Accelerated BSN Prerequisites

While you may satisfy the admission requirements, you may still need to complete prerequisites before you can start the Accelerated BSN program.

If you have an existing bachelor’s degree, you will only need to complete 6 credits of Religion and the nursing prerequisites; general education prerequisites will be waived.
