    Candidates are encouraged to complete the application  online.

  2. Official Transcripts

    Candidates must submit the official transcripts from all regionally accredited academic institutions attended and, if applicable, an official copy of standardized test scores and/or military credit (DD-214). American Council on Education approved materials (or equivalent, which will be verified by the appropriate agency) will be reviewed for transfer credit as appropriate.

  3. Current Résumé

    Candidates must submit a one-page (minimum) résumé summarizing all professional work experience and previous education.

  4. Nursing License

    Candidates must provide proof of current Massachusetts RN License from  www.mass.gov/dph/boards/rn or eligibility to apply for reciprocity based on other U.S. State licensure. To help facilitate furthering your education,  as a result of a possible delay in taking your NCLEX-RN exam, we will conditionally accept students in the RN-BSN program without the RN License.
