The Rory Meyers College of Nursing, founded in 1932, is the second-largest private university college of nursing in the country. Located in the heart of New York City on the Medical School campus, the College offers an array of tailored programs to fit the diverse needs of today’s nursing students at all levels. As a center for research in nursing, health, and interdisciplinary science, the College prepares its students to be leaders in healthcare on both a local and global scale. Their mission is to shape the future of nursing through leadership in healthcare policy.
The College offers one of the top-ranked baccalaureate nursing programs in the country. There are two Bachelor of Science programs-a 15-month accelerated program and a traditional four-year program. Program curriculum combines evidence-based classroom and clinical learning to prepare nurses at the undergraduate level.
Traditional Four-Year Program
The traditional four-year program prepares students to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX). The BS program combines liberal arts courses with nursing courses to ensure students receive a well-rounded education. Since nursing courses don’t begin until junior year, students are able to take advantage of study opportunities within NYU’s global network during their sophomore year.
Accelerated 15-Month Program
The accelerated program is completed over the course of four consecutive semesters and is intended for students already holding a bachelor’s degree. These students must have also completed the required nursing prerequisite courses prior to starting the program. This program prepares students to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN).
Global Public Health/Nursing Combined Major
The Global Public Health/Nursing Combined Major at NYU combines nursing education with in-depth perspectives in public health approaches. Students who take on the double major will work closely with their advisor to select courses that complement their interests and career aspirations.
