“I am very pleased to see Regis’s role in graduate education becoming better known in greater Boston,” said Regis president Antoinette M. Hays, PhD, RN. “Not only our Nursing programs like the DNP, a first in this region in 2007, but our Master’s programs in Biomedical Science, Health Administration, Organizational and Professional Communication, Regulatory and Clinical Research Management, the MAT, Heritage Studies and others are contributing to the bond between academe and industry in our region.”
