Baccalaureate (BS)

NYU Rory Meyers College of Nursing offers one of the top-ranked baccalaureate nursing programs in the country through 15-month accelerated and traditional four-year programs. Select students, in conjunction with the Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing, are eligible to apply to an undergraduate fellowship dedicated to the care of older adults.

Highlights of the undergraduate program include: 

  • A nursing curriculum that takes advantage of the outstanding resources of NYU to develop a strong foundation in the liberal arts and sciences.
  • Clinical education settings that include the most prestigious medical centers in the world.
  • A state-of-the-art Clinical Simulation Learning Center.
  • The NCLEX pass rate for the first quarter of 2019 was 99%--compared with a national and state-wide pass rate of 92%.
  • Faculty who are nationally recognized as nursing scholars and leaders in a wide range of specialty areas.

Students who complete the BS program at Meyers and successfully pass the NCLEX-RN are qualified for the role of a baccalaureate prepared generalist nurse as described by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN, 2008). Examples of generalist nurse roles include (a) provider of direct and indirect patient-centered care in a variety of practice settings (hospitals, out-patient centers), and (b) manager or coordinator of care for patients in similar settings. In addition, NYU Meyers’ graduates are prepared to provide and advocate for safe, culturally-competent, evidence-based nursing care to improve patient outcomes.
