New York RN Programs

Becoming an RN in New York

In order to becoming licensed as an RN in New York State, one must be at least 18 years old and have a high school diploma or GED. He or she must also have completed an approved nursing education program. The applicant's education must:

  • Include NY training on identifying and reporting child abuse.
  • Have been at least a 2 year program in general professional nursing.
  • Have included approved infection control and barrier training

One who graduated from a foreign nursing school must also submit a credential evaluation report from the Commission on Graduates of Foreign Nursing Schools (CGFNS).

In order to become licensed by examination, one must submit an application to the state and pass the NCLEX. The individual must also have the nursing education program verify his or her education to the New York State Education Department. A practice permit may be granted to those who have never taken the NCLEX.

There is a fee of $143 for licensure and an additional $35 for permit. Foreign graduates must pass the TOEFL to obtain a permit.

One who is licensed in another state can become licensed by endorsement in New York. He or she must submit verification of the current license.

Why Online RN Classes?

Being a registered nurse is a great career. But many working adults who want to become an registered nurse have an extremely busy schedule - balancing a full-time job, family commitments and other personal responsibilities. The traditional classroom setting offered by most local nursing schools doesn't offer the same flexibility as taking their RN classes online.

Online nursing programs allow each student to fit their education into his or her already busy schedule. Online students can participate in "classroom" discussions and take exams when it's convenient for them. RN nursing students can access their virtual classroom 24 hours per day / seven days per week.

Also, taking RN courses online saves students even more time, as online students don't need to commute to school. Online schools enable busy people to get an RN degree, without interfering with their current professional and personal life.
