Academic Advising & Tutoring
Academic advising is available to students throughout the student’s course of study, and is confidential and impartial. Students seeking academic advising should schedule an appointment with a faculty member or Academic Support Advisor outside of regular class time.
In addition, students are provided the opportunity to participate in one-on-one, group, student-to-student, faculty-led, and/or online tutoring sessions. Students are able to participate in tutoring sessions throughout their education and are encouraged to seek assistance from faculty on a regular basis.
Students seeking counseling services should speak with the Campus Executive Director or Academic Support Advisor for appropriate referrals to counseling services and community service organizations.
The College aids alumni in finding employment by assisting with resume preparation, helping with development of interviewing skills, and identifying appropriate job leads. Through career development, including professionalism, motivation, and the maintenance of ethical standards, students and alumni are empowered with the skills necessary to foster a successful and ongoing career.
Obtaining employment is ultimately the responsibility of the alumni. Alumni are highly encouraged to pursue their own independent employment opportunities. Recent alumni who have yet to obtain employment in their field of study should contact the College about available job openings in their community.
Pursuant to accreditation requirements, the College will confirm employment of alumni by contacting both the employer and alumni. The College cannot guarantee employment or salary.
Hondros College of Nursing seeks to assist students and alumni in making informed career decisions and partner with employers to maximize recruiting results. To accomplish these goals, the College offers quarterly career events which may include Community Partner Week, career fairs, on-campus recruiting, and virtual recruiting. These events are offered exclusively to the Hondros College of Nursing students/alumni and provide a variety of networking opportunities.
Online Job Board
Career partners have the ability to post jobs directly through the Hondros College of Nursing website. These job postings appear in the Student Portal for all students. In addition, continued access to current job postings will be available for alumni via the Student Portal. Therefore, students will have ongoing access to current positions with our career partners.
The nursing skills lab and the science lab are available for student practice during open lab times. These times will be posted in the laboratory. Students may seek additional help during these times. Students may also seek additional help from the Laboratory Manager by appointment.
The College provides a completely online library collection. Students are able to research multiple databases and find up-to-date information by accessing the online resources and periodicals. The online library is available through the Student Portal.
