Welcome to the SUNY Delhi School of Nursing. This is an exciting and interesting time to be in nursing. The critical shortage of both practitioners and educators is leading to multiple options for those interested in the profession. Jobs are available nationwide in a wide range of settings, typically at excellent salaries, with opportunities for growth. At SUNY Delhi, we are preparing students who will become leaders in the profession, contributing to the advancement of health care and the profession itself.
