» Admission Requirements
» Additional Requirements

The RN to BSN program is a two-year degree completion program that provides a well-delineated and broad knowledge base for contemporary nursing practice and graduate study in nursing. The curriculum is designed to focus on the synthesis and application of knowledge and research from nursing, social and natural sciences, and the humanities.

During the course of study, students will apply knowledge and skills in a variety of clinical settings. The inclusion of nursing elective courses allows the student to increase their understanding of multiple nursing practice areas. The program is offered in a format which allows students to work full-time if desired.  Admission to this program requires a valid Massachusetts RN license.

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