About ten years ago practical factors seemed to indicate that the long and storied tradition of the Nursing School was coming to an end. Now Niagara University announces the program has been re-accredited with a new focus for a 10 year period.
Niagara has a long history of nursing education with a proud legacy of successful and engaged alumni. Accredited by the New York State Department of Education and the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), Niagara’s nursing department is proud to offer three different degree programs:
- Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Nursing (4-Year Degree)
- RN-to-B.S. Completion Program (Post-Associate Degree)
- Accelerated B.S. in Nursing (1-Year Post-Baccalaureate Degree)
The bachelor of science is the preferred educational degree for nursing, providing nurses with a wide range of opportunities in the field.
Niagara’s nursing programs focus on preparing nurses who internalize and integrate the professional nursing paradigm of critical analysis and problem solving, healthcare leadership and management, communication and research utilization, community-based care and the values of respect for human dignity and ethical decision-making related to the scope of professional nursing practice. Our goal is to educate nurses who, upon completion of the program, have been prepared to lead, manage and deliver outstanding professional comprehensive nursing care in any healthcare setting. The programs use active learning strategies and strive to be flexible and accessible for the adult learners.
