Assumption announces nurses degree program

Assumption College announced that it has received Pre-requisite approval from the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Nursing for a new direct-admission Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) to prepare students to practice high quality, patient-centered professional nursing care.

“The Assumption College Bachelor of Science in Nursing program prepares graduates to provide compassionate and effective professional nursing care to individuals, families, and communities in accordance with ethical healthcare practices. Academic excellence, exemplary clinical skills, commitment to service, and principled leadership will be hallmarks of the program and its students. The curriculum features the traditional Catholic commitment to reverence for human life and the dignity of every human person. Graduates will advance health through excellence in nursing practice, teaching, and service,” said the College’s Provost Louise Carroll-Keeley, Ph.D.

The program is pending approval from the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE), which is expected by the end of this year.

Assumption’s Nurse Degree Program

The base of Assumption’s curriculum is a rigorous program of foundational and nursing courses coupled with clinical education in acute-care, community-based, and simulation environments that provide a comprehensive education to promote the health of individuals, families, and communities across the globe.

Students who pursue a degree in nursing at Assumption are provided a strong liberal arts education that will allow for well-reasoned decision-making; engagement in critical thinking; effective communication; and the ability to make ethical decisions that respect the fundamental dignity of every human person.

Assumption's Nursing Program faculty will be committed to educating nurses with the skills to meet the diverse health needs and improve the health outcomes of their communities.

The program will prepare generalists with an innovative and comprehensive curriculum that will enable them to thrive in a variety of settings, assisting individuals, families, and communities to attain, retain, or regain optimal health throughout their lifespans.

Applying for the Program

Students interested in the nursing profession are admitted to the Assumption College BSN Program through direct admission.
