Bachelor of Science in Nursing

A degree program that prepares students to become registered nurses who provide patient care and support in a variety of healthcare settings. The program covers various areas such as anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, and patient care. Students gain practical experience through clinical rotations in hospitals, clinics, and community settings.

At the vanguard of our changing health care system is nursing.

This program aims to develop a professional nurse who is able to assume entry-level positions in health facilities or community settings while building a strong sense of professional and clinical competence to thrive in various health care settings. We train our future nurses to study critically, make informed decisions with scientific evidence, work collaboratively and creatively, and be innovative in interprofessional health care environments.

Prior to graduation, the UB School of Nursing assists our students to be assessed for Health Care Services NC II and Caregiving NC II. These national certificates not only attest to their training and capacity as nurses but can be utilized for future work and professional endeavors and qualifications.
