ADN Program Details
Accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC), the Associate Degree Nursing program prepares the student for the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). Students acquire nursing skills for the beginning level of practice and graduate with the competencies to assume the role of a registered nurse in the direct care of clients with health needs and problems across the continuum of care throughout the life span.
Approved by the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Nursing, the nursing and liberal arts curriculum provides a sound, progressive, quality education. Learning takes place within a structured, but flexible setting under the guidance of the nursing faculty and includes experience in a variety of clinical affiliations. Above all, the student is prepared to enter the nursing profession as a competent caring individual and contributing community citizen.
BSN Program Details
Graduates from the RN to BSN program acquire a deeper and broader level of assessment, communication, critical thinking and technical skills. The program provides students with the theory and competencies for professional practice, 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 a two-year completion program that provides the necessary foundation for professional practice. During the final two semesters the student has the opportunity to apply this knowledge in practicum experiences in a variety of clinical settings. In addition, the RN to BSN program offers the nurse the opportunity to explore a range of nursing electives.
This program is offered in a format which allows students to continue working full-time while attending classes on a full-time or part-time basis.
