Nursing (BS) (Traditional 4-Year)

Program Description

NYU Rory Meyers College of Nursing offers a 4-year BS degree program that prepares students to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) to obtain licensure. High school graduates enter this program as freshmen in the fall.

The BS program combines a strong core of arts and science courses with a progression of nursing courses that provide increasing levels of knowledge and skills for addressing health needs throughout the lifespan. The 128-credit curriculum incorporates 44 credits of liberal arts courses, 20 credits of science and prerequisite courses, and 64 credits of nursing core and clinical courses. In addition to courses at NYU Meyers, students take courses at NYU’s College of Arts and Sciences and Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development. Since nursing courses begin in the junior year, students are able to take advantage of the University’s study abroad programs during sophomore year.
