Eastern's New Science Building

In September, 2008 the doors opened to a state-of the-art, 174,000 square-foot Science Building. The facility houses all of Eastern's science and mathematics departments, which had previously been scattered across seven separate buildings. It sports a 132-seat lecture hall, sophisticated audio-visual systems; a state-of-the-art greenhouse; and high tech laboratories. In addition, the building has been built to U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) certification standards.

Getting Started with Nursing

Eastern Connecticut State University offers strong science programs and coursework that, together with the liberal arts emphasis of all Eastern programs, constitute ideal preparation for a future career in nursing. While Eastern doesn’t offer a specific nursing major or degree, we do offer special collaborative options with Southern Connecticut State University and the University of Connecticut to pursue a post baccalaureate nursing program. A limited number of reserved seats are available each year for Eastern graduates in the accelerated nursing programs at SCSU and UConn. Specific prerequisites and requirements must be met for each program in order to qualify for these reserved seats:

This full-time program allows qualified individuals to complete their undergraduate nursing coursework and BSN degree requirements in 12 consecutive months. Graduates are then eligible to take the national RN licensure exam. A new program begins in August of each year at the New Haven campus of SCSU.
