    Board of Nursing Professional Licensure Requirements as of July 1, 2020
     
     
    As an applicant to our Practical Nursing Program, you are encouraged to discuss your ability for licensure to work in another state other than Massachusetts. If you intend to practice outside of Massachusetts, you may need to obtain a license in another state, as not all states accept a Massachusetts license. 

    Graduates of our program are qualified to work in the state of Massachusetts upon the successful attainment of the appropriate licensure requirements.

    For more information please contact our Practical Nursing Coordinator, or visit the National Council of State Boards of Nursing website.
