Beginning this fall, Massasoit Community College students who have completed their associate degree in nursing will have the opportunity to earn their bachelor of science in nursing degree through Curry College’s program, now offered at Massasoit’s Brockton campus. All students in the RN-BSN program, which is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, will benefit from 40 years of nursing excellence offered at a competitive tuition rate. A signing ceremony on August 15 in Brockton formally launched the new collaborative partnership.
“The demand for well-trained and educated nurses in Brockton and surrounding communities is at an all-time high, and this educational option with Curry College gives both current students and professionals expanded opportunities for career advancement,” said Massasoit President Dr. Gena Glickman. “We’re extremely proud of our two-year Nurse Education program and the close relationships we’ve forged with our neighbor healthcare providers; this partnership helps cement our commitment to the industry.”
Students will be able to complete the RN-BS program in 19 months by taking just one course each 8-week session. With a mix of on-campus and online hybrid courses, Curry College’s general education requirements are waived for students who have an associate degree. At $375 per credit with no additional course fees, the program is an affordable alternative to other RN-BS programs. Financial aid is available for students who qualify.
“Curry College is very proud of our world-class Nursing programs, which prepare graduates to provide the highest quality of nursing care and to be leaders in their field,” says Curry College President Kenneth K. Quigley, Jr. “We are deeply committed to our mission of educating students to engage in meaningful careers and active citizenship, and we are pleased and proud to provide Massasoit students this opportunity to advance their nursing careers with us.”
Individuals interested in the RN-BS at Massasoit scheduled to begin August 27 can visit Curry.edu/RNBS to apply. Students will need to complete a Curry College undergraduate application for admission, and provide a copy of a current, non-restricted Massachusetts RN License to begin this fall. Students may start the RN-BS program before passing the NCLEX-RN exam.
