Welcome to Salem State University's School of Nursing. Whether you are right out of high school, looking for a career change, or wish to advance your current career position, the School of Nursing offers a program to meet your goals.
Our Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) is a four-year baccalaureate program that applies a mix of academic and practical education. Upon successfully completing this program, you will earn your bachelor’s degree and be eligible to sit for the NCLEX-RN exam. And if you are a current RN or LPN, we have a baccalaureate program specifically for you. Follow the links to learn more about them.
We also offer several graduate programs. The Master of Science in Nursing (MSN), for registered nurses with a bachelor's degree, offers study in current and developing theory, preparation for leadership roles in nursing, a foundation for doctoral studies, and more.
Thinking about a career change? If you have a bachelor's degree in another discipline and wish to move into the nursing field, the Direct Entry MSN is an accelerated program that, if successfully completed, results in your eligibility to sit for the RN exam and pursue your MSN.
