Why choose a diploma program over other types of nursing programs?
Diploma programs differ from other types of nursing education because
students receive three full years of nursing education and clinical
practice. During those three years, the students practice their
nursing skills in a controlled environment with the support of faculty. Students
who attend a community college program receive the information in
2 to 2 1/2 years. Baccalaureate program nursing students
go to school for four to five years, but only two of those years
are spent on the clinical area as a nursing student. Students
who graduate from Graham are ready to take on the responsibilities
of an RN right out of school. The transition from a nursing
student to a new graduate can be a difficult one and the Graham graduates
are ready for the challenge.
