360 Virtual TourThe accredited associate-degree nursing program accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) [3343 Peachtree Road NE, Suite 850, Atlanta, Georgia] that prepares individuals to become Registered Nurses (RNs). The nursing major is designed to be completed in two academic years, but may be revised to meet individual needs. Licensed practical nurses or transfer students from other nursing programs are eligible for advanced placement.

Beginning fall 2013, Alfred State will be enrolling a small number of students in a pilot 1+2+1 program as part of the New York State Education Collaborative (NYSNEC) grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Students interested in the 1+2+1 option should apply to the associate degree program.

CCNE logoNursing AAS graduates from any program may enter directly into the nursing bachelor's degree program which is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) [One DuPont Circle NW, Suite 530, Washington, DC, 20036]. The bachelor's degree program can be completed full time in two years or part time as the student desires. The upper-level nursing courses are offered in a online format. The upper-level course work includes nursing, science, and liberal arts, primarily.

This is an exciting time to be in nursing. The impending shortage of practitioners and current critical shortage of educators is leading to multiple options for those interested in the profession. Jobs are available nationwide in a wide range of settings, usually with excellent salaries, and opportunities for growth. At Alfred State, students are being prepared to be designers, coordinators and managers of healthcare. Students graduate as leaders contributing to the advancement of health care and the profession itself.
