Undergraduate Programs

Our three distinct undergraduate programs prepare future and current nurses to thrive in their career and to confidently provide the highest level of care.

The University at Buffalo School of Nursing baccalaureate programs are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). Our highly competitive programs are designed to prepare students for the expanding role of professional nurses and the challenging work environments of contemporary nurses. 

The Traditional and Accelerated pre-licensure undergraduate programs in the School of Nursing programs are not offered in a fully online format. 

  • Traditional BS Program
    The Traditional Baccalaureate in Nursing Program consists of a robust curriculum, encompassing biomedical and social sciences, clinical nursing, and university general education courses. This ensures that our students have the professional education and broad skills necessary to assume a range of nursing positions.
  • RN to BS Program
    The RN to BS program builds upon knowledge and experience of registered nurses, preparing them to provide the necessary leadership to advance quality of care, patient safety and health services in an evolving health care system.
  • Accelerated BS Program
    The Accelerated Baccalaureate of Science (ABS) in Nursing Program offers a second degree option for those individuals with a bachelor's or master's degree in another discipline to obtain a bachelor's degree in nursing. This highly competitive program allows students to earn their nursing degree in 12 months.
