After being in the Air Force reserves, I came out of retirement to pursue further education. I would like to teach, and the Post Master's work supports that. Nursing truly is a life-long opportunity, both in what you want to do and the fact that you can take your career anywhere in the country.

Whether or not you're enrolled in the College of Nursing, SUNY Upstate offers a variety of accredited, continuing nursing education courses for interested nurses. From half day to weekend-long conferences, nurses have the opportunity to enhance or learn new skills.

Continuing education courses are taught by a range of skilled faculty from across the region.  We partner with service line departments on our campus-such as Pediatrics or the AIDS center-to provide accredited specialty conferences. Courses such as Children at Risk, NP Review Course, Clinical Skills Day and Post Master's Certificate programs are repeated regularly because of popular interest.


Many continuing education programs are awarded with contact hours.

The SUNY Upstate Medical University Institute for Continuing Nursing Education is an approved provider of continuing nursing education by the New Jersey State Nurses Association, an accredited approver by the American Nurses™ Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation.

It has been assigned Provider Code NYP260-6/30/2017.
