Undergraduate Programs


The School of Nursing at Salem State University offers three undergraduate programs to prepare you for licensure, employment, career advancement, and advanced education.

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) is a four-year baccalaureate program. Upon completion, you will earn your BSN degree and be eligible to sit for the NCLEX-RN exam.

The LPN to BSN affords licensed practical nurses (LPN) the flexibility of earning a bachelor's degree. Science courses and core requirements may be taken on a part-time basis. Nursing courses must be taken in the day program.  At the completion of the program you will be eligible to sit for the NCLEX-RN exam.

The RN to BSN provides current registered nurses the opportunity to earn their bachelor's degree on a part-time basis in the evening. Registered nurses receive course credit for their RN licensure.

The Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (ABSN) is designed for those individuals who have a bachelor’s degree in a non-nursing academic program and wish to pursue a career in nursing.
