Department of Nursing
The Baccalaureate Nursing Program consists of two tracks:
- A generic program providing all general education and professional coursework to enable a student to earn a baccalaureate degree in Nursing and qualify to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN).
- A degree completion program exclusively designed for students who are Registered Nurses (RN) (graduates of diploma and associate degree nursing programs).
The Program will prepare a generalist professional nurse to deliver professional nursing care in a variety of settings, with a focus on primary level intervention (prevention of illness/disease and maintenance of health).
The purpose of the program is to:
- prepare a professional practitioner of nursing
- provide a foundation for graduate study in nursing
Johnson & Johnson’s Campaign for Nursing’s Future recently invested in the future of five students at York College, CUNY.
