Nursing Programs

Bachelor of Science, Master of Science, and Certificate of Advanced Study in Nursing

The nursing program at New Paltz is in a phase out phase. There are currently 148 students enrolled in undergraduate programs. Most of these students attend only one-third time. There are 19 students enrolled in the Master of Science in Nursing degree program and 0 students are currently enrolled in the Certificate of Advanced Study in Nursing. Those who are currently enrolled will be given the opportunity complete their degree over the next three years. No new students are currently being accepted into the program, and none will be accepted because the closure is a permanent one. The college will save one-half a million dollars by making this change. There are 11 students who have been accepted into the Bachelor of Science program that will not be allowed to begin. They have been sent to SUY Delhi as of Fall, 2009.
