Explore what makes LMRC special…

Our longevity

LMRC continues to provide excellence in education since first opening in 1924 as the Lawrence Memorial Hospital School of Nursing diploma program.

Our education partner

In partnership with Regis College (Weston, MA) since 1998, our students can continue seamlessly to earn advanced degrees in nursing or radiography — as far as their aspirations drive them.

Our programs

Our Nursing and Radiography Associate Degree programs offer a unique blend of classroom and clinical experience, expert faculty and dynamic curricula. Graduates of these associate degree programs qualify to take the national examination for licensure as registered nurses or radiographers.  Our partnership with Regis College (Weston, MA) enables seamless transition to completing your Bachelors Degree in Nursing or Medical Imaging, as well as advanced degree programs.

Our Continuing Studies offers a certificate in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) for licensed radiologic technologists, taught by LMRC faculty and certificates awarded by MelroseWakefield Healthcare of Tufts Medicine.

Our effectiveness

The effectiveness of our programs meets or exceeds the rigors set by the accrediting and regulatory bodies by which we are governed.  The success of our graduates is a testament to the high caliber of our students and the dedication and commitment of our faculty and staff.

Our affordability

Our tuition is less than that of a typical full-time college or university because our students pay for courses by the number of credits — NOT by the full-semester tuition.  Financial aid and scholarships are also available.

Our student community

Students come here because of LMRC’s reputation as an exceptional school.  Most hear about LMRC from a family member, colleague or friend who has graduated.  Our students come from all walks of life, span in age from 19 to late-50’s and commute from near and far — some from neighboring states and most from local cities and towns.  They learn together, grow together and improve LMRC through student leadership pursuits.

The bonds students make at LMRC last a lifetime.

Our faculty

Over 40% of our faculty graduated from our programs!  Their caregiving expands beyond the nursing units and imaging suites to the classroom to teach, guide, coach and inspire future nurses and radiographers.  They model how professional nurses and radiologic technologists conduct themselves in healthcare settings, and their value of lifelong learning and growth — all our faculty have an advanced degree and many have earned Doctor of Nursing Practice or are in process.

Learning is lifelong, caring is lifelong.

Our staff

Our small, close-knit staff gets to know each and every student and works to support and guide them to the best of their abilities every single day:  Bursar, Financial Aid Administrator, Data Administrator, Admissions Coordinator, Registrar — all located in our “Hallway of Help”.
