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.

  • a global perspective

  • exceptional clinical experiences

  • Nursing students performing research

    groundbreaking research

  • teachers who practice

  • degrees hospitals want

  • personal attention

we've got a degree for you.
