Accelerated 2nd Degree BSN

Accelerated 2nd Degree BSN

This program begins summer semester only

Our accelerated BSN program is available to students holding bachelor's degrees from regionally accredited schools in fields other than nursing.  It consists of five semesters of major courses beginning with the summer semester and continuing through Fall semester of the following year.  Certain prerequisite courses apply prior to starting the nursing courses. The BSN degree is awarded after successful completion of all nursing course work qualifying you to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX).  Students holding bachelor's degrees are also eligible for the traditional program.
