Undergraduate Program:  Accelerated Prelicensure B.S.N.

This track is for those already holding a baccalaureate degree in another field of study who want to prepare for a career in nursing while earning a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.). The Accelerated Prelicensure track is concentrated and can be completed in four (4) consecutive semesters of full-time study, or about 15 months. Upon graduation from the program, students will sit for the NCLEX-RN licensing exam. This track is designed for those who will possess a baccalaureate degree in another field before entering. The Accelerated Prelicensure BSN track admits each semester (spring, summer, & fall) with up to 42 seats in each cohort. 

The curriculum provides a strong scientific base of study with a diversity of clinical experiences and unique opportunities to work with vulnerable and underserved populations. The curriculum is community-based in that it supports engagement with the community throughout the nursing major by nurturing and building relationships with community agencies consistently over time through an innovative home-basing of students in a designated community for the entire length of their nursing program.

Two types of courses make up the nursing curriculum: professional courses and clinical/laboratory courses. Clinical/laboratory courses are distinguished by the C or L that follows the course number. Clinical courses will carry a 1:4 credit-to-contact hour ratio. The nursing curriculum is a full-time course of study and follows a specific sequence.
