NursesMC Overview

The Nurses Middle College (NursesMC) charter high school model was created in 2011 as a solution to the critical nursing shortage and to ensure a diverse nursing/healthcare workforce is prepared to improve health equity outcomes. The flagship school, located in Providence, RI has received national and international attention for its innovative design, impressive student achievement, and positive impact on the community. NursesMC students receive a rigorous college preparatory curriculum, participate in health care internships, obtain an entry level patient care workforce certificate, and earn up to 16 transferable college credits towards a nursing/health care post-secondary degree. The second NursesMC school launched in Albany, NY in fall 2023, and a third school is scheduled to open in Nashville, TN in fall 2025. NursesMC is a non-profit Charter Management Organization and its network schools are separate, 501c3 organizations with their own local Boards, working collaboratively and contractually with NursesMC to replicate the nursing middle college model with fidelity to the NursesMC’s mission and vision.
