Nurses must think at a higher level, make sound clinical judgements with limited information, and perform these actions in fast-paced environments while maintaining empathy, compassion, and patient dignity. These are the foci of the new State Board licensing exam. Assumption’s nursing program is comprehensive, contemporary, and prepared to support you in meeting these expectations. We’re focused on equipping nurses to thrive in our evolving healthcare industry—today, tomorrow, and well into the future.
