Career Services

Connections are critical to a successful career in nursing: A student’s advisors, a school’s alumni, and invaluable clinical experiences can help students explore potential positions.

Connell School students take an active role in building their professional networks through a variety of clinical placements throughout New England. They also benefit from one-on-one mentorship with CSON faculty, who are leading scientists, scholars, and practitioners. Many faculty members are accomplished clinicians currently working in hospitals, private practice, and other settings that present potential career opportunities for students.

Our students also connect with dedicated CSON alumni and the extensive Boston College alumni network during campus events, including the Pinnacle Lecture Series and homecoming.

CSON alumni are highly regarded practitioners and leaders in the field. Our graduates find employment as advanced practice nurses, clinical researchers, and educators. One hundred percent of graduates from the class of 2014 were employed in a health-related field within 12 months of graduation.
