Curry College offers two ways for you to continue your education in nursing: the RN - BS Nursing program and the Accelerated (ACCEL) Nursing program.
The bachelor's degree in nursing at Curry College is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.
RN - BS Nursing Program*
*Admission requires an unrestricted MA RN License
Build on the nursing practice skills you've acquired as a registered nurse (RN) when you enroll in the RN - BS Nursing degree program. Take advantage of our highly respected RN - BS curriculum, study with your peers in the nursing field, expand your ability to act as a change agent and patient advocate, and position yourself for career advancement and further professional education.
Set your own pace. You can complete Curry's RN - BS Nursing program part-time over two or three years. In recognition of your work experience, your RN license automatically awards you 34 transfer credits. Our generous transfer credit policy accepts up to 90 credits, including science classes, no matter how long ago you completed the courses. Complete your degree in either Milton on Plymouth.
Prepare to combine your new leadership and management skills with solid nursing practice foundations in career settings that may include traditional acute-care hospitals, long-term care facilities, rehabilitation centers and outpatient clinics, as well as community health, education and business.
