Connecticut Nursing Schools

Find Baccalaureate, Graduate and Post Grad Programs in the State

If you're in the market for a nursing degree from a Connecticut school you'll find a couple of the finest programs in the country, including Yale University's School of Nursing and two nurse anesthesia programs. A dying breed of nursing degree — the diploma program — is still up for grabs from Bridgeport Hospital's School of Nursing. Diploma programs are old school nursing models — you learn and work, simultaneously, in a busy hospital where you have access to all the latest healthcare practices, the experience of physicians and top-level nurses.

Campus and Online Schools Available

You are no longer absolutely tethered to a campus model for nursing education. Good news is that big strides in distance education for nurses have been made, and for good reason. The industry can't manage to get enough new nurses trained and experienced nurses want to go back to school, too. Working RNs have little time to schedule visits to a campus. Online nursing is now cutting-edge, so if you fail to find a brick and mortar program, don't miss the huge list of online nursing schools available to students almost anywhere in the nation. Online education options span from diplomas, ASN, BSN, MSN, graduate certificates and even Ph.D programs.

Salaries and Job Outlook

A few things you'll want to keep in mind when checking out the nursing schools in Connecticut: first you're really planning for a career, so understand what you study and where you live and work will impact your bottom line once you're in the work force. For example:

The bulk of general RNs in the New Haven area earn between $61,000 and $74,000.* Sound great? Remember, Connecticut residents are dogged with some of the highest costs of living, so that great salary will really play out a bit more modestly once you've paid for rent/mortgage, groceries and utilities. But the state does offer a couple very reputable general hospitals, including Yale-New Haven Hospital. Live in Connecticut and you really get the best of both worlds: New York City and the beautiful New England countryside.
