Whether or not you're enrolled in the College of Nursing, SUNY Upstate offers a variety of accredited, continuing nursing education courses for interested nurses. From half day to weekend-long conferences, nurses have the opportunity to enhance or learn new skills.

Continuing education courses are taught by a range of skilled faculty from across the region.  We partner with service line departments on our campus-such as Pediatrics or the AIDS center-to provide accredited specialty conferences. Courses such as Children at Risk, NP Review Course, Clinical Skills Day and Post Master's Certificate programs are repeated regularly because of popular interest.


Many continuing education programs are awarded with contact hours.

The SUNY Upstate Medical University Institute for Continuing Nursing Education is an approved provider of continuing nursing education by the Northeast Multi-State Division, an accredited approver by the American Nurses™ Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation.
