Newmark Grubb Knight Frank (NGKF) is pleased to announce that Orbis Education, in partnership with Northeastern University’s Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (ABSN) Program signed a long-term, 13,904-square-foot lease expansion at 5 Burlington Woods Drive in Burlington, Massachusetts.
Part of Northeastern University’s School of Nursing, the ABSN Program is designed for those who already hold a Bachelor’s degree in another field and wish to acquire a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing and become a Registered Nurse.
