Accelerated Bachelor of Science at SIUE
The post-baccalaureate Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing option allows students with a bachelor’s degree to attain a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree with a major in nursing through three (3) semesters and one (1) summer session. It is an intense, defined curriculum with a combination of classroom instruction and clinical experiences for students seeking a second baccalaureate degree from the School of Nursing. Coursework and clinical experiences are of the same high quality as the traditional first-degree baccalaureate progression, but taken at an accelerated pace.
Upon successful completion of the option, students are eligible to take the National Council Licensure Exam (NCLEX-RN) to obtain their license as a registered nurse. Students must be dedicated and willing to attend classes as many as five (5) days a week and devote an appropriate amount of time to their studies in order to be successful with this option. The full-time program begins in August (fall semester).
