ALLIANCE, Ohio – The University of Mount Union’s second degree accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program is now accepting applications for the May 2019 program launch.
The program is designed specifically with adult learners in mind who have previously earned a bachelor’s degree in a field other than nursing and are seeking a career change. The program, which is approved by the Ohio Board of Nursing and accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, can be completed in as little as 15 months.
This accelerated option will assist in resolving the nursing shortage that is expected to happen over the next few years, and builds on the success of Mount Union’s current BSN program. In fact, the first two classes of BSN graduates at Mount Union’s achieved a rare 100 percent passage rate on the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX).
The accelerated BSN degree at Mount Union allows students to work with state-of-the-art equipment in its new health and medical sciences facility, yet remains one of the most affordable programs of its kind in Stark County, Ohio.
