Spanning four semesters, our 16-month Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (ABSN) program requires you to complete 67 credit hours of study, including online courses led by our esteemed School of Nursing professors, hands-on skills and simulation labs at our state-of-the-art nursing site and clinical practice through our community partnerships with premier local health care facilities.
Because our ABSN curriculum is based on a blended learning model that includes both rigorous online coursework and in-person experiential instruction, you can expect to graduate with a strong academic foundation as well as the clinical preparedness required to take the NCLEX-RN® and become a practice-ready nurse.
The program’s online courses provide exposure to concepts such as leadership, cultural diversity, research methods, ethics, nursing informatics, and evidence-based practice, so you’ll learn to perform effectively as a nurse leader in today’s dynamic health-care environments.
Clinical rotations will allow you to gain real-world, hands-on experience in a wide array of practice areas, including:
- Adult Health
- Obstetrics and Women’s Health
- Mental and Behavioral Health
- Acute and Critical Care
- Public Health
- Health Management and Leadership
In keeping with our commitment to experiential learning, these immersive clinical rotations will help develop your clinical judgment, preparing you to put ideas into action and grow as an innovative, critical thinker and problem solver — through work, research, study, and service.
