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 two distinct accredited degree programs in nursing:
Bachelor of Science (BS)
The Bachelor of Science in Nursing allows students to take advantage of the nursing opportunities which continue to grow in New York and in the United States. The program is designed to respond to professional demands for BS-prepared nurses. A bachelor degree program in nursing provides a foundation in liberal arts and sciences, along with a core health sciences curriculum. Nursing majors are introduced to the full array of nursing career opportunities, and can begin to focus their interests in the second year of the four-year program. This degree may be used for those who wish to progress to the graduate level of education. The Bachelor of Science in Nursing is designed for students who wish to gain the education, experience, and clinical skills needed to pursue New York State RN licensure. Graduates of the program are qualified to take the NCLEX-RN. Our BS Program is offered at our Brooklyn, NY campus. Admits once a year in September.
Registered Nurse – Bachelor of Science (RN - BS)
The RN to BS program is for licensed registered nurses who have graduated from accredited associate degree or diploma nursing programs. The nurse graduate can apply those credits towards a Bachelor of Science degree at Touro College. The RN to BS program is designed to strengthen community health and leadership abilities of nurses who already have a foundation in the profession. Students earning this degree are equipped to progress to the graduate level of education. Our RN-BS program is offered at two campuses, Brooklyn, NY and Valhalla, NY on the New York Medical College campus. Admits once a year in September.
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.
Our Westchester campus, where you have the opportunity to take the RN to BS program, is located on the historic 55-acre New York Medical College campus in a freshly renovated, 249,000 square-foot, five-floor building with 700 parking spots, located at 19 Skyline Drive in Hawthorne, NY. This track is interdisciplinary with the NYMC medical students and classes are taught by NYMC faculty.
Our Brooklyn campus is in a residential neighborhood occupying two floors of a new eight-story building. The building also houses classes from the Graduate School of Social Work and the Speech-Language Pathology program, which provides students with the opportunity for inter-professional educational activities. We have diverse teaching-learning settings including the Nursing Skills Labs which offer a realistic, supportive, and safe learning environment where students can practice clinical skills and applications. Our Brooklyn campus has strong ties to the local community with many outreach opportunities, good relationships with hospitals in the metropolitan area, and is easily accessible by trains and bus service.
The baccalaureate degree program in nursing at the Touro College School of Health Sciences is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (http://www.ccneaccreditation.org)
Officially recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education as a national accreditation agency, the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) is an autonomous accrediting agency, contributing to the improvement of the public's health. CCNE ensures the quality and integrity of baccalaureate, graduate, and residency programs in nursing.
