About Utica ABSN: Satellite Locations

Utica University has two satellite locations in place to support our ABSN program. The first, launched in January 2013, is located in Syracuse, NY (approximately 55 miles from our main campus in Utica, New York). The newest location in Albany, NY (approximately 100 miles from our main campus) was launched in 2022. You and other members of your cohort will come to one of our ABSN program sites to take proctored exams, participate in clinical skills classes, and complete nursing simulation labs under the guidance of faculty. 

Not only does this program fulfill the state’s need for nurses by producing practice-ready care providers, but they make the ABSN curriculum more accessible to more qualified students. Developed by the Utica University Department of Nursing, the accelerated nursing curriculum is designed to teach students how to: 

  • Adapt the theories of a liberal education into nursing practice. 
  • Demonstrate leadership in delivering high-quality patient care.
  • Adhere to the legal and ethical standards when practicing nursing. 
  • Provide safe, competent and ethical care across the patient lifespan.
