Admissions Process for the Accelerated BSN Program

Whether you have an undergraduate degree in biolog, psychology, or anything in between, our Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (ABSN) program is an effective way to change your career to nursing. While applying to nursing school may seem stressful, our admissions team is dedicated to making the process as simple as possible for you.

Key Admissions Steps

Because our admissions counselors work exclusively with ABSN students, they know the ins and outs of the program and are committed to your success. During your first interview, they will help you start to develop a pre-enrollment plan that targets a preferred start date. Here is a quick look at what steps you should expect during the admission process:

  • Schedule a time to speak with an admissions counselor
  • Confirm your program eligibility
  • Order your official academic transcripts
  • Complete your prerequisite courses
  • Submit a current resume
  • Prepare your goal statement and video essay
  • Request three letters of academic/professional recommendation
  • Submit your official admissions application online (includes a $75 application fee)

You will need to mail in your academic transcripts. The mailing address is different depending on your interest in the Boston or Charlotte location, so be sure to ask your admissions counselor for this information.

Start Schedule

Our ABSN program in Boston and Charlotte offers three start dates a year, in January, May and September per location. This gives us the flexibility to admit a greater number of qualified students into the program each year, and it lets you get started when you’re ready. Applications for a program start are usually due two months before the first day of class. Please talk to your admissions counselor for specific application deadlines.
