Nursing students and graduates of New Hampshire's community colleges have a seamless, integrated pathway to progress from an associate degree in nursing through to a nursing bachelor's and/or nursing master's degree program as part of the Southern New Hampshire University and New Hampshire community college nursing partnership.
Online Nursing Programs: RN to BSN and Advanced Pathway RN to MSN Option
NH Community College Nursing Partnership - How it Works
The program begins with completion of an associate degree in nursing at any of the state's seven community colleges and advances through a bachelor's degree in nursing and/or completion of a master's degree in nursing, both offered through SNHU Online. The agreement removes barriers to educational advancement for nurses and provides them with an affordable, convenient, innovative, online opportunity for advancing their education.
Key benefits of the partnership include:
Community college nursing students interested in the RN to BSN or Advanced Pathway RN to MSN option should contact their current community college advisor or firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more. Alumni of the CCSNH graduating on or after May 2012 should contact email@example.com for more information.

CCNE Accredited Nursing Program
The baccalaureate degree program in nursing and the master’s degree program in nursing at Southern New Hampshire University are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.
"SNHU's strong ties to our community college partners have always been a source of pride, but the nursing program takes the relationship to a whole new level," said SNHU President Paul LeBlanc. "We have for months worked closely with the nursing chairs from each of the community colleges and built a program that is innovative, affordable, allows nurses to ‘earn while they learn,' and aligns with 'The Future of Nursing' recommendations."
