College of Nursing - Academic Programs at Downstate

Undergraduate Programs of Study in Nursing

The College of Nursing offers undergraduate programs leading to baccalaureate degree in nursing.


Graduate Programs of Study in Nursing

The College of Nursing offers graduate programs leading to Master of Science Degree in the four advanced practice nursing roles: Clinical Nurse Specialist (Adult Track and High Risk Mother and Infant Track), Nurse Anesthesia, Nurse Midwifery and Nurse Practitioner (Family and Women's Health).

For nurses who already hold master's degree, the College offers certificate programs for preparation as Nurse Practitioners.

All degree programs except the nurse anesthesia program, may be pursued on a full-time or part-time basis. The nurse anesthesia program is only offered full-time.

These graduate programs prepare advanced practice nurses to 1) assume responsibility and accountability for health promotion, assessment, diagnosis and management of client problems; 2) provide leadership for the improvement of nursing care through the application of advanced knowledge and research skills; and 3) acquire a foundation for doctoral study.
