University of Connecticut-Avery Point

Groton, CT 06340

The University of Connecticut – Avery Point campus was founded in 1967 as a public research university. Students can enjoy a small college setting while studying at state-of-the-art academic facilities. The college is located on 72-acres of coastal land, giving students convenient access to the ocean. The campus includes 28 buildings, including several historic buildings. However, the university also received funds for a $50 million renovation project to improve several academic buildings on the campus. They also offer a low student to faculty ratio, ensuring that every student receives the attention of the professors and instructors.  

Each semester, over 7,000 students enroll in the various graduate and undergraduate programs available at UConn Avery Point, including the nursing program. Students may enroll in the CEIN/BS program, which is currently the only nursing program offered at the Avery Point Campus. Traditional BSN and MSN programs are available at the UConn Storrs campus. Students who already have a bachelor’s degree in a non-nursing field may apply for this program to earn a BSN and a post-baccalaureate certificate. The program is designed to be completed within 12 months with full-time study. Upon completion of the program, students are eligible to take the registered nurse licensing exam.
