Nursing Department

Saint Anselm College offers one of the most selective and respected nursing programs in New England, preparing its graduates to join the fast evolving world of nursing as compassionate caregivers and leaders in their profession.

We prepare nurses of the future with a Bachelor of Science nursing curriculum that not only offers hands on experience, but develops critical thinking, ethical decision making and effective communication skills.

With its foundation in the liberal arts and sciences, the program offers a humanistic approach to patient care. It provides the latest in simulation technology, including Simman, Simbaby, Birthing Mother, and a Pyxis, as well as clinical experiences and preceptorship at leading hospitals in the region and the country.

When students graduate they are prepared to provide quality care to patients across the lifespan and in all health care settings. They are also prepared to adapt to advances in technology and health care, as well as help lead those changes as their careers develop.

At the completion of the program, the College holds a special event where senior nursing majors receive their Saint Anselm College nurse's pin. The pinning ceremony celebrates the seniors' completion of the highly respected and rigorous nursing program. The pin symbolizes our nurses' preparedness to serve as a compassionate caregiver.

Saint Anselm has 85-90 seats in the freshmen nursing class and receives more than 600 applications per year.
