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 project 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.


RN, 1+2+1 BS in Nursing

“I started gaining real-world experience during my second year in the Nursing Program through clinical rotations at Buffalo area 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.”
