In order for students to gain a variety of clinical experiences, rotations other than traditional daytime, weekday hours may be assigned. The rotations may include nights, weekends, and distant clinical sites.
Some required courses are available only during the evenings, on weekends, or online.
Due to contractual obligations of Armstrong to some clinical sites, students may be required to fulfill clinical obligations on days that are not normally scheduled class days for the university including breaks between semesters.
The program has no formal process for entry-level students to take professional courses on a part-time basis. The average time commitment for classes, labs and clinical education is approximately 35-40 hours a week. Students are discouraged from working more than 20 hours per week while in the program due to the time commitments of the program.
Any student who leaves the program for any reason, including suspension without prejudice and leave of absence, will be readmitted only on a space-available basis.
Pregnancy will not prevent the student from successfully completing the program. However, an extended maternity/paternity leave may result in the delay of the student's graduation.
