A.A.S. in Nursing (QCC) leading to the B.S. in Nursing (School of Professional Studies/CUNY)

Clinical students in NU 101 may apply for the Dual/joint Degree Program in Nursing with School of Professional Studies. Admission to the program is extremely competitive and will be based on the student’s GPA and overall academic work. A student must receive a faculty recommendation indicating a strong clinical performance in NU-101. In addition to the courses required for their A.A.S. degree, students will be encouraged to complete additional liberal arts, science, and humanities courses that can be applied to the B.S. degree. Students will be guided in the selection of these courses by an advisor to maximize the courses that meet the general education, as well as the pluralism and diversity, graduation requirements for School of Professional Studies.

Due to a federal restriction against issuing F-1 student visas for international students in online programs, students applying to this program must provide documentation of one of the following categories:

  • U.S. Citizenship

  • Permanent Residency

  • Granted asylum, refugee status, temporary protected status, withholding of removal, deferred enforced departure, or deferred action status by the U.S. Government

Students who require an F-1 visa to study in the United States are eligible to apply to the York College Dual/Joint A.A.S. to B.S. Nursing degree program and the standard A.A.S. in Nursing degree program.
