The impending shortage of practitioners and current critical shortage of educators is leading to multiple options for those interested in the nursing profession. Jobs are available nationwide in a wide range of settings with excellent salaries and opportunities for growth. At Alfred State, we are preparing students to be designers, coordinators, and managers of health care. Our students graduate as leaders contributing to the advancement of health care and the profession itself. The Nursing Department offers an associate degree nursing program accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN).
The associate degree is designed to prepare individuals to become registered nurses (RNs). Students of this program become eligible to take the NCLEX-RN licensing exam and receive excellent clinical preparation in a variety of settings.
Alfred State nursing AAS graduates may enter directly into the Alfred State bachelor's degree program in nursing. The AAS program can be completed full-time in two years or part-time as the student desires and is a face-to-face model. The upper-level nursing courses are offered in an online format.
