Four-Year B.S. Program

Niagara's traditional four-year nursing degree program prepares students for a career in professional nursing through an eight-semester plan of study. Nursing is a practice-oriented major, so clinical courses at healthcare agencies will be an integral part of the program. The bachelor of science is the preferred educational degree for nursing, providing nurses with a wide range of opportunities in the field.

Admission Requirements

  • Overall average of 80 percent or higher in high school

Our program is approved by New York State Education Department, which is necessary in order to take the NYS RN licensing examination (NCLEX) upon graduation.

The nursing courses are spread across the traditional four-year, eight-semester plan of study. Nursing is a practice-oriented major, so clinical courses at healthcare agencies will be part of the program.
