Thank you for your interest in our degree programs in Nursing.
The New York City College of Technology (City Tech) offers two nursing programs, the Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree and the Bachelor of Science (BS) degree program for Registered Nurses.
Health care is one of the most rapidly expanding industries in the nation and our degree programs in nursing are two of the college's most competitive offerings. Early application is strongly recommended.
The Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree is fully accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission and is approved by the New York State Education Department. On average, City Tech nursing graduates pass the National Council Licensing Examination (NCLEX-RN) with higher mean scores than the combined average of all schools of nursing in New York State. Based on Watson's Theory of Caring, the program emphasizes the knowledge and skills required to become a registered professional nurse. In addition to nursing courses, the program includes study in the biological sciences, psychology and general education. You will practice nursing skills in both college laboratories and affiliated New York City hospitals, community health agencies and long-term care facilities.
The Bachelor of Science (BS) degree program is for Registered Nurses who want to become nurse leaders and managers as well as develop their critical thinking and research skills. The BS program is accredited by the New York State Education Department and is accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission.
