Bachelor's degree program in nursing now offered in Ithaca
SYRACUSE, N.Y. The College of Nursing at SUNY Upstate Medical University is offering classes in Ithaca for registered nurses who wish to earn a bachelor's degree.
The classes start January 8, 2007, and will continue through late April. Classes will be held Mondays and Wednesdays from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Cayuga Medical Center, located at 101 Dates Drive in Ithaca. New material will be offered each fall and spring semester. For spring 2007, two three-credit courses will be offered: "Conceptual Basis for Professional Nursing" and "Professional Writing."
"We are delighted to offer our degree program in this location, which will be convenient for many RNs," said College of Nursing Dean Elvira Szigeti, Ph.D., RN. "Nurses who take this part-time course of study should be able to complete their bachelor's degree in about four years."
The college's degree program builds on a registered nurse's previous education and courses are designed to allow students to balance work and other responsibilities. SUNY Upstate Medical University, located in Syracuse, has been offering advanced nursing education for nearly 30 years.
Space in the class is limited and students must sign up by Dec. 20. Students can take the first semester without enrolling in the college, and apply the credits when they matriculate. For more information, please contact the SUNY Upstate College of Nursing at 315-464-4276.
