Northeastern University offers several nursing programs in the Boston area. Over the next few weeks, we’ll share the benefits of each program and how each one can prepare you for a successful nursing career.
As patient care becomes more complex and the healthcare industry continues to grow, career opportunities for nurses with bachelor’s and master’s degrees are fast increasing. Studies have proven that highly educated nursing staff contribute to decreased mortality, improved quality outcomes and reduced adverse events.
Our Direct Entry-Hybrid Nursing Program was created to meet the demand for well-educated nurses. It’s a great opportunity for those with a bachelor’s degree to enter the nursing field.
By the end of the program, you’ll obtain a solid foundation in nursing theory and best practices and specialize in Neonatal Nurse Practitioner or Nursing Administration/Leadership and Policy. (More on these specialty areas in the next blog post!) You will also be prepared to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN).
Direct Entry uses a concurrent clinical model. This means you’ll complete nursing classes, lab simulations and onsite clinical training at the same time, allowing you to apply what you learn in the classroom immediately in the field. Our Bouvé College of Health Sciences, School of Nursing has an extensive network of clinical affiliations where students gain hands-on work experience, giving you a leg up when it comes to seeking employment after graduation.
