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.
We offer a quality education at a superior value.
All undergraduate students complete the Institute of Healthcare Improvement (IHI) modules on improvement processes, patient safety, leadership, and person- and family-centered care.
The Traditional and Accelerated Undergraduate Programs create a workforce of baccalaureate-prepared nurses. Partnering with 10 area acute care hospitals, the Visiting Nursing Association and the Center for Hospice and Palliative Care, we strive to provide the best clinical experiences for our students.
Clinical rotations for these programs include 700 clinical hours, many of which are offered in innovative Dedicated Education Units (DEU). Both the Traditional and ABS Programs culminate in a three week preceptorship in Buffalo or New York City, where students are immersed in a one-on-one experience with a nurse in a clinical setting.
This program educates an existing workforce of registered nurses completely online in a student-centered, distance learning/asynchronous format that allows practicing nurses to attend school while maintaining employment. The online format is asynchronous, providing students the flexibility to take online courses on their own schedule. Instructors provide materials, lectures, tests and assignments that can be accessed anytime.
