Professional Licensure Disclosure: Nursing


Bay Path University nursing programs are for students who already hold a registered nurse (RN) license. Bay Path offers a number of post-licensure nursing programs. BPU programs include a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) and a Doctorate in Nursing Practice (DNP). The post-licensure nursing programs are open to students with an unencumbered nursing license in all U.S. states. Those students who wish to practice outside of Massachusetts may contact the State Board of Registration in Nursing for the state in which they reside for further information.

The Bay Path University DNP program with a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) specialization qualifies the graduate to sit the national certification exams offered through AANP or ANCC. The conferred degree, plus national certification, will allow the graduate to apply for APRN (advanced practice nursing) licensure in all 50 states.
