Nursing Fifth Year Program (M.S.)

  • Program Overview

    Jump start your advanced nursing practice with our Fifth Year Master's program.

    The Fifth Year program in nursing allows students graduating from Endicott College’s baccalaureate program in nursing to move into the master’s degree program in nursing education or nursing administration. Upon application and meeting eligibility criteria, students take one graduate level course in the senior year. After successful completion of their nurse licensure examination, students will continue coursework in the late summer following graduation and will complete the master’s program in the following year.

    Completing the Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree program at Endicott may reduce the length of the Master of Science in Nursing program.
