It’s Back to School Night with Rio Hondo College’s Nursing Club, Oct. 25

The Rio Hondo College Nursing Club is hosting a Back to School Night on Tuesday, Oct. 25, 2022. Students received an email announcing the event will be at the Tech Quad from 6:30 pm until 8 pm.

However, the event isn’t just for current Rio Hondo students but for anyone interested in learning about the nursing department at the College. The Back to School Night will also have more than just information about the Rio Hondo College nursing program. 

The event will feature an array of events and entertainment options, from carnival games, scavenger hunts, and pumpkin painting to a Halloween costume contest. In addition, the event will have snacks and food.

Rio Hondo College’s nursing programs are part of the Health Science and Nursing Division. But it’s an umbrella that covers 10 programs, which include nursing and others. 

Nonetheless, the College offers six different nursing-specific programs: 

Certified Nurse Assistant Acute Care CC
Home Health Aide CC
LVN to ADN (Option #1) AS
Nurse Assistant Pre-Certification Training Course CC
Psychiatric Technician to RN Associate Degree Nursing AS
Nursing (ADN) AS 

Moreover, there is a nutrition and dietetics program and two programs in vocational nursing. 

Students who enter the Rio Hondo College Health Science and Nursing department can expect to complete a certificate or degree between two and eight semesters, depending on the program. 

For those who can’t make it to Back to School Night, information sessions about the nursing programs at Rio Hondo College are also hosted on Zoom twice a month. Before the Fall 2022 semester ends, upcoming session dates include Oct. 20, Nov. 3 and 17, and Dec. 1 and 8. 

However, the deadline to apply to a handful of programs for the Spring 2023 semester has already closed. More information about deadlines for each area of study is available in the Health and Nursing section on the Rio Hondo College website.

Parking permits are usually required for Rio Hondo’s student parking lots, but there will be free parking in Student Parking Lot A on Tuesday. So, if you have a class around that time, you might have to find an alternate place to park.
