SUNY Ulster and Empire State College are making it easier for Registered Nurses (R.N.) to secure their Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in the Hudson Valley through a partnership designed to support students during their transition from an associate’s degree or diploma to a baccalaureate degree.
Registered Nurses with an associate degree or diploma in Nursing have the opportunity to complete 7 out of 10 General Education course requirements, plus 15 credits of electives at SUNY Ulster in a face to face setting at the lower SUNY Ulster tuition rate. In addition, credits can be earned for prior learning, independent study, and successful completion of selected examinations. Intensive mentoring is provided to assist students in developing an individualized program of learning and with transitioning to a fully online program through Empire State College. These credits will then be applied toward the B.S. from Empire State College.
Professionals with their associate degree in nursing and an R.N. license should contact Dr. Lisa Schulte for an individual appointment to discuss courses they may be interested in transferring to the B.S. and/or the 15 credits that may be most beneficial and of greatest interest to them. Dr. Schulte may be contacted at (845) 688-1585 or via email at email@example.com.
Admission to the B.S. program requires a current, an unencumbered license to practice as a registered nurse in New York State. Additionally, admission to the R.N. to B.S. Partnership requires an associate degree or diploma in nursing from an accredited nursing program.
