Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (ABSN)

The program duration is 4 consecutive semesters. The ABSN program begins each spring semester with classes starting in January. Courses and clinical sessions are delivered on campus and at local clinical sites by professors who understand the challenges and rewards of nursing in the health care environment.

ABSN students can expect to be on-site for 10 to 12 hours per day, Monday-Thursday, with some on Friday and Saturday. ABSN students are strongly advised not to try and have a job while enrolled in the program.

Job prospects in this field are excellent. There is a great need for nurses in various health care settings who are high-quality professional nursing leaders. Health care occupations are projected to add more jobs than any other occupational group as an aging population leads to greater demand for health care services.

Due to the accelerated pace of this program, please review the Readiness Self–Assessment.
