You’ve Opened Your Heart, We’ll Open the Doors.

Serving your community. Helping your neighbors. Securing your future. There are so many benefits to a career in nursing – for you, for your family, for all of us. Hartwick College’s 18-month Accelerated Baccalaureate in Nursing Program opens doors to an exciting career in nursing, and our dedicated nursing faculty will guide you on your educational journey. You’re ready to become a nurse. You want a profession that is in demand, challenging, and dynamic. We’re ready to help you get there.  18-month Program begins the first week of June.

The mission of the Hartwick Nursing Program is to educate a highly qualified, self-directed nurse who will competently function today, as well as in the rapidly changing healthcare system of the future. Graduates of our program will possess the personal, intellectual, and social skills necessary to meet the challenges of an ever-changing, interdependent, and diverse world. Hartwick's flexible program is tailored to meet your needs. This is a calendar year program. Courses will be taught sequentially in 3-6 week blocks using a blend of face-to-face and distance, web-enhanced teaching; classes and clinical/learning lab experiences will be scheduled on the weekends and in the evenings.

Hartwick's Accelerated 18-Month Baccalaureate in Nursing Program was funded  during 2010-2011 in part by grants from the Appalachian Regional Commission and the New York State Health Foundation.
