Fully Online, Accelerated, and On Campus programs are available
With New York state passing the BSN in 10 law in 2017—requiring nurses to earn their baccalaureate degree within 10 years of initial licensure—it is now more important than ever for nurses to seek educational options that will fully prepare them for a long and successful career.
Utica College's Nursing programs provide three pathways for students to begin or advance their education in the rewarding field of Nursing. The curriculum in each program is ideally suited to provide the solid foundation needed to pursue a graduate degree in the future, and many UC graduates go on to achieve their MSN. This Why get a BS in Nursing (BSN) article describes additional reasons to take your career to the next level by achieving your BSN.
The baccalaureate degree in nursing at Utica College is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), 655 K Street, NW, Suite 750, Washington, DC 20001, 202-887-6791. Explore our Nursing programs below and contact us for more information.
