Learn the science of compassionate care.
Nursing opportunities continue to expand in New York and throughout the United States, and our graduates fill these roles, improving patient outcomes, quality of care and patient safety.
At the School of Health Sciences, we offer four distinct degree programs in nursing:
Associate of Applied Science (AAS)
The AAS program is an intense 2-year, 65-credit, full-time program that prepares associate degee-level nurses. The AAS curriculum provides a strong foundation in general education, biological sciences, and social sciences, as well as nursing science. Graduates of the program are qualified to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN).
Bachelor of Science (BS)
The BS in Nursing program is a 4-year, 128-credit bachelor’s degree program and provides a foundation in liberal arts and sciences, along with a core health sciences curriculum. This program is ideally suited for those who wish to continue on for a graduate degree in nursing. Graduates of the program are qualified to take the NCLEX-RN.
AAS/BS Dual Degree
Like the BS in Nursing program, the AAS/BS dual-degree program is a 4-year, 128-credit program. The dual-degree program is structured so that after the completion of year three, you are eligible to receive the AAS degree and take the NCLEX-RN. In year four, you’ll complete the remaining curriculum and are eligible to receive the BS degree. This degree track gives you the option to complete your bachelor's degree while working as an RN.
Registered Nurse – Bachelor of Science (RN - BS)
The RN to BS program is a 2-year, 59-credit program designed for licensed registered nurses who have graduated from accredited associate degree or diploma nursing programs. Graduates of the AAS degree program can apply their credits (up to 65) towards a bachelor of science degree at SHS. With your BS degree, you’ll be prepared to pursue a graduate degree in nursing.
Students who complete our programs are qualified to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses. Our students’ first-time pass rates are at or above the national and New York State pass rates. We prepare students not just to pass exams, but to thrive in fulfilling careers.
Our tuition is competitive so that you can focus on your education, not finances. We encourage both students and graduates to seek opportunities to further their careers in nursing in ways that will impact the health care environment in their communities.
