As an accelerated nursing program, our students immediately jump into a rigorous sequence of online and onsite curriculum specific to a nursing career.

  • Online nursing theory coursework that establishes the foundation of your education.

  • 588 hours of real-world clinical experiences throughout central NY starting your first semester.
  • Highly supportive nursing faculty and a success coach committed to your ongoing success.

Our Online, On-site Approach to Learning

While the online nursing coursework component of Utica ABSN will equip you with a solid nursing theory foundation, it requires in-person practicum. After all, it’s how we prepare you so well for your future nursing career.

As such, you must complete lab hours and sit for proctored exams at our ABSN program site and complete clinical rotations at healthcare facilities in Central New York approximately three to four days per week. If you are not local to the Syracuse-Liverpool area, that may mean you have to relocate to participate in our program.

Don’t stress if enrolling in the Utica College ABSN program requires you to move: We offer relocation support services to help ease your transition once you’re accepted into our program.
