BSN Accelerated Second Degree Track
Accelerated Second Degree Track Curriculum
64 credit hours
The BSN accelerated second degree track curriculum is cutting edge, concept-based, and competency focused. It is specially designed for anyone who has earned a bachelor's degree in a non-nursing field and who wants to pursue a nursing career. Many of the general education credit hours (such as the humanities, communications, and social sciences) from your first degree can be transferred and applied toward your BSN degree. Use our transcript self-evaluation tool to determine which prerequisite courses you may have already completed. The accelerated nursing track will also prepare you to pursue graduate education.
In fact, we lead the way when it comes to designing relevant and vigorous coursework that reflects the current changes in health care. Why? To make sure that you will be exceptionally well-prepared for your future in nursing. The program learning outcomes will show you just what we mean.
