The Instructional Program

The Associate Degree in Nursing is a two-year program; students who successfully complete the program are eligible to take the NCLEX-RN examination. Delhi's Nursing program is accredited by the NLNAC, 3343 Peachtree Road NE, Suite 500, Atlanta, Georgia, 30326; phone: 404-975-5000.

The Nursing program consists of a combination of theoretical and clinical courses. The goal is to educate students to deliver optimum total patient care. Students learn to take responsibility for their clients and to make informed, evidence-based decisions with regard to the physical and psychosocial needs of each client. The combination of classroom instruction and clinical experience gives students many opportunities to apply their theoretical knowledge to clinical practice.

Full- and part-time study is available within the Nursing curriculum. If part-time study is pursued, a student must complete program requirements within four years.

Clinical rotations are provided at several hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, physicians' offices, and mental health facilities.  Transportation to clinical sites is the responsibility of the individual student. Because of the clinical component, special uniforms, health requirements, immunizations, and professional rescuer CPR are required of nursing students. Students will receive information about this after they are accepted into the program.

Nursing is a licensure program and has special requirements for entry and licensure. This information should be utilized when making career choices. Conviction for a felony or misdemeanor may affect an individual's right to be licensed. Applicants with concerns should contact the Albany Licensing Bureau at 1-800-342-3729.

Partnership for Nursing Opportunities

SUNY Delhi and Bassett Healthcare in Cooperstown have joined forces to provide attractive and affordable paths to both associate and baccalaureate degrees in Nursing, as well as employment with a major regional healthcare provider. The program is sequential and begins with entrance in year two as an LPN in the A.A.S degree program in Nursing at Delhi.  The student can then work part time for Bassett Hospital and continue on through a specially designed educational program leading first to an associate degree in Nursing from Delhi and then to a bachelor degree in Nursing. Special financial aid is available to program participants. For additional information, contact Delhi's Admissions Office at 1-800-96-DELHI.
