Day Option

There are two full-time day courses of study leading to an Associate in Science Degree and eligibility to take the NCLEX-RN. Academically qualified generic students are admitted annually to the day option. The course of study is two years. LPN’s are admitted annually to the second year by advanced placement. Credit is given for Nursing I, II, and III. To receive advanced placement the LPN must have graduated from an approved school of practical nursing, hold a current license to practice practical nursing in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and have successfully completed the required prerequisite fist year courses. LPN Graduates of Southeastern Regional, Blue Hills Technical, and Bristol Plymouth Technical School may be give transfer credit for the course of Human Growth and Development.

LPNs admitted to the day option are required to take a transition course prior to admission into Nursing IV. The Transition course is offered during the summer.

Evening Option

There are two part-time evening cohort courses of study. These options mirror the day options, but are designed to provide a longer period of study time for those who value and desire the RN role. Both courses of study lead to an Associate of Science Degree and eligibility to take the NCLEX-RN.

The generic cohort option is for three years (six semesters). The LPN cohort option lasts for three semesters. LPN’s receive advanced placement if they graduated from an approved school of practical nursing, hold a current license to practice practical nursing in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and have successfully completed the required courses of the first three semesters. They receive credit for Nursing I, II, and III. LPN Graduates of Southeastern Regional, Blue Hills Technical, and Bristol Plymouth technical may be given transfer credit for the course of Human Growth and Development.

The evening nursing option does not receive state funding; therefore, all evening nursing courses must be self-supporting. The cost/credit of the evening nursing courses is approved by Massasoit’s Board of Trustees and subject to change.
