About Utica College

Established in 1946, Utica College is an accredited institution known for its excellent academic programs and outstanding faculty committed to student success.

As a private, nonprofit college, we ground our educational philosophy in:

  • Personalized student attention
  • Lifelong learning
  • Community and professional service
  • Ethical behavior and integrity
  • Freedom of expression
  • Open, honest communication
  • The well-being of others

For more than 25 years, Utica College has offered a diverse mix of nursing programs. In that time, we have become a leader in nursing education with our innovative programs designed to meet the growing needs of the community.

One example is our Accelerated B.S. in Nursing (ABSN) program off the main campus near Syracuse, New York, which launched in January 2013 to address the nationwide nursing shortage and increase access to a high-quality nursing education.

About UticaABSN in Florida

ABSN Learning Site in St. Petersburg, FL

In 2014, we expanded our accredited ABSN program to help meet the growing demand for nurses in Florida with a satellite location in St. Petersburg. We launched another program site in Miramar in 2018, to address even further the state’s nursing shortage.

Not only do these programs 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 College 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.
