Nursing is both an art and a science. The nursing program includes courses in the liberal arts, the sciences and nursing. The curriculum prepares graduates to accept responsibility for the care of clients and families in a variety of health care settings, to function in beginning leadership roles, and to be consumers of and participants in nursing research. Students are provided with the foundation for graduate study in nursing.  Upon completion of the program, graduates will be fully prepared to take the National Council Licensing Examination in Nursing for Registered Nurses (NCLEX), a required credential for nursing practice in Massachusetts and the United States as a whole. 

Why study the Nursing program from Westfield State University

Small program size. In recognition of the growing health care needs of an aging population, the nursing curriculum places special emphasis on care of the older adult. A one-year formal student-to-student mentorship program where incoming freshman students are paired with an upper classman nursing student, to help transition into the program and help get the incoming student connected with other nursing students and activities on campus. A patient Simulation Laboratory with video and voice recording equipment.  Capstone Preceptorship program where students work at a health care organization during their last semester under the supervision of a registered nurse.
