Bachelor of Science in Nursing - Accelerated, B.S.N. (online GCS)

Cathy Dillenger, Ph.D., ABSN Program Director

The accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing, offered through an innovative blend of online and clinical coursework, offers the opportunity to earn a baccalaureate degree in nursing in as few as sixteen months.

The accelerated program is specially designed for those who hold a baccalaureate degree in another field or have earned at least 60 credit hours from an accredited college or university and desire a career in nursing. The program provides students with a professional foundation integrating nursing theory with skills required for nursing practice in a personalized interactive experience. It is not an independent study or self-study program. It is an intensive, hybrid, highly concentrated, full-time program of study that blends the convenience of theoretical online learning with hands-on clinical practice.

Graduates of this rigorous program will be awarded a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. They will be eligible to take the required National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). After passing the NCLEX-RN, graduates will be licensed to practice as a registered nurse in a host of medical settings.

New applications for the Accelerated BSN program are not being accepted for 2023-2024.
