Federal Licensure Disclosures

NYU Meyers offers academic programs leading to advanced degrees for which professional practice requires license or certification by state, local, and/or professional boards. The curricula in these programs have been designed to be consistent with recognized professional and national standards. However, the requirements of the state boards and licensing agencies vary from state to state and over time. Meyers is currently completing research to determine whether our programs leading to professional licensure meet the initial licensure requirements of each state’s board of nursing, as well as other state and local regulators.

Before enrolling in our program, prospective students are advised to consult this page and with the applicable licensing authority in the state in which they expect to work in order to confirm that our accreditation and curriculum meet the state’s eligibility requirements for the specific licensure or certification sought and that successful completion of our degree program will further their career goals.

Prospective students living and/or working outside of the US should confirm with the appropriate certifying agency whether successful completion of an NYU Meyers nursing degree program will meet their credentialing requirements.

All applicable NYU Meyers academic programs prepare students to sit for licensure in New York State.


This page will also inform you whether a particular state is part of the Nurse Licensure Compact, which allows nurses to obtain multi-state licenses.
