State University of New York at New Paltz (Department of Nursing)




The upper-division baccalaureate program in nursing provides registered nurses an opportunity to change or expand their educational and/or career goals. The program confers an understanding of the human health-illness experience and the theoretical underpinnings needed for professional practice. It strives for a synthesis of learnings from the liberal arts and sciences with the discipline's body of knowledge. The practice of nursing is operationalized in this curriculum by the enactment of five interrelated roles: practitioner, teacher/learner, leader, advocate and researcher from an appropriate theoretical perspective.

At the baccalaureate level, nursing education prepares professional nurse generalists who can deliver health care to individuals, families, communities, and societal groups. The program is designed to cultivate professional nursing roles and to provide nurses with a sound academic foundation for pursuing graduate study in nursing. At the graduate level, nursing education prepares professional nurses for advanced practice.

Faculty guide and collaborate with the adult learner for the attainment of educational goals through directed and self-directed learning experiences. They seek to expand in the learner the commitment for continued learning and contributions to professional practice. Selected clinical assignments afford the student the opportunity to deliver direct nursing care to clients in a variety of settings.

UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAM

The Department of Nursing offers an upper-division Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Associate degree nurses enter the program as transfer students. Students who meet the requirements for admission to the nursing major enter the program with junior year status. Up to 70 community college credits (30 nursing credits and 40 liberal arts credits) may be accepted for transfer. Hospital-trained RNs with no prior college-credits enter through an individualized self-managed program of credit-by-examination, which includes CLEP, Excelsior College Exams, and the ACE-II Exams. The SUNY New Paltz BSN program is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.
