Grounded in AACN

Our MSN program is based on the American Association of Colleges of Nursing MSN curriculum guidelines. Curry College graduates are prepared for the AACN CNL Certification Examination.

A Long Tradition of Quality Nursing Education

Exceptional Faculty
Curry College has been educating nurses for over 30 years. Our clinical affiliations include major Boston teaching institutions and community agencies which evidences our sterling reputation for providing quality nursing programs.

Our proximity to Boston has allowed us to draw outstanding faculty from the area's world-renowned medical facilities. As a result, our MSN faculty includes both full-time nursing professors and practicing healthcare professionals with impressive credentials.

A "Do-able" Format

One Day a Week: Cohort Study
We know how much you juggle multiple priorities everyday. It was important to us to design a program that would fit comfortably into your busy schedule. Classes are held once a week, during the day, for five semesters. You'll be part of a cohort, which means that you'll study, from start-to-finish, with the same group of professional nurses. Cohort learning groups have proven to be very effective for adult learners; they create a community of professionals who can study together, provide support, discuss common on-the-job problems, and offer networking opportunities.

Greater Emphasis on Clinical Practice

More Hands-On Experience
Extensive clinical immersion allows students to apply skills acquired in the course work and to collaborate with faculty on a focused clinical project concentrating on the leading health indicators, national priority areas, and/or national patient safety goals. The clinical practice component requires 300 hours.

Capstone Course

Putting It All Together
At Curry College, we believe in the importance of synthesizing your learning. Our MSN program culminates in a capstone course. In the capstone seminar, you will discuss and present a clinical project based on a problem you have identified, examined, and explored throughout the curriculum. Many of our MSN graduates have been selected to showcase their capstone clinical projects, locally and at the national level, through poster and /or podium presentations. The capstone enables you to integrate all levels of learning to demonstrate your knowledge and launch your career.
