With the educational foundation necessary to succeed, Worcester State University nursing graduates assume leadership roles throughout Massachusetts and beyond, actively shaping the health care of tomorrow.

Recently, they were among the 83% of respondents to a survey of 2015 graduates who said that they either agree or strongly agree that their academic program prepared them for employment and the 91% who reported that they are employed, enrolled in graduate school, or both. After all, 100% of the 2016 graduating class of nursing students passed the NCLEX exam. A bachelor’s degree in nursing enables you to earn a median annual salary of over $68,000.
In addition to her work for Active Minds on the local and national level, Elizabeth Dugas hopes to find an internship in mental health nursing or clinical pediatrics. After graduating, she wants to work for Doctors without Borders and then return to the United States to earn her master’s degree in nursing and eventually become a professor of nursing. “I feel like I should understand the world before I go out in the world,” she says.
