This upper-division program, accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, prepares nurses to assume advanced clinical and management positions in a variety of health care settings, including hospitals, home-health programs and public health agencies.

About

Nursing courses, which are taught by professors who serve as both educators and mentors, include content related to professional issues, theory, research, management theory, human growth and development, communication, pathophysiology, health assessment and family and community nursing. Students are also required to take liberal arts and sciences courses and other courses related to their major.

Courses are offered on flexible day and evening schedules to meet the needs of the working nurse. 

The B.S. in Nursing at the Long Island University (LIU)  courses build on the knowledge and experience that registered nurses already possess as graduates of diploma and associate degree nursing programs.
