focus is on individual’s progress in meeting outcome, general, and achievement testing criteria.
It is important that you take advantage of this valuable resource. It is your responsibility to sign up for academic advisement sessions with the dean of student support, director of nursing education, and/or course faculty as needed. Students may also be referred by faculty for academic advisement. Students are encouraged to schedule an appointment for academic advisement midterm and at the end of each course. Student may schedule advisement through the administrative assistant. Student may be referred by course faculty for advisement if mid-course grade falls below 80%.
Faculty members are available before and after class for student advisement. The dean of student support, director of nursing education, and/or program director is available Monday to Friday by appointment to meet with students.
The College offers group tutoring service. Please contact your course instructor for tutoring schedule.
Strategy for Success
The College endeavors to help students avoid academic difficulty. Historically, the most successful students attend class regularly, complete and submit assignments in a timely fashion, and seek assistance from instructors, advisors, or the Academic Resource Center at the first signs of trouble. Moreover, students who are successful academically have learned to balance extracurricular activities with academics.
Recommended Study Time
A basic rule for any degree/program is that you want to spend two times the number of hours studying per week as you are in class. Depending on the difficulty level of the course you are taking you may need to study more than the recommended study time.
Recommended hours of work
The nursing education program is rigorous. It demands time and flexibility. The amount of hours a student can work is dependent on the individual. We strongly recommended that students work no more than 32 hours a week.
Employment Assistance/Job Placement
Although the school may assist with job placement, the school does not guarantee job placement to graduates upon program completion or upon graduation. Prior to graduation students are required to participate in professional development seminar which assists students in developing managements skills, writing professional resumes, developing interviewing techniques, and polish job-seeking skills. Standard College keeps current posting of information about job opportunities.
Services for Students with Disabilities
In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) the Nursing Program at Standard Healthcare Services, Inc. makes every effort to provide reasonable accommodations for all individuals with a disability.
