The School of Nursing at the University of Massachusetts Amherst has always been a leader in nursing education. Since its founding in 1953, it has continuously developed academic programs to address society's ongoing and emerging health needs and to prepare graduates for practice in diverse settings.
Faculty with published nursing research, advanced clinical skills, and innovative approaches to teaching challenge and engage students, offering them various modes of learning including self-paced modules. At the bachelor's degree level, foundation courses in the arts, sciences and humanities form the basis of the nursing major, which prepares graduates to practice in various health-care settings. The undergraduate program integrates the core knowledge, core competencies, and role development expected for the undergraduate level of nursing education. The master's programs build on baccalaureate competencies and focus on developing clinical specialty roles. Doctoral programs provide preparation for a research/academic role (PhD) and advanced clinical practice (DNP).
