The faculty at the College of Nursing will prepare you for a fulfilling career in practice, education and research. We are at the forefront of new ventures in nursing education.


BS and MS Programs

The College of Nursing’s bachelor’s and master’s degree programs have been reaccredited and the post-graduate certificate program accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education’s Board of Commissioners through 2024.

DNP Program

In February 2015, the DNP program at Upstate’s College of Nursing underwent its first accreditation compliance review. The evaluation team from the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), made assessments of the College’s DNP program regarding compliance with its Standards for Accreditation of Baccalaureate and Graduate Nursing Programs. The CCNE visit resulted in the College of Nursing receiving full accreditation status for the maximum five-year period, 2015-2020. The CCNE noted zero compliance concerns – unusual in accreditation reports – meaning the College exceeded standard achievement outcomes by a high margin.
