“I actually visited Curry three times before I made my decision. I loved everything about it, including the location and sense of community I got when I stepped on campus. It just felt like it would be easy to fit right in.”

- Nursing Curriculum
The traditional nursing curriculum is a four-year program where you 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).
The following policies apply to students in the Nursing Program:
1. First year students must complete BIOL 1075, 1175, 1085, 1185, CHEM 1001 and CHEM 1002 with a grade of "C" on the first attempt by the end of the Spring semester. Failure to meet this grade requirement will result in removal from the Nursing major.
2. Additional policies and information relating to nursing students are in the course syllabi and the Baccalaureate Nursing Program Policy and Information Handbook.
3. The Nursing Division reserves the right to alter policies and/or curriculum at any time.

"I chose to transfer to Curry because I'd attended a large public university where my lecture classes ranged from 300-400 students. When I came to Curry I noticed how small the classes were, and that was really important to me," says Nursing major Taylor Pacheco.
Dr. Susan LaRocco originally joined Curry College as a temporary faculty member in the Division of Nursing with the notion that she would be teaching at Curry for only a year. But after the initial honeymoon period ended, Dr. LaRocco had fallen in love with the College...and she quickly found that the feeling was mutual.
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, a Psych Nurse at Westwood Lodge Hospital and Correctional Nurse at Massachusetts Correctional Institution explains the advantages of choosing the Curry Nursing program, "I was directly accepted into the Curry Nursing program...I received better scholarships from Curry...and I got to start my clinical rotations during sophomore year, so I gained real world experience right off the bat."
The Sigma Theta Tau Honor Society (Theta at Large) at Curry College is active in supporting local nursing scholars through our ongoing research and academic awards program.
