Labouré College of Healthcare is a small, independent, private college with a mission to provide exceptional healthcare education to a diverse group of students.
At Labouré, we specialize in nursing and healthcare education. We have a proud tradition of educating nurses and healthcare professionals in Massachusetts for over 125 years!
Some of our programs are offered online, some are on-campus, and some are a combination of both. Some of our programs are designed for healthcare professionals and some are open to career changes or high school students looking to take their first step into healthcare. Whatever your needs, there is a program that is right for you.
She understood the pressure that we were under, and that's invaluable.
“I like that you go at your own pace; you can take a semester off to work if you needed to. I took summer classes, and that speeds it up... it helps to pace yourself better if you have to work or if you have a child.”
Labouré students are always the strongest, clinically.
“Even kids I've talked to that go to big name schools in Massachusetts are like, 'Wow, you really get to spend that much time in hospitals?' It's great to get that hands-on experience and ... beats just sitting in a classroom."
Preparing students for careers in healthcare is our sole focus. With dedicated faculty, small class sizes, and an innovative curriculum, your opportunities are wide open. Choosing a schedule that fits your life is easy with both day and evening classes and flexible scheduling in online and on-campus formats.
Jobs in healthcare are expected to grow by 19% through 2024, much faster than other industries.
Students learn to use equipment and refine their skills in Simulation Labs and at leading Boston-area healthcare facilities.
Graduate Starting Salary
Though salary varies by program, most starting salaries are over $65,000.
Our dedicated faculty and small class sizes provide students the opportunity to learn and grow in the healthcare industry.
Labouré is accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education (formerly the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Inc.). Each program is also accredited by its own discipline-specific accrediting body.
Student Centered Philosophy
Our faculty and staff are here to make sure all students, both online and on campus, get the support they need to be successful.
We believe that nurses and healthcare professionals should mirror the diverse makeup of their patients. We are most proud of how diverse our student body is in terms of background, age, faith, ethnicity, and income level. We believe this is the best learning environment for healthcare professionals who will treat all kinds of patients throughout their career.

With about 1,000 students, we are able to provide individualized attention to our students.
We understand that you have a life outside of school. Many of our students work, raise children, or care for elderly parents while students at Labouré.
At Labouré, I learned so much and gained the skills that I could go out into the workforce and be confident and be successful.
“Labouré makes it very easy to take online classes, but you still have the interaction in the school as well because you meet about 2 - 3 times per semester."
Through governmental grants and private donations, Labouré College of Healthcare gives under-served students the dignity of supporting themselves and their families in meaningful and necessary occupations.
