Nursing Students  
  • Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN)
    The Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) Program at MassBay is designed to prepare students for a career in nursing as a Registered Nurse (RN). After completion of the required coursework, students will be eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN).

  • Practical Nursing (PN) Program
    Practical nurses provide nursing care for medical surgical patients in the hospital/or skilled nursing facility.

    Nurse Assistants perform vital hygiene and daily living functions of patients in their care. They are also responsible for positioning and transporting patients, obtaining vital signs, maintaining a clean and safe living environment, and for monitoring the overall health and safety of their patients. In just 8 weekends, MassBay prepares Nurse Assistant Training students for the Red Cross Nurse Aide Competency Evaluation (NACE) test, an important step in finding employment in the field.
