Accelerated Option

The Post-Baccalaureate Accelerated Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing Option (ABS) allows students with a previous bachelor's degree to attain a B.S. degree in Nursing within three semesters and one summer session. It is an intense, defined curriculum with a combination of classroom instruction and clinical experiences. Course work and clinical experiences are of the same high quality as the traditional first-degree baccalaureate progression, but taken at an accelerated pace.

Students interested in this program must have a strong academic record and complete designated prerequisite courses prior to admission into the Option. The full-time program begins each August (fall semester). ABS students pay applicable graduate-level tuition and fees.
