Bachelor of Science in Nursing — Accelerated

Location: Boston
Start Term: Fall

As a registered nurse, you will work directly with patients, providing expert care, support and compassion. This program builds on a strong foundation in the liberal arts and sciences and gives you the knowledge, skills, competencies, and values required to practice as a professional nurse.

During the accelerated time frame of 32 consecutive months, you’ll have the opportunity to work alongside professional experts through clinical experiences in our onsite simulation and patient assessment laboratories, and through rotations in prestigious Boston area medical facilities. The year-round program gives you the benefit of an immersive education and prepares you for your career faster. When you graduate, you’ll be eligible to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). And you’ll be fully prepared to enter and succeed in a rapidly changing healthcare environment.
