An Important Message Regarding Summer Semester

Sheila Mingee, MBA, MSEd

and

Dean of Nursing & Associate Professor of Nursing 

Lanette Stuckey, Ph.D., MSN, RN, CNE, CMSRN, CNEcl - May 13, 2020

With the new information that came out about the Governor's plan to reopen Illinois that includes phases and regions, the Administrative Team met to discuss how this impacts our summer semester. Lakeview College of Nursing falls under region 6, with schools being able to go back to campus in phase 4. It is with this understanding that we share with you Lakeview's plans for operations for summer 2020.

Summer Classes 

For the health and safety of our community, all in-person summer courses will be taught online through synchronous learning for the entire semester.  

Labs

After June 1, courses with lab components will be held on campus in groups less than ten and following social distancing guidelines. Faculty may also schedule their skill check-offs or hold a simulation on campus following these guidelines as well. 

Clinicals

After June 1, clinicals will be held at the clinical agencies as long as the clinical agencies will allow students. As of today, we have heard confirmation from OSF Danville and Urbana, Pavilion, and SBL. 

We thank each one of you for your patience, kindness, and cooperation during this time. 

We are all in this together!
