Future nurses

Labouré is training the next generation of healthcare workers - these are the men and women who will one day care for us. 

Our Impact

The Boston area needs more skilled, highly trained, and compassionate healthcare professionals. We are up to the task.

Each year, Labouré graduates the largest number of nurses in Massachusetts. Our students are local adults who are resilient, mature, and compassionate. They have experienced life - many have been called to become a nurse through tragedy or personal experience. They are rooted in our Boston communities and they stay to serve our communities.

 These are the men and women who will one day care for us.

Transforming lives

A Labouré education is a pathway to financial security for the majority of our students. A healthcare degree breaks the cycle of poverty and changes the trajectory of their lives, and the lives of their children. 

Over the span of their careers, Labouré graduates go on to care for thousands of patients in the communities they serve. 

In truth, the impact of our graduates is limitless.

Transformative education

When you support our students, you foster the professional advancement, economic independence, and personal empowerment of women and men ready to go to work building a healthier future. 

Our students enter Labouré juggling family responsibilities and school while trying to make ends meet. In contrast, a Boston-area nurse earns an average salary of $68,500 - a family-sustaining wage that can make all the difference for our graduates.
