Accelerated BSN Curriculum

The Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) curriculum is a 64-credit-hour, 15-month program that includes a sequence of clinical and non-clinical courses (does not include any prerequisite courses needed).

The BSN curriculum is based upon standards of nursing education from professional organizations, accreditation standards, state boards of nursing, and changing societal needs related to health care. The curriculum reflects a commitment to evidenced-based nursing practice for individuals, families, and communities that is grounded in an understanding of societal factors that influence health status and the delivery of health care. Students are supported throughout the BSN degree curriculum with small class sizes and intensive one-on-one instruction led by highly qualified faculty in both the classroom and health care environments.
