Undergraduate Academic Success Program (UASP)

“The Undergraduate Academic Success Program gives more students the opportunity to succeed in achieving the Bachelor of Science degree, a degree they will soon need. It means more RNs can now apply and anticipate being accepted into a program that will help them continue and improve their careers.”

Christina Haught MS, CPNP-PC

Christina Haught

My educational background includes earning an AS, BS and MS in nursing. I most recently completed my MS here at SUNY Upstate Medical University and became a board-certified pediatric nurse practitioner in 2021. I have been an RN for nearly a decade specializing in neonatology. I currently work in the NICU at Crouse Hospital in adjunct with my role here as the Student Success Specialist. 

Through my own personal experiences in academia and nursing I have seen the challenges faced by students. That has led me on the journey of advocating and helping student nurses succeed. Through this program I hope to foster a welcoming, empowering, and supportive environment which improves your accessibility to the tools, support, and services needed to achieve personal, professional, and academic achievement during and beyond your time here at SUNY Upstate Medical University. Please reach out with any needs or questions you may have. 

Best wishes & I hope to meet you soon!
