Welcome to the Nursing Program

Congratulations on your acceptance and decision to attend the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program at MCPHS. We’re excited that you’ll be joining us soon. Before the program begins there are some next steps you’ll need to take to get ready. On this page you will find important information and forms that you will need to begin your studies. We will continue to post program specific information here so please bookmark this page and visit it often.

Next steps for incoming BSN students.

White coats and name tags will be ordered for each student by the Nursing department. The order form will be available in early summer.

Any questions can be directed to the Nursing department at 508.373.5685.

You are required to purchase official MCPHS scrubs from Trippi's Uniforms for use during the nursing program. These scrubs will include the MCPHS logo and your first name and last initial. These will be worn for all labs and clinical experiences and will identify you as an MCPHS student. We recommend that each student purchase two sets of scrubs (tops and bottoms) and one warm-up jacket.

Please go to the Trippi's store at your earliest convenience to order your scrubs. All orders must be submitted by July 31, 2020 in order to ensure that your scrubs are delivered to the School of Nursing in time for your first lab day. Note that the School of Nursing is not affiliated with Trippi's Uniforms.
