Schools offering Nursing in Massachusetts

In the Bay State, following the Red Sox is an important free-time activity for some. Massachusetts residents also work a variety of day jobs — many in education, tourism and health care. Hospitals and health care centers actually make up a good portion of the state's  employers, which is a good reason to be interested in Massachusetts' online nursing schools.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, more than 85,000 registered nurses worked in the densely populated state in 2010. Their mean yearly salary was $84,990 — well above the average of $67,720 for these professionals nationwide. In Massachusetts, licensed practical and licensed vocational nurses earned an annual mean wage of $49,620 as of May 2010.

Massachusetts Nursing Schools Online: A Good Bet

The state is home to over 60 public and private colleges and universities, many of which offer nursing programs. Students in need of more flexibility may want to consider online nursing schools in Massachusetts — Capella University or Benedictine University, for example. Online nursing programs often offer a combination of virtual classes, peer interaction and hands-on clinical practice, with scheduling options that can help fit a busy nursing student's needs. This can even accommodate people who want to continue working while pursuing a degree.

There are many medical centers in and around Boston, which is helpful for students who are seeking internships and practical experience. Potential employers in the area include institutions such as Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women's Hospital, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School.

Massachusetts is certainly a center of opportunity for those interested in a nursing career. And if they're not Red Sox fans, residents of the state can always follow the Patriots, Bruins or Celtics.
