About the School of Nursing

The need for well-educated, highly-skilled nurses has never been greater. The Institute of Medicine (IOM) through its “Quality Chasm” series in the late ‘90s increased the awareness of the key role that nurses play in patient safety and quality improvement. Thus, today there is an unprecedented demand for professional and advance practice nurses.

Based on our long and rich history of nursing education at Northeastern, we are well positioned to prepare you for positions of responsibility in all areas of healthcare. Our programs range from undergraduate through graduate degrees, as well as continuing education conferences, presentations, and workshops for nurses in administrative, clinical, educational and research positions. Students who graduate from an accredited program are eligible for licensure.

There is no better time or place to prepare for these accomplishments than at the School of Nursing within Bouvé College of Health Sciences. Come explore our website, contact us with questions, and let us arrange a visit for you.
