Nursing (AAS)

SUNY Delhi is recognized as a leader in nursing education, with a long history of providing nursing education to serve local and state-wide healthcare needs.

Our Associate of Applied Science in Nursing degree will prepare you to work as a Registered Nurse. In this two-year program, students learn to take personal responsibility for their patients and to make decisions with regard to the physical, psychological, spiritual and emotional needs of each patient. Direct, holistic patient care is emphasized.

In our program, you’ll gain vital real-world experience in clinical rotations at primary, secondary and tertiary health care settings. The mental health component of the program gives students exposure in both acute care and community treatment programs.

Program Highlights

  • Graduates are eligible to take the NCLEX-RN licensing exam
  • Attend on a full-time or part-time basis
  • Receive excellent clinical preparation with a variety of agencies throughout the tri-county area

Career Opportunities

Employment opportunities for registered nurses are available in acute care facilities, in industrial settings and geriatric centers, and with public and private health care agencies.
