Nursing A.A.S.

Nursing students learning about dosage

Be the heart and soul of health care.

The nursing profession offers one of the fastest-growing career opportunities in health care today.

In the SUNY Morrisville Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree program in nursing, you’ll undertake two rigorous years of study with a clear outcome: you’ll be eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). This will be accomplished through a curriculum consisting of 64 course credits, with 37 in nursing and 27 in general education.

Each semester, the program combines classroom learning with clinical experience in a hospital or lab session. You will work directly with patients under the supervision of a faculty member who has years of experience working as a nurse and will give you direct attention, as our student-to-faculty ratio never exceeds eight students in any clinical setting.

And because of the demand for excellent nurses and our program’s reputation in the field, the world is open to you when you graduate.

You also will be able to seamlessly transfer into our Bachelor of Science in nursing (B.S.) degree program in nursing to further your knowledge and expertise of the field.
