Common majors: biology, kinesiology, psychology, social welfare

The pre-nursing track will prepare you for accelerated bachelor’s degree programs in nursing, or Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) programs. As a nurse, you’ll work closely with doctors to offer care and advocate for your patients and their families. Nurses with master’s degrees specialize in a certain field of nursing (such as nurse practitioners, certified nurse midwives, clinical nurse specialists and certified registered nurse anesthetists) and have higher earning potential.

Gordon also offers a dual-degree nursing program with Curry College. Learn more ➔
