What MSC professor has influenced you and why?

"Dr. Crawford has helped me break out of my shell and get me into the hang of being a college student. Professor Heimer has also been a major influential force on my college student development. When I thought things were impossible, she gave me the encouragement I needed!"

The Nursing (A.A.S.) degree at Morrisville State College is a two-year degree program which prepares students for entry into the profession of nursing. Upon completion of the Associate Degree Nursing program, students will meet the New York state requirements to sit for the National Nursing licensing exam. The nursing program is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN)

Nursing is a profession with unlimited career growth and expansion. Registered professional nurses have unlimited opportunities to practice nursing with individuals of all ages and in a variety of healthcare settings.

Morrisville's program involves a combination of classroom learning and direct patient experience where students have the advantage of clinical experience with a low faculty to student ratio. The student to faculty ratio never exceeds 7-8 students for each faculty member per day in the clinical setting.

Admissions Requirements

Nursing is a competitive program that requires students to have a strong background in biology, chemistry and math. All applications are reviewed holistically for admission to the college. It is strongly suggested that SAT and/or ACT scores be submitted.

In order to be admitted directly into the Nursing Program, successful applicants must also take the NLN (http://www.nlnonlinetesting.org/ ) and receive a minimum score of 100. Accepted students who do not successfully score 100 or above on the NLN or who otherwise lack prerequisite academic background may be offered admission into Liberal Arts: Math and Science. These students will be advised by a Nursing Faculty member who can suggest coursework appropriate to the area of interest.

The NLN pre-admission exam is required. A minimum composite score of a 100 is required for admission into the nursing program.
