    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.

    upon the successful attainment of the
    appropriate licensure requirements.
