Due to a change in current parking needs for the Academy for Nursing and Health Occupations in the evening hours, the shuttle service will end at 6:00pm Monday-Thursday. This change will take effect on Monday, February 2, 2015 and will remain in effect until further notice. Therefore a car parked in the ANHO alternate lot will need to be relocated to the College parking lot prior to 6pm.

At this time the Academy for Nursing and Health Occupations’ Faculty, Staff, and Students have the opportunity to park in the white parking spaces located around the next door building (5114 Building) on the campus parking lot ONLY after 5:00 pm.  Please be mindful that this is an opportunity that we have been afforded and must be perceived as a privilege. Because of this opportunity ANHO expects that all Faculty, Staff, and Students will embody the characteristics of the Professionals that you are; therefore, there will be zero tolerance for unruly behavior. Such behavior includes, but is not limited to throwing any and all trash on the ground anywhere on the campus parking lot, loud boisterous behavior and demeanor, and disrespect for others.

Please also be aware that the Shuttle hours are subject to change as deemed necessary.

An audit of Friday attendance over the last year has shown that students have not been using the Friday resources through the entirety of the evening hours (9am-7pm). Because of this audit, ANHO has decided to change the Friday hours. This change is effective January 30th, 2015 and the Friday Learning hours will now be scheduled from 9 am-5pm. ANHO will close every Friday at 5pm.

January 2014 Come visit the Library!  Now open 1pm to 6pm, Monday through Thursday.

October 2013 ANHO would like to welcome Dr. Gary Reardon, DNP, PhD, RN, CNOR, as the new Academic Dean.

October 2013 Dr. Mark Adduci is heading up the Friday Learning Opportunity Lab for all students. Keep a close eye out for the Friday schedule of classes which will be posted soon in the Vending Room.
