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 courses online through the Blackboard Learning Management System. Most nursing courses will include some synchronous classes. Although synchronous classes may be attended remotely, they do require attendance on specific dates and times. The amount of synchronous class work will depend on the content of each course and vary according to the needs of the courses. Technological needs to access the 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 relate their experiences to their work and to the broader context of their lives. It helps create a more diverse, complete education that continues to grow through life long learning.
