The Adelphi University College of Nursing and Public Health program allows the registered nurse to advance their career by completing educational goals in a dynamic, convenient and flexible environment. Classes are scheduled generally one day a week. Classes are offered in a variety of ways; as live classes, blended classes and online classes.
Current licensure as a registered nurse in New York State and a 3.0 GPA is required for admission to our program. However, eligibility for unlicensed graduates of accredited associate or diploma programs who have licensure endorsement will be considered for provisional admission to the R.N. to B.S. program. Provisional admission will require that you pass the New York State Boards within 6 months of graduation from your associate degree or diploma program. Students entering the provisional program will only be permitted to take up to 9 credits in non-nursing required courses. Any additional questions regarding admission to this program should be addressed to the Director of the R.N. to B.S. program.
Diploma graduates are required to take and pass 24 credits from Excelsior College. Students are required to take Excelsior Exams in the following areas: adult nursing, maternal and child nursing and psychiatric/mental health nursing (at the baccalaureate level).
