RN to BS Program

3+1 Program

Begin your nursing education at a Rochester area community college and complete your bachelor’s degree at the School of Nursing through our 3+1 program.

You may complete the first three years of the bachelor’s degree at one of the following colleges:

    • Monroe Community College
    • Genesee Community College
    • Finger Lakes Community College

After you graduate and complete your NCLEX nursing licensure examination, the final year (equaling four semesters) will be completed at the University of Rochester through the RN to BS program.

If interested, you can apply through the community college of your choice. Upon admission to the 3+1 program, you will be guaranteed a space (assuming a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher) in our RN to BS program.
