Students With Associate Degrees in Nursing
All potential RN candidates whose highest degree in nursing is an associate’s degree and who also hold a BS degree in another field will be required to take a community health course in order to be enrolled into the Yale School of Nursing’s master’s degree program. An e-learn course that meets the objectives for N513, Community Health Nursing and Public Health, such as the one offered by the New York State Nurses Association Continuing Education, is acceptable. In addition to providing proof of community health content, the applicant will have to complete a community health related project that can be part of course work prior to graduation. The nature and extent of this project will be co-determined with the respective specialty coordinator. If you are interested in taking the course offered by the New York State Nurses Association Continuing Education, please contact the Office of Student Life and Belonging in order to gain access.
