This associate of science in nursing program provides expert faculty and a diverse and flexible curriculum which maximizes clinical learning experience. Clinical sites include major Boston teaching hospitals, suburban hospitals and a variety of community sites. Graduates qualify to take the national examination for licensure as registered nurses.

For over 75 years the Lawrence Memorial Hospital (LMH) School of Nursing provided hospital-based diploma nursing education. More than 1,800 LMH graduates have joined the profession as registered nurses. These well-educated individuals typify the ideals of LMH graduates - caring, compassionate, committed and competent. These nurses, working in varied settings nationwide, continue to contribute their knowledge and skills to patients, colleagues and their profession.

In 1998 the School of Nursing collaborated with Regis College to provide an associate degree nursing program. Regis College was founded in 1927 and is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges. The professional associate of science nursing degree program is approved by the Board of Registration in Nursing of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission.

Nursing classes are provided at the Medford campus, located on a 16-acre site in Medford, Massachusetts, a suburban community eight miles north of Boston. Facilities for nursing students include classroom and laboratories, offices, conference rooms, an audio-visual center, a multimedia computer learning center, and a health sciences library.

The Medford campus shares its site with Lawrence Memorial Hospital, a 134-bed, non-profit acute care facility, and the Courtyard Nursing Care Center, a 224-bed state-of-the-art nursing center, both affiliates of Hallmark Health. In addition to providing clinical experience for students, the hospital serves as a clinical education site for health professionals and medical students from a number of area colleges and universities.

Enhancing the quality of the clinical learning environment is an instructor-to-student ratio of 1:5-7, which encourages intellectual challenge and supports small group and individualized instruction. Faculty members are appointed on the basis of their scholarship and experience in each nursing specialty.

The students’ learning experience is further enhanced by their early involvement with clients in a variety of health care settings. Clinical experiences are provided at several major Boston teaching hospitals; long-term care facilities; and community, home care, and social service agencies, including Lawrence Memorial Hospital and other Hallmark Health facilities.

In addition to excellent clinical nursing courses, the Lawrence Memorial/Regis College curriculum provides a strong academic foundation of courses in the natural and social sciences and liberal arts. General education courses are provided on the Weston campus at Regis College, a beautiful 168-acre suburban campus 12 miles west of Boston and less than 25 miles from the Medford campus. Students are able to take advantage of the full variety of academic, athletic and social offerings at the Weston campus.
