The Belanger School of Nursing

The Ellis School of Nursing

The academic and clinical foundation for a successful career

The Belanger School of Nursing prepares men and women for licensure as a Registered Professional Nurse. The program is registered by the New York State Education Department jointly with Schenectady County Community College. This hospital-based school awards an Associate in Science degree in Nursing conferred by the Ellis Medicine Board of Trustees.

The curriculum consists of 42 credits in nursing and 30 college credits spanning four semesters and one summer session. The primary focus of instruction is the care of the hospitalized patient with emphasis on clinical practice.

The Belanger School of Nursing has articulation agreements with S.U.N.Y., Institute of Technology at Utica/Rome, Hartwick College, The Sage Colleges, Southern Vermont College, Empire State College, Excelsior College, Maria College, Walden University, S.U.N.Y. Delhi, S.U.N.Y. at Plattsburgh, and Grand Canyon University. Following graduation from the School of Nursing, a bachelor's degree in nursing may be obtained after two years of full time study.

Many graduates of the School of Nursing choose to begin their nursing careers at Ellis Medicine. All departments that employ registered nurses welcome new graduates of Ellis Medicine's own nursing school.
