About Our Program
The nursing curriculum is designed to provide students with learning opportunities to excel in the nursing profession. Students are required to complete a course that focuses on nursing research that culminates in a proposed evidence-based presentation that may be translated into practice. Learning activities are centered on developing evidence-based practice; leadership development; examining the nurse’s role in quality care and patient outcomes and exploring global and local community health through culture-based presentations, community assessments, and community health teaching projects.
Daemen’s 1+2+1 curriculum prepares nurses to enter the competitive job market with the most desirable academic and clinical preparation, a BS degree. Research demonstrates that the BS-prepared nurse has improved outcomes in patient care. Our graduates work with patients and populations across the lifespan in a variety of settings.

“I started gaining real-world experience during my second year in the Nursing Program through clinical rotations at local hospitals. I was able to have one on one contact with patients, perform critical assessments, administer medications, and give direct patient care. I plan to continue my education at Daemen in their Nurse Practitioner Program and specialize in orthopedics.”
