Our baccalaureate degree program prepares students for rewarding careers in professional nursing practice. The following program options are designed for students with different levels of preparation:
• The traditional option is designed for entering freshmen or transfer students.
• The accelerated option, an intensive, 15-month course of study, is geared towards students who already hold a baccalaureate degree in another discipline from an accredited school and wish to pursue a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing.
• The online RN-BS is designed for registered nurses who wish to pursue a baccalaureate degree.
Graduates of our BS program are well prepared for practice in almost any healthcare specialty: acute care, adult, maternal-child, mental health, perioperative, community, rehabilitation, pediatric, geriatric, and long-term care nursing. Often a new graduate will find herself or himself working side by side with colleagues who are alumni of a UMass Boston BS program or who are enrolled in one of our master’s and doctoral programs.
Our alumni are also fully prepared for study at the graduate level, and alumni of the standard and accelerated programs are eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses.
