Welcome to Delaware State University Department of Nursing. The Department of Nursing faculty and staff are committed to provide educational opportunities for students of diverse backgrounds and preparing high quality graduate nurses who are ready to practice in today’s challenging health-care environment.  

The competitive program is grounded in academic excellence and prepares students to become professional nurses. Following the successful completion of the program, graduates will receive a Bachelor of Science degree, with a major in Nursing, and will be eligible to take the registered nurse licensure examination (NCLEX-RN)  administered by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing.

The nursing curriculum consists of four (4) academic years. The student will take two years of pre-professional courses and apply for the professional phase of the nursing major during their sophomore year.  Professional phase nursing courses include both nursing theory and related laboratory and clinical study.  A variety of healthcare agencies including hospitals, long term care facilities, clinics, and community health settings, provide opportunities for clinical study in the tri state area.   Clinical laboratory practice is also provided in a state of the art simulation laboratory.

The Nursing Program has full approval status from the Delaware Board of Nursing

The Nursing Program is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing  and is on warning until reaccreditation visit scheduled for Spring 2017.
