  1. is not responsible for incorrect information listed above about the nursing programs offered at each education institution. 

The Nursing Program courses or the program itself offered at each education institution listed can be altered or even canceled depending on the needs of the school.


NIZ highly recommends that you protect and evaluate the costly training investment for your future by comparing school accreditations:

Education Institution Accredidations - Each school listed may be accredited by an organization that may NOT be accepted at a school of higher learning in New Hampshire or by the New Hampshire Board of Nursing.  

An example would be taking 1 to 2 years of PN/ADN courses at one school only to find out that the credits earned will not transfer to a major university.


  • Check with New Hampshire Board of Nursing to see if the schools you selected to possibly attend are on their Approved Nursing Program List. Keep in mind that while a nursing school may be on the board's approved list, the nursing school may be on probation, have a warning designation or listed as a school with only a conditional approval status. 

Ask the nursing board representative a hundred questions about these types of ratings given to a nursing school to make sure you are making the right decision. 

Nursing boards are there to ensure nursing students in New Hampshire receive the proper nursing training and to protect the public from poorly trained nurses.

  • Great, you found no adverse board information about the nursing   schools you selected. 

Now, the next question to ask yourself is...Do you see yourself wanting to purse a BSN, MSN, DNP or even a PhD at a later date after becoming a licensed practical nurse or a licensed registered nurse. Why is that important?

While you may receive a great education at a school that only offers the Practical Nurse certificate or an ADN nursing degree program, their credits may NOT transfer to the state's major universities offering these types of nursing programs.

Discuss with the nursing school's counselor about which schools of higher learning accept their course credits. Get everything in writing in regards to the transferability of the course credits then visit the school of higher learning to verify the course credits earned will indeed transfer.

One final word: NIZ, again, recommends starting your school selection process at New Hampshire Board Of Nursing. 

There have been nursing programs offered in states that are not approved by a state's Board of Nursing which can mean that you will NOT be allowed to sit for the LPN or RN test to become licensed to practice.

Thousands of dollars spent and you can't be licensed can make for a very bad career decision. 

Did I Mention Licensed?

After all that sweating at test time at Nursing School, you will still have to take and pass the test that will make you sweat the most.

You will need to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN) for Registered Nurse (RN) licensure or the (NCLEX-PN) for Practical Nurse (RN) licensure

When either NCLEX exam is passed, the graduate will then receive a license to practice as a Nurse in the state.

Remember my final word noted above.
