Husson University's BSN nursing program is CCNE-accredited, so you can be sure that your education will meet the highest standards. As you pursue your undergraduate nursing degree here, you’ll learn under our expert faculty who are not only committed educators but also active and experienced nursing professionals with a full range of specialty areas in healthcare. Your professors and instructors will become your mentors as you pursue your educational and career goals, and they will guide you into the field by teaching you in clinical simulation centers.

These safe practice environments give you the opportunity to practice and develop your nursing skills as you gain experience through high-tech simulations that use computerized “manikins” as patient stand-ins. You'll also get hands-on clinical experiences in a range of healthcare and community settings, and put your learning to the test in professional healthcare environments. As you progress through this program, you’ll not only learn what it takes to be a successful nurse but also develop the professionalism, leadership and management skills required by today's nurses.


Based on recent estimates, registered nurses in the state of Maine typically earn between $50,000 - $80,000 a year, depending on experience. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, job prospects for nurses are expected to grow by about 6 percent over the next decade, with hundreds of thousands of openings and job opportunities available across the state and country.

With a degree from Husson's BS nursing program, you'll be certain to stand out amongst other job seekers. In fact, 100% of our nursing graduates are employed upon graduation. As a student here, you will have opportunities for career exploration including job shadowing and attendance at career panels comprised of nurses in various areas in the field. Your curriculum here will also prepare you for the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN®exam), which is required to work as a registered nurse.


Our curriculum provides a strong foundation of knowledge and skill in nursing and healthcare. In addition, you'll take a range of general education courses that will broaden your perspective and build strength in key areas like critical thinking and communication. These courses will provide a strong basis for both a nursing career and a baseline for further study and pursuit of an MSN degree.

Clinical experience in nursing is integrated throughout the program. The required Senior Practicum is a preceptorship experience at an assigned healthcare setting, which means you’ll be working one-on-one with an experienced nurse who will help you progress into a strong practicing professional.
