The nursing program is designed for full- or part-time study and may be completed in a minimum of two academic years of full-time study. The four-semester sequence of nursing courses, which begins each fall semester, must be completed sequentially. Students who desire part-time study may complete the general degree requirements before seeking admission to the program.
In addition to application to the college, students must apply for acceptance into the nursing program through the admissions office. The application to the nursing program is located at sunyjcc.edu/nursing. Enrollment into the nursing program is highly competitive. Therefore, application by February 1 is of primary importance.
Applications will continue to be reviewed after February 1 on a space available basis. Students who are not admitted for one semester must reapply if they want to be considered for another semester. Students placed on a waiting list and not admitted during a given academic year must also reapply the following year.
Prospective nursing students should review the technical standards for nursing (cognitive, physical, and behavioral criteria)
