Nursing at UMA

Ideally situated in the capital region of the beautiful State of Maine, the University of Maine at Augusta’s excellent nursing program is available to both traditional and non-traditional learners and is responsive to the needs of the citizens of Maine. UMA’s nursing faculty is committed to providing exemplary educational programs, which are delivered using live classroom, on-line and blended formats.


UMA offers the following three programs in nursing:

New: Bachelor of Science in Nursing

UMA, in partnership with the University of Maine at Fort Kent, is pleased offer a new four-year Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN). The BSN is rapidly becoming the preferred educational credential for Registered Nurses, and we are delighted to help students earn this credential in the Augusta region. In this program, students register through UMA for classes in the first year and through Fort Kent for classes the following three years.  All courses and clinical learning experiences are offered and taught in the Augusta area or offered online, so no one need to travel to Fort Kent for this program.  Students graduate with a University of Maine at Fort Kent degree.
