Earn your bachelor's degree at Regis North at NECC in Lawrence
At the Regis satellite campus at Northern Essex Community College in Lawrence, Massachusetts, students with an associate’s degree in nursing and have passed the NCLEX, can pursue a bachelor of science in nursing and students with an associate's degree in any discipline can pursue a bachelor of arts in public health.
Our bachelor of science in nursing program offers valuable hands-on training in a classroom setting, student-to-student support, and personal support from faculty and advisors. A BSN degree prepares nurses for better employment opportunities and professional satisfaction. The highly-skilled care a BSN prepared nurse provides has been shown to dramatically improve patient recovery rates.
Public health is one of the fastest growing fields in the U.S. and offers a variety of career opportunities in the government sector, healthcare settings, non-profit community agencies, industry, schools, research centers and more. Public health professionals serve to protect or improve the health of a population or community. Public health is about prevention, promotion, protection, and preparedness. Public health complements healthcare by developing and implementing health educational programs and regulating health systems, identifying and monitoring diseases, developing public policy, and conducting research.
