Hartwick has over 75 years of experience preparing nurses at the baccalaureate level. Our NCLEX pass rate for May 2020 graduates was 92.59%. The broad liberal arts and sciences education that complements Hartwick’s nursing program provides the communication, critical thinking, informed decision-making, and leadership skills the profession demands. Hartwick nurses are highly qualified, self-directed individuals who are able to thrive in both the present and a rapidly changing healthcare system of the future.
The Department of Nursing offers a variety of programs to both high school graduates and transfer students. Whether you have a high school diploma, a bachelor’s degree or anything in between, we have a program for you. Licensed registered nurses (RNs) with an Associate degree in nursing—even those who are working full-time–can pursue a Bachelor’s degree with a major in Nursing at Hartwick.
Please note: Hartwick College focuses on offering fall, January, and spring term undergraduate courses in person, however circumstances may require us to offer a small number of courses in this department through distance education. In times of emergency, following regulatory guidelines, all classes may temporarily need to be delivered through distance education, including online. We also offer a slate of courses online in the summer to help our students make progress towards their degrees. With support from an academic advisor, students needing particular courses may have other online options as well. If you have questions about the way courses are delivered in your program, please contact your Department or Program Chair.
The Class of 2019 completed their Senior Independent Practicums at major medical centers. 80% of our employed 2019 graduates are working at their practicum site upon graduation. Others will pursue graduate study for advanced nursing degrees.
