Accelerated Second Degree in Nursing

The Accelerated Second Degree is a rigorous, full-time program for completing a baccalaureate in nursing in 20 months – two academic years plus one intensive summer semester.

Our program is based on a cohort model: an integrated, cohesive group, limited to 24 students, that functions at an accelerated pace.

Admission is highly competitive. Candidates must already hold an associate’s, baccalaureate, or higher degree in a non-nursing major, and complete all entry requirements.

Application deadline for the program is March 15, 2020.

Informational Sessions

As an important part of the process, the Admissions Office conducts regular information sessions, August through March, designed to answer a majority of applicant questions.
