Schedule and Curriculum

The Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program is an intensive 12-month program that requires 58 credit hours.

The Accelerated BSN Program begins in August each year and covers three semesters -- Fall, Spring and Summer.  Each semester is divided into two shorter terms. 

This is an intensive, full-time program with a demanding schedule of courses and clinical experiences.  Due to the rigor and demands of the didactic coursework and laboratories, clinical practice experiences, ongoing homework and studying, Accelerated BSN students should understand that there is little time to work during the course of this one year program.
