Welcome to the College at Brockport's Department of Nursing. We are excited for the upcoming year and look forward to all the new faces in the Nursing department. For new and prospective students, it is important to understand how the Nursing department handles applications and acceptance into the program. While acceptance to Brockport is a huge step, it does not necessarily mean acceptance into the Nursing program. All Brockport students who intend to join are considered a "Nursing Intent" until they have applied and been accepted into the Nursing program. The program is highly competitive and has a list of pre-requisites that each student must fulfill before applying to the program.
The first two years of course work will revolve around completion of your general education requirements, concluding with your application into the program finished by January. Applicants will be notified by March of the decision on their acceptance into the program. The list of pre requisites can be found on the associated program pages.
Once accepted into our program, there are a plethora of opportunities. We offer many scholarships and awards, one specifically for Nursing Intents involved in the Army ROTC program. During your studies, you will engage in hands on training including real world experiences in order to best prepare you for your career.
