There are one-year certificate programs offered, associate degree programs, and bachelor’s degree programs. The campus is fairly large and is situated on 625 acres with 44 buildings.

Nursing Programs

Associate in Applied Science Degree

Delhi offers an associate degree in nursing that prepares students to enter the workforce when they graduate. They will be professional Registered Nurses (RNs) after passing the NCLEX-RN. RNs work in industrial settings, geriatric centers, public and private healthcare agencies, and acute care facilities. The nursing program is selective, and students must meet the minimum requirements to be considered. These are a high school grade average of at least 80, Algebra Regents grade of 80, Biology Regents grade of 80, English Regents grade of 80, or a transfer GPA of 3.0.

Once a candidate is accepted into the program, they are assigned an advisor who will guide them when planning their schedule for the two years that they are at Delhi. A total of 69 credits must be earned, and a minimum grade of C+ is required in all nursing courses. Students complete liberal arts and science classes plus nursing core courses. They are also assigned to a variety of healthcare facilities for clinical experience for a well-rounded experience in acute care, psychiatric, maternity, pediatric, and other specialty areas.

Online RN to BSN Program

This program at Delhi is for RNs who want to continue their education and earn their Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree in the most flexible way possible. Since it is designed for working nurses, it is 100% online and does not require RNs to sit in class. Courses may be completed at the convenience of the student. There are practicum experiences that are required, but these are completed near the student’s home. RNs with an associate degree are often able to transfer between 60 and 80 credits. There are only 120 credits needed for a bachelor’s degree at Delhi, so students begin with at least half of the credits needed. A benefit to the program is that employers often pay 100% of the tuition for associate degree level nurses to continue their education and earn their bachelor’s degree. Many RNs pay little to nothing for their bachelor’s degree that will provide multiple career opportunities over their lifetime.

The time that the program takes to complete depends on how many credits are transferred. Students must complete more liberal arts and sciences, electives, and higher level nursing courses. There are some requirements for RNs to enter this program, including an RN license. Applicants must also have at least a 2.8 grade point average in their associate degree coursework. Those who complete the online program are eligible to graduate with other students when they complete the program.
