Welcome!

The Salem State University School of Nursing helps to prepare nurses and future nurses to meet the many challenges of today’s complex healthcare environment. The faculty and staff from the school of nursing are committed to our students and strongly encourage and support diversity. 

Whether you are entering the program directly from high school, looking for a career change or wish to advance in your career, the School of Nursing at Salem State University offers a program specifically designed for you.

Salem State University offers both graduate and undergraduate program options.   

The bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) program is for high school graduates with no nursing background. The licensed practical nurse to bachelor of science in nursing (LPN-BSN) program is for licensed practical nurses, and the registered nurse to bachelor of science in nursing program is for registered nurses with an associate degree or diploma in nursing. 

If you already have a four year degree in another discipline, then you may be eligible for entry into our 16 month accelerated second degree bachelor of science in nursing (ABSN) program. 

The graduate program master of science in nursing (MSN) offers three program concentrations: nursing education, nursing leadership in health systems, and adult gerontology primary care nurse practitioner. We also offer a certificate in nursing education.

The bachelor of science in nursing and master of science in nursing programs at Salem State University are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.

All undergraduate nursing programs have full approval from the Massachusetts Board of Registered Nursing.
