Academics

You’ll learn in the classroom, at the clinical sites, in the skills and in the simulation labs. You’ll build upon your skills and knowledge as you progress through the program. Among the many things you’ll learn in the program is how to:

  • Provide safe high quality nursing care
  • Integrate sound evidence based and clinical decision making skills
  • Utilize nursing informatics
  • Develop your leadership skills

When you complete the program you will be well prepared to enter the profession of nursing. The nursing program offers two tracks:

Bachelor of Science (BS)

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing 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.
