Nursing B.S.

Nursing student learning to read machinery

Take the next step in your nursing career.

As a skilled registered nurse, you can enhance your ability to care for others and advance professionally in leadership positions through the SUNY Morrisville Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in nursing.

The program provides RNs the opportunity to enhance their nursing practice in leadership, evidence-based practice, nursing informatics, health policy and professionalism. 

Keeping pace with the evolving role of nurses in the health care system, you will explore factors of nursing that broaden the concepts of who you are and how you practice.

Your curriculum will integrate knowledge, theory and research, with courses emphasizing public, family and community nursing, advanced health assessment, health promotion, nursing theory, ethics, organizational communications, systems theory, leadership and management.

You will also engage in a service-learning activity in select nursing courses to combine formal learning with reflection to strengthen a community.

Upon completion of the program, you’ll be prepared to serve individuals, communities and populations in diverse and rapidly changing health care environments as a leader, scholar and advocate for nursing.

As a graduate, you will be eligible to transfer to a master’s level program to specialize as a clinical nurse specialist, nurse anesthetist, nurse midwife, nurse practitioner, administrator or nurse educator. You’ll also be eligible for graduate programs in informatics and business and health care administration.

To improve the nursing profession, the "BSN in 10 Law" was formally signed by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo in December 2017. This law requires RN’s to have obtained at least a Bachelor of Science in Nursing with 10 years of their initial licensure to continue practicing. The increase health care demands coupled with the advancements in technology has enhanced the need for advanced practiced nurses.

Recent graduates from our Nursing A.A.S. program can complete our Intent to Enroll form for a seamless transition into the Nursing B.S. program.
