Fifth Year Nursing Masters
This new program allows students who are currently enrolled in the Endicott College Bachelor's of Science undergraduate nursing program to take graduate courses during their senior year which will fulfill some of the requirements for the Master's Degree. Current juniors will be the first class who will be able to enroll in this program. This will allow Endicott nursing students to obtain a Master's Degree with a concentration in nursing education or nursing administration by studying for one additional year at Endicott.
A student who completes the bachelor of science in nursing degree program at Endicott may reduce the length of the master of science in nursing by fulfilling the following conditions:
- Maintain a 3.3 grade point average by the end of the junior year.
- Complete the application process for the master of science in nursing program at the end of the junior year.
- Successfully complete two master level course requirements in the senior year: NUR 502 Contemporary Issues and Trends in Health Care and NUR 504 Managing Operations, Finance, and Risk. The courses must have a minimum grade of B-.
- In the June and July months following graduation from the B.S. in Nursing degree program, successfully pass the NCLEX exam and obtain an RN license. Submit a nursing license that is current and unrestricted and an official undergraduate transcript.
The research methods course, NUR 574 Nursing Research I: Methods, would be waived. The remainder of the courses leading to the master of science degree is offered late summer, fall, the winter and spring terms so the master’s candidate could complete the program of study in one intensive academic year following completion of the bachelor’s degree.
