One Year Advanced Option

Complete your Nursing AAS degree (RN) and start your BSN in one year of study.

The One Year Advanced Placement Nursing option will allow eligible students to begin the Nursing program in the summer, condensing two core clinical nursing courses (Nursing 1 and Nursing 2) in the first term. Successful students will continue on to Nursing 3 in the fall and complete their studies the following spring with Nursing 4, where you will have the option to start taking courses towards your BSN degree through Empire State College.

NOTE: This program is a summer start, daytime only option that meets Monday through Friday, eight hours per day.
