“I like the simulated patient interaction we practice in the classroom and then apply with real people at fieldwork sites...my professors explain the principles with lots of stories and examples. They use humor to make you feel comfortable, and they’re extremely helpful in every situation.”

The health care field is expected to be one of the top occupations for growth over the next ten years, and you can be a part of it. With small class sizes, a supportive nursing faculty and access to world-renowned teaching hospitals, Curry College will challenge you to work hard and support you to prepare for success.
If you are bright, hard-working and creative; if you love technology and challenging intellectual pursuits, and strive to build personal and professional relationships, then you may want to apply for the competitive and rigorous nursing major at Curry.
Clinical Locations Second to None
Curry College's location in the Boston metropolitan area creates the perfect opportunity for you to experience dynamic, hands-on learning at some of the best medical facilities in the world. Beginning sophomore year, you gain experience in a wide range of urban and suburban institutions as you complete your five semesters of required clinical work including pediatrics, maternity and mental health rotations, and more.
Prepare for a Career in Nursing
In addition to clinical placements, Curry nursing students can gain valuable experience assisting at campus flu clinics, participating in disaster drills at local hospitals and even traveling to China to study and compare American and Chinese nursing techniques. You'll be educated with technology infused throughout your curriculum to prepare for the demands of today's hospitals.
With a degree in nursing, you will be well prepared for a career in acute care, community health, mental health, women's health and much more.
Curry nursing graduates have gone on to succeed in meaningful careers in all of the major Boston hospitals, community hospitals and health organizations and the military, among other places. Recently, one of our alums was elected President of the American Nurses Association.
Nursing as a MAJOR
The traditional nursing curriculum is a four-year program where you can begin taking nursing courses in your sophomore year. Upon completion of your nursing curriculum, you are awarded a Bachelor of Science degree. First-year students, transfer students, licensed practical nurses, and registered nurses are all eligible for admission to the major. Students are awarded a Bachelor of Science degree upon completion of the nursing curriculum (120 credits).
Exceptional, Accessible Faculty
Our nationally and internationally recognized faculty have presented across the country and at educational institutions and conferences in Russia and China. Back at home in Milton, they work closely with you in a small class setting, using technology to prepare you for an ever-evolving field. Our passion is to educate nurses who will practice professional nursing with creativity, compassion and commitment.
Get Started Today!
Each semester, Curry College Nursing students engage with residents of the Simon C. Fireman Residential Community, an independent senior housing complex affiliated with Hebrew SeniorLife, as part of their Nursing of Older Adults course. Structured activities foster mutual respect and regard as students and older adults benefit from discussion, reflection and experiential learning. Students and residents value these enriching intergenerational encounters that promote an enhanced awareness and appreciation for the worth and dignity of each individual.
Amber Soucy '13 applied to several colleges when looking at Nursing programs, but when it came down to making a decision, the choice was clear. "I was directly accepted into the Curry Nursing program...I received better scholarships from Curry...and I would also get to start my clinical rotations during sophomore year, so I would gain that real world experience right off the bat."
Helping people is in Julia Jacobs' blood...literally. She eventually followed in her father's footsteps by becoming both a volunteer firefighter and certified Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) while in high school. It was only logical that when she started looking at colleges, she would pursue a career in a similar field.
"I looked at bigger nursing schools, but I realized the best option for me was a smaller school where professors know who you are. I also wanted a school with ties to Boston, because the city offers some of the best hospitals and clinical sites in the United States." Meet Jay Cobden '14 - Nursing
