Does Curry College admit transfer students into the nursing program?

A:   Yes. The number of accepted transfer nursing students varies each year, depending on the number of spaces available in the program.  Applicants are accepted on the merit of their coursework and not on the timing of when their application is received.

What prerequisite courses are needed to apply?

You need to complete these three courses before transferring. You must earn a grade of C+ or higher the first time you complete the course:

  • Anatomy and Physiology I (4 credits)
  • Anatomy and Physiology II (4 credits)
  • Chemistry with Lab (4 credits)

Each course must be taken at an accredited college or university. Applicants who do not achieve a grade of C+ the first time they take the class will not be considered for admission to the nursing program.

What is the application deadline for the fall semester?

July 1 is the deadline for the fall semester. Although the admissions office operates on a rolling admission basis for all other programs, we do not consider transfer nursing applications until the deadline passes. Applicants are considered strictly on the merits of their application.

When will I get a decision on my application?

We learn how many spaces are available in this program shortly before the July 1 application deadline; if space is available, we make admission decisions at that point.

If admitted, how long will it take for me to finish this program?

Due to clinical rotations and nursing course sequences, the traditional nursing program takes at least three years to finish, regardless of the number of credits previously completed.

Can I start the program in the spring semester?

No, nursing students are only accepted for the fall semester. There is no spring semester option for prospective nursing students.

May I attend part-time?

No. The nursing program is only offered as a full-time, traditional day program.

Can I start in another major and then transfer into the nursing major after I enroll at Curry?

No. Students who start at Curry in another major, or are undecided, may not transfer into the nursing program. Applicants must be accepted directly into the nursing program.

English is not my first language. Do I need to submit standardized test scores?

Yes. A student whose first language is not English must submit a TOEFL with a minimum score of 550 (paper test), 213 (computer test) or 80 (internet test). There will be no exceptions to this policy, even if applicants have successfully completed an ESL course.

Does Curry College require the TEAS exam?

No. Curry College does not require transfer nursing applicants to submit the results of the TEAS exam.

Where do nursing students perform their clinical rotations?

Nursing students complete their clinical rotations at all major teaching hospitals as well as in other health care facilities in Boston and the surrounding area. 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.

What if I already have my RN license?

If you already have your RN license and are looking to complete a Bachelor of Science degree, please contact the Division of Continuing Education at Curry College at (617) 333-2364 to learn more about the RN to BS program.

What if I already have a bachelor's degree but am looking to go back for a second degree in nursing?

If you already have a bachelor's degree, you should consider the Accelerated Nursing Program (ACCEL), a 16-month program offered through the Division of Continuing Education at Curry College.

If you’re looking to pursue a career in criminal justice, you can start your studies at Massasoit Community College and finish them at Curry.
