Program Benefits

  • Our unique program allows students to complete their first year at Daemen, earn their AAS in nursing at an area partner community college, and then sit for their RN licensure exam before completing their final year at Daemen to graduate with a B.S. degree. 
  • Daemen nursing students pay community college tuition in their second and third year and are given a 50 percent tuition discount when they return to Daemen for their final year of the program.
  • Our curriculum combines the direct care clinical strengths of the associate degree programs with the strengths of the baccalaureate program, which promotes critical thinking, leadership skills, evidence-based practice, quality care, population health, and professional development. 
  • Daemen has added more guaranteed seats and opportunities with our nursing 1+2+1 partnership with Niagara County Community College.
  • Students have the advantage of working as a registered nurse after their third year.
