College of Nursing
Niagara University has a long history of nursing education with a proud legacy of successful and engaged alumni. Accredited by the New York State Department of Education and the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), Niagara University's College of Nursing is proud to offer two different degree programs.
Our comprehensive programs focus on preparing nurses who internalize and integrate the professional nursing paradigm of critical analysis and problem solving into their career, with an emphasis on healthcare leadership and management, communication and research utilization, community-based care and the values of respect for human dignity and ethical decision-making related to the scope of professional nursing practice.
Upon completion of the program students are prepared to lead, manage, and deliver outstanding professional comprehensive nursing care in any healthcare setting. The programs use active learning strategies and strive to be flexible and accessible for the adult learners.
Niagara University’s College of Nursing has numerous community connections and collaborations, which provide our nursing students with hands-on learning opportunities that allow them to take knowledge learned in the classroom and apply it to real world situations and experiences.
