Licensure in Massachusetts

Nurses who graduate from MSN programs that prepare Nurse Practitioners are licensed as Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs) by the Board of Registration in Nursing. Requirements for licensure include current RN licensure; transcripts from your educational program; proof of graduate level coursework in pathophysiology, advanced physical assessment, and pharmacotherapeutics; current national certification; and good moral character, as defined by state law.

According to the American Association of Nurse Practitioners, Massachusetts NPs have a restricted practice environment. This means that state law or rule requires physician supervision, delegation, or team management by another health care provider as a condition for an NP to provide direct patient care. Restrictions in law or rule may also limit NP scope of practice.

According to data published in May 2018 by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average salary for a Nurse Practitioner in Massachusetts was $122,740. This is significantly higher than the average RN salary of $92,140.
