Mission Statement

Founded in 1892, Labouré College is recognized today as a leader in higher education in the Greater Boston area. We are unique because of our innovative approach to teaching and commitment to preparing healthcare professionals who reflect and care for a diverse patient population. Our mission is to provide high-quality education to women and men to prepare them for careers in the nursing and allied health fields....the College seeks to give opportunities to a diverse population of students to continue their education as mature adults and responsible world citizens.

Background Statement

Labouré College, located in Milton, Massachusetts, is recognized today as a leader in higher education in the Greater Boston area. We are unique because of our innovative approach to teaching and commitment to preparing healthcare professionals who reflect and care for a diverse patient population.  Labouré College was founded by the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent DePaul in 1892 as the Carney Hospital Training School for Nurses, and in 1951, merged with two other schools, St. John’s Hospital School of Nursing, and St. Margaret’s Hospital School of Nursing to form the Catherine Labouré School of Nursing, the first independent, regional, diploma program for nurses In New England.   Responding to changing needs in the healthcare industry, the school changed its name to Labouré Junior College in 1971, and began offering Associate degrees in allied health as well, adding dietetic technology in 1972, and over the next nine years, EEG Technology, respiratory therapy, medical record technology and radiation therapy technology. In 1984, the school again changed its name, this time to Labouré College. The majority of our students are working adults with nearly 93% of our students attending on a part-time basis. Ninety-percent reside in Greater Boston and their average age is over 30, indicating a high number of “second career” students. Ninety percent are female and 10% percent are male with approximately 48% representing diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds.


Impact Statement

Labouré College is an important educational resource to the greater Boston community and provides working adults in the area access to a college education and employment in the health care field that they might otherwise not have. Its success as a strong, thriving institution of higher education is critical. Our academic programs have grown to include six degree programs and six certificate programs serving more than 700 students each year. In June, 2011 the school granted its first Bachelor of Science Nursing degrees (BSN), welcomed new President, Maureen A. Smith in February, 2012, and moved to a new campus in 2013, the former Aquinas College in Milton Lower Mills.  

 


Needs Statement

Recent strategic planning identified these current strategic goals: 1) Enhance the college’s mission of access for diverse student populations; 2) Enhance and promote a culture of academic excellence in healthcare education, rooted in scholarship and the community; 3) Strengthen the financial base of the college; 4) Develop growth opportunities that increase the number of programs and expand the college’s geographic reach; and 4) Establish Laboure’ as the key knowledge/skill provider for healthcare partners in greater Boston.

 

Our top five most pressing needs that will help us to accomplish these goals include:

1.   Completion of capital improvements for our new campus located in Milton, Massachusetts. 

2.   Implementation of our Instructional Support & Technology Resource Project is to increase the capacity of our institution’s technology and instructional resources so that we may strengthen student teaching and learning. 

3.   Development of a virtual laboratory for using in our Blended Learning classes enabling us to strengthen virtual student learning.

4.   Acquisition of new technology in support of our radiation therapy program.

5.  Development of curriculum and resources in support of our new Intraoperative Monitoring (NIOM) Certificate Program.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

After over 50 years in Dorchester, Labouré College recently purchased and renovated its new campus at 303 Adams Street in Milton. With free on-site student parking, accessible bus routes and zero Boston traffic - it is now even easier to launch your career in health care at Labouré!

Labouré College has been educating nurses in Boston since 1892. Preparing students for careers in health care is our sole focus. Labouré offers dedicated faculty, small class sizes, a freshly renovated campus and an innovative curriculum. Choosing courses that fit your life is easy with both day and evening programs and flexible scheduling in hybrid, online and face-to-face formats.

When the pay is enough to support you and your family – its even better. Despite the economy, the health care field is growing and offers lucrative pay, flexible schedules and work worth doing.

At Labouré, you can earn a bachelor degree in nursing, an associate degree in nursing, health information technology, nutrition or radiation therapy or a certificate in coding, neurodiagnostic technology or nutrition. Your opportunities for a life-long career in health care are truly wide open.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

With the move to the new campus in Milton, the College will no longer be affiliated financially with Steward Healthcare. We will be managing our own independent operating budget and responsible for the expenses related to the upkeep and maintenance of the facilities. In addition, we will now have a mortgage to help us pay for this new campus which will also increase our operating responsibilities.

Impact

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.


1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

--

2. What are your strategies for making this happen?

--

3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?

--

4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?

--

5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
