Students Take the Fast Track to a Nursing Degree
The University is making it easier for college graduates to choose nursing
as a career through new accelerated bachelor's and master's programs.
A plan approved by New York State makes Rochester one of only 25 schools in
the country to offer the fast-track curricula. Administrators say the new programs
will go a long way toward alleviating the effects of a predicted nursing shortage
in coming years.
Students with a bachelor's degree can get a nursing degree in as little as
a year if they have certain prerequisite courses such as microbiology and physiology.
The master's program includes one year to earn the required bachelor's degree
and two years of training that includes an intensive classroom component.
