ABSN Admission Overview

If you want to start your nursing school journey as soon as possible, our hybrid ABSN program is your fast-track path toward a rewarding new career. With three start dates per year in January, May, and August, you can start working toward earning your Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) sooner than you may think.

To begin, you must first meet the Accelerated BSN admission requirements. You will need a minimum of 60 credits with a cumulative 3.0 GPA or a non-nursing bachelor’s degree with at least a cumulative 2.8 GPA to start the process. Take the time to discuss your education history and any concerns you may have with our admissions representatives so you can plan your next steps.
