Hands-on skills

You'll have plenty of time to practice in our skills lab and simulation lab before interacting with real patients during your clinical placement.

Nursing Options

Nursing offers a rewarding career in caring for others — and there are many pathways to success.

Some nurses choose to enter the healthcare profession through a non-degree certificate program, working as a licensed practical nurse or certified nursing assistant. Others earn associate, bachelor’s, or advanced degrees that allow them to take on more responsibilities and earn higher salaries.

At Labouré, you’ll find flexible options whether you’re new to nursing, a career changer, or a working nurse looking for opportunities to grow:

ASN - associate degree in nursing

An ASN is the minimum degree necessary to practice as a registered nurse. Labouré's program prepares you to earn your RN credentials in just two years, preparing you for entry-level roles. 

The ASN curriculum includes arts and sciences courses online, professional courses and hands-on labs on campus, and clinical hours at local hospitals and health centers throughout Greater Boston.

LPN to RN - advanced placement

If you're a licensed practical nurse, Labouré's accelerated LPN to RN track helps you become a registered nurse in half the time of our ASN program while learning online, on-campus, and at clinical sites. You can earn transfer credit for professional coursework done in your LPN so you can take fewer classes at Labouré. Many students finish their degree in a year or less.

RN to BSN - bachelor's degree in nursing

A bachelor's degree can open doors to more job opportunities in nursing, and at a higher salary. In fact, many hospitals now require a BSN for you to be considered for a job. Labouré's RN to BSN program is designed for working nurses. It's 100% online, flexible and affordable. With seven-week courses and start dates throughout the year, you can finish on your schedule in about 16 months.

Alumni Stories

Isiah Pruitt '20

"We will be the healthcare professionals responsible for caring for our communities."

A Milton native, Pruitt was raised by his aunt - a nursing assistant - and wants to continue in her footsteps. One thing he is grateful for during nursing school is the togetherness of his professors and classmates, whose support helps him focus on his goals.
