Attention:

We will be accepting applications for the Fall of 2014 cohorts February 1-July 1.

Please note that we do offer Statistics for Nurses for any accepted applicants who have yet to take statistics. You must complete all prerequisites including Nutrition or the Nutrition challenge exam before enrolling in Seminar I, Seminar II or Community Based Epidemiology. We do offer a nutrition challenge exam which will be available in the spring and fall semesters for enrolled students only. Further information will be available upon registration.

All nurses who begin the RN-BSN program in the fall of 2014 will need to plan on attending PRO 306 (Bridge Course) which meets Aug. 19 (9 am-5 pm) and Aug. 26 (9 am-3 pm) at either the Brockport or Metrocenter Campuses.  This is an overview course which ensures all students have the essential skills to succeed in the program.  Please ensure you have allocated adequate time to ensure you are able to complete the computer, math and written assignments for this short and labor intensive two week class. 

All nurses who are registered to take Community Based Epidemiology in the spring of 2014 will need to have March 28, April 11, and May 9  available for the on site Epidemiology clinical course(NUR 472).
