Nursing Program at NYU

One application, multiple options, nearly unlimited career opportunities: those are the benefits of an agreement between St. Lawrence University and New York University's College of Nursing to expedite St. Lawrence students' entrance into NYU's nursing programs for a second bachelor's degree and a master's degree.

After earning a bachelor's degree at St. Lawrence, students may enroll in NYU's accelerated 15-month program or its standard two-year program, both of which lead to a bachelor of science in nursing. If students wish to pursue specialized study, they can enroll in NYU's Dual-Degree Program, which leads to a bachelor's degree in nursing and a master's degree in nursing, preparing them for careers as nurse practitioners, nurse-midwives, educators or nurse managers.

US News & World Report ranks NYU's College of Nursing as the number one graduate nurse practitioner program in geriatrics in the nation. The college ranks 11th in research funding from the National Institute of Health and its doctoral program was recognized by the National Research Council with a rank of 7th among the nursing programs evaluated.

Any St. Lawrence University student may apply to the Health Careers Committee to be considered as a candidate for the SLU/NYU Nursing Program after the completion of at least five full semesters of study at St. Lawrence University.

  2. A minimum required course GPA of 3.20

Admission of a student into the program will be determined by NYUCN.
