Welcome to the Nursing and Allied Health Sciences
Our mission is to prepare students to contribute to a global society and a diverse work force as productive and well educated healthcare professionals. We accomplish this by continuously improving teaching and service in a personalized, culturally rich and dynamic learning environment that fosters student, faculty and staff engagement.
All nursing courses have a practice component that utilizes the simulation laboratory. Each nursing course will have scheduled lab times for these experiences that will take place outside of scheduled class and clinical hours. Students are expected to attend the simulation laboratory as scheduled.
Licensed Practical Nursing
Our program is an evening and weekend 56-credit certificate program (with 22 transferable nursing credits to the RN program at BCC).

The College has been certified by the New York State Education Department to offer instruction (included within the LPN curriculum) leading to New York State Nurse Aide Certification.
