Nursing Programs

The nursing programs at SUNY Plattsburgh prepare students for excellence in nursing practice. All of the undergraduate programs lead to a Bachelor of Science with a major in nursing. Students work with dedicated faculty and industry leaders to provide health care to their communities in the state and globally. Our programs provide students with outstanding resources and experiences including a state-of-the-art simulation center with high-fidelity mannequins, integrated electronic medical record (EMR), and online access to classroom resources. All programs include progressive clinical experiences and exclusive opportunities to partner with agencies locally and throughout New York state. Program policies can be found in the college catalog and in the nursing student handbook.

Students enter the major either as an unlicensed freshman (Nursing Major and Dual Degree Program) or as a registered nurse (RN-BS Program). The department is the home of Gamma Delta Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing. Our active Student Nurses Association supports student involvement and success. In addition, students are eligible to join the National Student Nurses Association (NSNA) which offers programs focused on student transition into the profession.

The nursing programs are registered by the New York State Education Department (80 Washington Avenue, Albany, N.Y., 12234, 518-474-3852) and fully accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE, One Dupont Circle, NW Suite 530, Washington, DC 20036, 202-463-6930). The program holds membership in the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) and the New York State Council of Deans of Baccalaureate and Higher Education Nursing Programs.
