Our ABSN admission team looks for candidates who have a non-nursing bachelor’s degree. We offer a 16-month on-site-based ABSN program with three start dates each year—in January, May, and September—meaning you can start earlier and optimize your ABSN admissions process.

Before starting our accelerated nursing program, we have a number of prerequisites and requirements you will need to fulfill. Our admission counselors will help you create a plan and set a goal start date, allowing you to begin nursing school in less time.
