RN to BS Nursing Program
SUNY Polytechnic Institute offers a curriculum leading to a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in nursing. The baccalaureate program is designed to serve licensed registered nurses from state-approved associate or diploma nursing programs who are prepared to focus on their professional and career development.
Students may attend the SUNY Poly program on a full-time or part-time basis. The nursing program delivers all courses online through the Blackboard Learning Management System.
One online course, NUR 314 Comprehensive Health Assessment includes a lab-based component. Learners engage in synchronous (virtual) class sessions with a mock patient to demonstrate their assessment skills.
Technological needs to access the online course content will minimally include a computer with webcam and microphone ability (the use of a wired headset is recommended.)
Admission to the program occurs in both the fall and spring semesters.
The curriculum includes coursework in the theoretical bases of professional nursing practice, comprehensive health assessment, nursing research and evidence based practice nursing leadership, and public health nursing science.
As with all programs at SUNY Poly, the nursing program includes a strong base in the arts and sciences. This provides students with the tools and knowledge to grow both professionally personally while advancing their nursing career. Accelerated BS/MS Programs in Family Nurse Practitioner, Nursing Education, and Transformational Leadership in Nursing are available to qualifying Nursing students.
