Becker College has been educating caring and committed women and men to enter the nursing profession since 1982.  Our associate degree nursing program graduates consistently achieve a high first-time NCLEX-RN percentile ranking.  In 2011 and 2012, the ASN program graduates achieved the highest NCLEX pass rate for all associate degree nursing programs in Massachusetts.  In Spring 2013, the ASN program earned a number one program ranking, based upon the 100% first-time NCLEX-RN pass rate for this reporting period.  The 2014 calendar year first-time NCLEX-RN pass rate was 100%.  Whether you are just starting out, looking to change your career, or seek advancement in your nursing career, consider the nursing program at Becker College. Becker College offers pre- and post-licensure nursing education options.

If you are new to the nursing profession, we offer two prelicensure program options:

  1. The two-year associate of science in nursing program (ASN) prepares the student for entry-level nursing practice and the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN).
    Becker College is accredited by the New England Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools.The Associate Degree of Science in Nursing (ASN) program is approved by the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Nursing (BORN) and is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN).

  2. The four-year bachelor of science in nursing program (BSN) combines nursing and liberal arts curricula for a progressive, quality education. It prepares the graduate to assume the role of a registered nurse in direct care patients in acute-care, long-term care, and community or ambulatory-care settings, as well as for entry into graduate level programs.The Prelicensure Bachelor of Science (BSN) program is approved by the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Nursing (BORN).

If you are a practicing RN with an associate’s degree or diploma in nursing seeking to advance your career:

The RN to BSN program enables you to earn a bachelor of science in nursing, typically within two years.  Graduates from the RN to BSN program acquire a deeper and broader level of assessment, communication, critical thinking, and technical skills.  The RN to BSN program provides students with the theory and competencies for professional practice and community health assessment and leadership, as well as research competencies to serve as a foundation for graduate study in nursing.

The RN to BSN program is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN).
