Nursing Programs Re-accredited

We are proud to announce that the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) has awarded the BS, RN-BS and MS nursing programs a full, 10-year reaccreditation through 2026. CCNE has also awarded a full five-year initial accreditation of our Doctorate of Nursing Practice (DNP) Program, through 2021.


The Nursing program maintains Full Approval Status from the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Nursing.

First time pass rate exceeds state and national averages

Eighty-nine percent of our 2016 bachelor of science nursing graduates who took the licensure exam (NCLEX) passed on their first try. UMass Lowell's first time pass rate of 89 percent exceeds the state average of 83.6 percent and national average of 84.5 percent. We are proud of our graduates and wish them the best of luck in their nursing careers.
