Prospective Students Can Learn About Joint RN to BSN Program Between SUNY Orange and SUNY Binghamton

MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. – SUNY Orange will host an Open House from Noon to 2 p.m., Monday, April 28 to showcase a new collaborative relationship with the SUNY Binghamton Decker School of Nursing that will allow registered nurses to pursue their bachelor’s of nursing degree through a combination of online and in-person courses offered by the two institutions.

The Open House will be held in Room 207 of the College’s Bio-Tech Building on the Middletown campus, and will allow community college graduates who are currently registered nurses the opportunity to investigate how they can pursue a BSN degree offered by SUNY Binghamton.

The program, if taken on a full-time basis, is designed to be completed in four semesters. A part-time option can be considered but a program plan must be completed with an academic advisor prior to enrolling in the program. General education courses required for graduation can be taken at SUNY Orange or transferred into the program from another college or university. Courses required by the Decker School of Nursing can be taken in-person at SUNY Orange or online with SUNY Binghamton professors.

Applicants for admission to the program must: be a licensed RN, submit proof of licensure to Decker School Student Services and the Decker School clinical site coordinator (prior to starting the program), and have a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better, including a minimum prerequisite course GPA of 3.0. Candidates’ potential for success is evaluated based on references and previous education.
