Application due 12/1


Northeastern's On Campus Direct Entry Nursing program allows you to use the degree and experience that you already have and leverage it into a BSN and Master's degree in Nursing.

Students enter the program with an undergraduate non-nursing degree and completion of program prerequisites. Then students continue their education to become a Masters-prepared Advanced Practice Nurse in an area of specialization.

Course prerequisites and program information can be found in Frequently Asked Questions.


Sixteen months of nursing-specific courses prepare you to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN). A full-time registered nurse work experience is then required for 6 to 9 months. You retain your student status for your loan and insurance purposes enrolled in this Transition to Practice. This segment is followed by advanced courses in a speciality track and MS degree.

Refer to the current pre-licensure curriculum.

The School of Nursing has a network of clinical affiliations at major teaching and community hospitals, and health centers including:

The Northeastern University Health and Wellness Van provides experiences in health care and education to citzens in the community.
