Nursing (B.S.N.) Accelerated B.S.N. Full-Time Program

The Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (ABSN) program is designed for students holding a bachelor’s degree in another discipline.

The 60 credit accelerated program prepares you to complete your nursing degree in as few as 16 months. The curriculum not only prepares you for the fast paced nursing field, but also exposes you to multiple specialties. With employers increasingly preferring to hire nurses with a BSN, this can help position you for future success. Upon graduation, you will be equipped to choose your own field of specialty or continue your education toward a career in nursing education, management and more.

Students in the ABSN program must have a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited college or university.
