University of Connecticut-Stamford
The University of Connecticut Stamford campus was established in 1952, a year after UConn began offering extension courses at a former high school in Stamford. The original Stamford campus offered just five courses and now offers thirteen undergraduate degree programs, including an accelerated pre-licensure program for nursing students. The campus also just recently opened its first permanent residence hall, providing accommodations for 290 students. The primary focus of the campus is business and technology, and they work closely with several Fortune 500 companies. However, they do provide a limited selection of courses in other fields, including history, psychology, and human development.
The University of Connecticut Stamford only offers one nursing program for students wanting to start a career in nursing. The CEIN/BS program offers students an accelerated, one-year program to earn a BSN and a post-baccalaureate certificate. Students must already have a baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution. The program is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) and allows students to earn an APRN certificate upon completion of the program. The program is offered through the UConn School of Nursing, which has offered nursing programs for over 50 years. Additional nursing degrees are offered through the other University of Connecticut campuses.
