The LPN to BSN program gives licensed practical nurses the opportunity to earn a bachelor's degree in nursing (BSN). Applicants must hold a valid Massachusetts LPN nursing license and provide an updated resume to be considered for admission to the program. All general education and support courses must be completed prior to enrolling in any nursing courses.

Graduates will be eligible to take the NCLEX-RN exam to become a registered nurse (RN) and enter professional nursing practice.
