Nursing Mandatory Professional Licensure Disclosure


Let us take the mystery out of the enrollment process.


Nursing Mandatory Professional Licensure Disclosure

New York State prides itself in the high quality of its licensed and certified professionals.  For the protection of its citizens, each license and certificate has requirements that individuals must meet in order to be licensed or certified in New York State.  SUNY’s academic programs leading to licensure or certification are carefully designed to meet and exceed these State requirements. This is a role SUNY plays in protecting the public.  Other states frequently have their own requirements, so if your goal is to practice in another state, this disclosure will help you check to see what that state requires.

Per U.S. Federal Regulations, §668.43 (2019 Rule), and in compliance with the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (SARA) Manual version 19.2, SUNY Fulton-Montgomery Community College (FMCC) provides the following disclosure related to the educational requirements for professional licensure and certification.[1]

This Disclosure is strictly limited to the SUNY FMCC’s determination of whether its educational program, Associate in Applied Science (AAS) in Nursing, that if successfully completed, would be sufficient to meet the educational licensure or certification requirements in a State for registered professional nursing.[2] SUNY FMCC cannot provide verification of an individual’s ability to meet licensure or certification requirements unrelated to its educational programming.  Such individual determinations are made by state licensing boards and are fact-specific determinations.

This disclosure does not provide any guarantee that any particular state licensure or certification entity will approve or deny your application. Furthermore, this disclosure does not account for changes in state law or regulation that may affect your application for licensure and occur after this disclosure has been made. Enrolled students and prospective students are strongly encouraged to contact their State’s licensure entity using the links provided to review all licensure and certification requirements imposed by their state(s) of choice.

SUNY FMCC has designed an educational program curriculum for an AAS in Nursing that if successfully completed is sufficient to meet the licensure and certification requirements for a registered professional nurse in the following states[3]:

SUNY FMCC has designed an educational program curriculum for an AAS in Nursing, and currently has made no determination that the curriculum is insufficient to meet the licensure and certification requirements for registered professional nursing in any of the 50 states and territories.

After making all reasonable efforts, SUNY FMCC cannot determine whether its educational program curriculum for an AAS in Nursing that if successfully completed, is sufficient to meet the licensure and certification requirements for advanced practice nursing in the following states[4]:

[1] The terms related to registered professional nursing, including licensure and certification, among others, vary by state and your state may use different terms.

[2] This determination is based on the educational and curricular requirements of each state for licensure (i.e., excluding any special, temporary licensure that may be granted) and does not imply that other requirements for licensure do not exist or have been determined to have been met by this program or that any necessary approvals for clinical placements have been secured at the time of enrollment. An unencumbered RN license in the state of intended practice is a requirement of entry and continuation in the program. Each student should verify their particular situation with their intended state’s licensing entity.

[3] If the State does not regulate/license for registered professional nursing, SUNY FMCC’s program has been determined to be sufficient for these purposes.

[4] This does not mean the educational program will not ultimately be approved by the state entity, or that licensure could not result from attending this program.
