Undergraduate Programs

NYU Rory Meyers College of Nursing offers one of the top-ranked undergraduate nursing programs in the country through 15-month accelerated and traditional four-year programs. Please review the detailed information provided for each nursing program, including eligibility, curriculum, and how to apply. 

This program is a specially designed, accelerated curriculum for non-nurse college graduates with bachelor’s degrees (in any discipline) who have completed the nursing prerequisite courses. Students will complete a 15-month program and graduate with a BS in nursing, preparing them to enter the workforce as RNs.

Our dual-degree BS/MS program enables students to obtain a bachelor’s degree in nursing and advance to a master’s degree that prepares them to be advanced practice nurses serving in roles such as nurse practitioners, nurse-midwives, informaticists, or clinical research nurses.

Collaborating with the NYU School of Global Public Health, the dual major of Global Public Health and Nursing integrates NYU's established excellence in nursing education with a comprehensive understanding of public health strategies.

This undergraduate advanced program offers extra educational and extracurricular activities to enhance nurses' clinical thinking, professional development, and leadership skills. This curriculum requires a completion of 128 total credits.

This program is offered to prospective students who are looking to make a career change into nursing but have not completed the prerequisite courses. Students will complete all of their science prerequisites during their first and/or second semesters at NYU before entering the Accelerated 15-month program. Students will graduate with a bachelor’s degree in nursing and enter the workforce as an RN.

This program outlines the traditional curriculum for a young high school graduate entering as a first-year student or someone who has earned fewer than 32 college credits. Students will complete required liberal arts and science classes in the first two years and begin nursing coursework in their junior year. Traditional students will graduate with a BS in nursing and be prepared to enter the workforce as an RN.

Prospective students who want to transfer into the nursing program from two-year, four-year, or from within NYU are considered transfer students. No bachelor's degree is required, but applicants must have taken 32 or more college credits. Any liberal arts and science prerequisites still needed will be taken in the first semester, followed by nursing sequence coursework.

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 NYU 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.
