ILION – The knowledge you need when nursing has to become like a recipe you no longer have to look at because you’ve been cooking the meal for 10 years.

Herkimer-Fulton-Hamilton-Otsego BOCES adult practical nursing program Coordinator Sara Nicolette shared this message with students during the recent orientation for the now 12-month, full-time class.

 “That’s what you have to do with your nursing information,” she said. “It has to become a part of who you are and how you think.”

The Herkimer BOCES full-time nursing class changed from a 10-month program to a 12-month program starting with the 2016-17 school year to align some of the classes with the part-time classes. Herkimer BOCES also offers part-time, day and part-time, evening adult nursing classes.

With the new setup, students in the full-time class take an eight-week summer course on the fundamentals of nursing. The course started in the first full week of July and runs four days per week. In the fall, the students will have two classes they take as just full-time students and two classes they take with second-year, part-time students. From January through June, they will take all of their classes with second-year, part-time students, before graduating from the program.

The 18 students in the full-time class this year had an official orientation day on July 5 in the Herkimer BOCES Remington Educational Complex in Ilion and started their classes that day.

Herkimer BOCES Director of Adult, Early Childhood and Outreach Education Mary Kline visited the students during the orientation and said it was great to see so many students in the class.

“Thank you, and good luck,” she said, to the students.

Nicolette dubbed part of the orientation as her “nursing boot camp – how to survive and thrive” in the nursing program. She told students they will be taught time management, test-taking techniques and studying and interpersonal skills in addition to nursing skills.

“Our goal is that you obtain skills to grow and succeed as a professional,” she said.

There are still opening for the part-time, day and part-time, evening classes starting this fall. If interested, call 315-867-2210 as soon as possible to get the application process started.
