Our nurses have a reputation for excellence.

One of the biggest benefits of a Saint Anselm degree in nursing? Hospitals and health professionals know and respect our program. 

What else will you gain? Confidence, personal and academic growth, and experience. Saint Anselm nurses work in the top hospitals around the country. They're ethical. Compassionate. And most importantly, well prepared.

In fact the class of 2015 had an NCLEX pass rate of 96.5%.

Our Program

We prepare nurses of the future with a curriculum that offers hands on experience and an emphasis on developing critical thinking, ethical decision making and effective communication skills.

Our nursing students start early--their sophomore year--and practice often. Whether in our labs or at their clinicals, our nurses are getting experience so they're ready for any patient care setting.

Our nurses graduate prepared to provide quality care to patients across the lifespan and in all health care settings. They are able to adapt to advances in technology and health care, and are leaders in their fields.
