What You’ll Learn
You’ll be prepared to care for complex patients, families, and communities within inter-disciplinary teams. Students engage in both classroom and clinical experiences in the Rochester area and even have the opportunity to learn in places like Peru, Costa Rica and Haiti.
We prepare professional nurses who can meet the health care needs of a culturally diverse society. We do this by combining a rigorous academic curriculum with stimulating clinical experiences, all of which are guided by dedicated faculty members.Curriculum & Learning Outcomes

The program accepts qualified students from:
- Students enrolled at Brockport
- Transfer students from other colleges and universities (must have at least 15 grade-bearing credits (not S/U) at Brockport and a transfer GPA of at least 3.0)
Our program has prerequisites for admission for transfer students. Learn more about our admission requirements and progression, applicant suitability guidelines and our typical course progression.

“The nursing faculty and clinical experiences gave me above and beyond what I need to succeed in this profession. I was able to participate in research opportunities and was exposed to opportunities that I didn’t even realize existed.” Jessica Jackson ’10
