Greenfield Community College’s state-approved Associate Degree Registered Nursing Program was established in 1963 as the first Community College Associate Degree Nursing Program in Massachusetts. Graduates of this program earn an Associate in Science and are eligible to take the licensing exam to become registered nurses (RNs). Responsibilities of the RN include full responsibility for the quality of nursing care provided to individuals and groups; health maintenance, teaching, counseling, collaborative planning and restoration of optimal functioning and comfort; and appropriate delegation of selected nursing activities to other RNs and/or health care personnel, including practical nurses and nursing assistants in a variety of health care settings. Primary employers include hospitals, long-term-care facilities, and community health agencies. Our program is approved by the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Nursing and is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing. Greenfield Community College is part of the Massachusetts Community College System and enjoys a strong statewide and regional reputation. All classes take place on GCC’s main campus.
