The Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) Program at MassBay is designed to prepare students for a career in nursing as Registered Nurses. Graduates of the program receive an Associate in Science Degree and are eligible to take the National Council Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). The program starts in the Fall semester each year.
The ADN program is designed to meet the educational needs of students pursuing a career in nursing who wish to attend college full-time during the day. Although the curriculum is designed to be completed in two years (four semesters), students may choose to complete non-nursing courses prior to beginning the nursing sequence. Please reference the Health Sciences programs page Nursing Curriculum Sheets for details.
The ADN Program at MassBay is a rigorous curriculum consisting of classroom lectures, laboratory and clinical practicums. Clinical practicums are conducted at a variety of hospitals and health care facilities in the MetroWest areas.
At the completion of the Nursing Program, students will be able to integrate nursing skills with health teaching to provide total client care, utilizing ethical values and legal principles.
The Department of Nursing mission is “to prepare graduates from diverse backgrounds to practice safe and quality nursing care within an evolving healthcare system.” The faculty defines nursing as a therapeutic relationship between patients, families and communities where the focus is on interventions that promote health, wellness and healing as well as the affirmation of life and the recognition of death as a normal process.
