Nursing (AAS)

The Associate in Applied Science (AAS) nursing program, accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC) and the New York State Education Department, prepares students to become members of the health team in health service agencies, clinics, community and long-term care agencies and hospitals. In addition to academic course work in the classroom, skills are practiced in the college laboratory and health care facilities. Approximately 45% of the clinical sections of the nursing curriculum are taught by adjunct faculty, who hold outside employment in a variety of clinical and educational settings. The faculty provides students with knowledge of the most current trends in the health care industry.

Registered Nurses (BS)

The Bachelor of Science (BS) degree program for Registered Nurses (RN) is a flexible upper level program that provides didactic and clinical courses on Wednesdays to meet the needs of RN students. In addition to academic course work, students practice physical assessment skills in a college laboratory setting and select clinical agencies afford students dynamic opportunities to expand their knowledge base in leadership, community health, and in urban health issues. Upon completion of the program, nurses will have the foundation for both graduate studies and progressively more complex clinical leadership roles in healthcare. The computer resources at City Tech facilitate the Faculty's ability to offer courses fully and partially on-line. This expanded use of technology accommodates RN schedules and enhances students' ability to deal with the rapid expansion of information technology.

Applicants for the BS program must be graduates of an accredited nursing program and must be licensed as a Registered Nurse in NY before enrolling in the first clinical nursing course. Applicants standing will be evaluated based on their prior academic records.
