    That sounds like it will be a small class to the advantage of the students and professors. More individual interaction with professors/instructors if needed. It sounds as though its going to be a decent program. I wouldnt expect anything less from UNE. I think the idea of getting students into the working world is great. It will help slow down the nursing shortage crisis which is already widespread.

    Yes, but the class will have to be completed before the program starts.
