Online RN to BS Program Ranked Top Five in New York State
Rankings by RegisteredNursing.org Recognize SUNY Poly as Top-Tier Institution for Advancing Nursing Careers
SUNY Poly announced that its program offering a bachelor’s of science with a major in nursing to current registered nurses (RNs) through the College of Health Sciences has been ranked No. 5 in New York State by RegisteredNursing.org.
The online RN to BS program is designed to serve licensed registered nurses from state-approved associate or diploma nursing programs who are prepared to focus on their professional and career development. Most courses are offered in an asynchronous format, which provides working nurses with maximum flexibility to engage in coursework. Through various partnerships with statewide healthcare institutions, students are able to attend synchronous classes virtually and conveniently fulfill practicum requirements.
“We appreciate this recognition that further demonstrates SUNY Poly’s commitment to developing the next generation of healthcare workers in New York State and beyond,” said Interim Dean of the College of Health Sciences Dr. Joanne Joseph. “Our RN to BS program provides nurses the opportunity to get a top-notch education while working in the field.”
In addition to providing students with the tools and knowledge to grow both professionally and personally, as well as advance their nursing career, the program also allows nurses in the program to comply with New York State’s “BSN in 10” law, which requires RNs to attain a bachelor’s degree within 10 years of initial licensure.
The RegisteredNursing.com ranking was determined by analyzing data sources from the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Postsecondary Education (OPE), the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS), the Council for Community and Economic Research, and the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). Total points calculated for each institution includes factors such as tuition fees, graduation rates, and accreditation status.
