This is not your standard nursing program.
URI's College of Nursing goes well beyond what you might expect. First of all, you'll find the individual attention you'd get at a smaller university and the unique clinical experiences of a much larger institution. You'll have plenty of opportunities for cross-discipline work with engineering, psychology, business, nutrition and more. And our faculty are as renowned for their research and inventions as they are for excellence in primary care, community service, and workforce development.
we've got a degree for you.
Whether your goal is the traditional B.S. degree, or you’re moving from RN to B.S., you’ll graduate more than ready for entry-level positions in medical, surgical, maternity, geriatric, pediatric psychiatric, or community nursing fields in all kinds of clinical settings.
Your options for advanced nursing are many here. The M.S. is available for acute care nurse practitioner, adult-gerontological nurse practitioner/clinical nurse specialist, family nurse practitioner, and nursing education. We’re pioneering the DNP in Rhode Island, and we’ve got the only Ph.D. in Nursing program in the state.
If you already have your Master’s degree, advance your skills in Acute Care Nurse Practitioner, Adult-Gerontological Nurse Practitioner/Clinical Nurse Specialist, and Family Nurse Practitioner.. For nurses interested in caring for the dying and their loved ones, we offer a minor in thanatology.
