The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree is for students who want to make a difference in the lives of patients through compassionate, patient-focused care. A values-based curriculum teaches students to be sensitive to the unique needs of different patients. State-of-the-art simulation labs and competitive clinicals at some of the best hospitals in the world help prepare our graduates to become knowledgeable, empathetic professionals.
Students interested in the Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree and who meet certain criteria may be directly accepted into the major as first-year students.
Students who do not meet the direct-accept criteria but are admitted to Regis College have the option of pursuing the first-year nursing curriculum and be evaluated for acceptance by nursing faculty at the end of the first semester of sophomore year.
To be considered for the nursing major, students must have a minimum 3.0 GPA and no courses below 2.0 (C). Students must earn a B- (2.7) in all NU courses. Once a student matriculates into the nursing major, an overall GPA of 2.7 and a 2.7 (B minus) grade in all nursing courses must be maintained.
Undergraduate students already enrolled in another major at Regis College, including satellite campuses, who wish to change their major to nursing are subject to all transfer policies currently in place for external transfer students applying for admission into the Regis nursing program, including the need for SATs (math 530, critical reading 27/40) or ACTs (composite score of 21) and interview with the Nursing Transfer Advisor, as outlined in the internal transfer process below.
Internal applicants will first meet with Regis Advising to complete the transfer application form for admission to the undergraduate nursing program. Regis Advising will contact the Office of Admission for documents needed to confirm or add to information on transfer application, completing an initial review of the form to ensure the applicant meets the minimum criteria for admission into the Regis nursing program. Regis Advising will forward the Internal Transfer form to the Nursing Transfer Advisor who will schedule a meeting with the student to take place within two weeks of receipt of application.
I worked at Newton-Wellesley Hospital during my junior year which led to a summer job working as a patient care assistant. These experiences helped me so much in preparing for my senior year, when I worked in pediatric and maternity at Brigham and Women's and Mass General Hospital.Justine Murphy '17
