On the frontlines
In partnership with Bayfront Health St. Petersburg, students administered the COVID-19 vaccine in January 2021 to more than 60 high-risk individuals, including frontline health care workers and people aged 65 and up, as part of phase 1 of the Florida vaccine rollout plan. This once in a lifetime opportunity allowed members of Utica's hybrid nursing program in St. Petersburg to be a part of history as they help fight back against the pandemic.
Why a BS in Nursing?
A growing number of hospitals are only hiring nurses with baccalaureate degrees, and industry trends suggest that an associate degree in nursing could eventually become obsolete. There is also mounting evidence of our country’s increasing demand for baccalaureate-educated nurses as a means to improve patient outcomes and healthcare delivery.Nursing Fact Sheet
Speaking from Experience
Students receive first-hand insight and experience through a variety of speakers that includes alumni, professionals, and industry experts from throughout the medical field.
A baccalaureate education in nursing goes far beyond the fundamental nursing skills taught in an associate degree program. When you pursue a bachelor of science in nursing, your curriculum goes deeper into the nursing profession, covering areas such as nursing research, nursing management, and community health.
The Interprofessional Education (IPE) program at Utica College helps you develop a deeper understanding of a broad range of roles in the health professions so that you can effectively team up with practitioners in other disciplines to deliver outstanding patient care.Learn More
