College of Nursing Admissions

At the College of Nursing, we're training a generation of nurses who look like the communities they serve.

At Downstate, nearly 70 percent of our students are members of minority groups, far higher than the national average. In Brooklyn, one of the most diverse communities in the nation, our commitment goes a long way to changing the face of the profession.

Each of our degree programs give you the tools to provide better, more equitable care to your community.

Downstate programs include:

  • BS degrees (Accelerated BS in nursing, RN-BS in nursing)
  • MS degrees (Family nurse practitioner, Women's health nurse practitioner Nursing education)
  • DNP degrees (Family nurse practitioner, Women's health nurse practitioner)
