“My primary reason for choosing Curry was convenience. Speaking practically, returning to school needed to be ‘doable’ for me. Curry offers a wide variety of courses at times that are suitable to working parents and that worked for me.”

RN - BS Nursing Program (for Registered Nurses)
Build on the nursing practice skills you've acquired as a registered nurse (RN) when you enroll in the RN - BS Nursing degree program. Take advantage of our highly respected RN - BS curriculum, study with your peers at our campuses in Milton and Plymouth, expand your ability to act as a change agent and patient advocate, and position yourself for career advancement and further professional education.
Set your own pace. You can complete Curry's RN - BS Nursing program in as little as three semesters or take classes part-time over two or three years. In recognition of your work experience, your RN license automatically awards you 34 transfer credits. Our generous transfer credit policy accepts up to 90 credits, including science classes, no matter how long ago you completed the courses.
Prepare to combine your new leadership and management skills with solid nursing practice foundations in career settings that may include traditional acute-care hospitals, long-term care facilities, rehabilitation centers and outpatient clinics, as well as community health, education and business.
