Hybrid and Online Experience
Saint Joseph’s College of Maine (SJC) hybrid and online learners benefit from the same resources and support as our on-campus students. Whether you’re earning your degree on a desktop from home or on your mobile device on the go, you are part of the SJC community.
An education from Saint Joseph’s College of Maine is driven by our faculty’s belief that learning best occurs in a community built on mutual respect. As a hybrid ABSN student, you’ll receive close supervision, mentoring, and individual attention from a team of passionate and experienced educators who are trained in distance learning.
Student Support Services
To ensure your success in the program, we assign a dedicated Student Success Advisor to help you navigate your academic journey from your entry into the program through to graduation. We also pair you with a dedicated Clinical Placement Coordinator to assist you with the logistics of securing a clinical site and preceptor.
In the first and third semesters of the program, you will attend clinical immersions on the beautiful Maine campus in our newly built Center for Nursing Innovation. This hands-on clinical training in high- and low-fidelity simulations gives you the opportunity to hone your skills in a no-risk environment, interact with faculty, and connect with your peers.
“I’m ready just to be able to have more scope of practice and more options. If I’m not quite happy with one type of nursing, I don’t have to be stuck… I can go and do a different specialty.”
Genevive Norton, Hybrid ABSN
“Be prepared to know that your life is going to change… it’s an intense program, but at the same time, someone’s life is in your hands. So, you have to understand, that’s why it’s intense… you have to be able to be disciplined.”
Sandra Stephen, Hybrid ABSN
“Any organization the Sisters of Mercy have, there’s a difference, they progress. So, the moment I read about Saint Joesph’s College of Maine, I quit other schools that gave me admission… this is where I belong.”
Chioma Okoye, Hybrid ABSN
