Academic Support for Students with Learning Disabilities
SH/BHSN provides reasonable accommodations to students with documented learning disabilities/disabilities, so long as such disabilities, as determined on a case-by-case basis, do not preclude the student from meeting the qualifications considered essential by the faculty/staff of the School of Nursing for successful completion of the educational objectives of its curriculum. In order to determine appropriate and effective learning accommodations, current documentation, for example (neuropsychological or psycho-educational evaluations) must be submitted the Office of Counseling and Student Services prior to the start of the semester. Please note that the Massachusetts State Nursing Board will only accept a neuropsychological evaluation if a student request accommodations for the NCLEX exam.
Please contact Meghan Hulbert, Coordinator of Counseling and Student Services, at 508-941-7050 with any questions.
