Admissions Overview for the Accelerated BSN Program in Boston

Whether you have an undergraduate degree in accounting, zoology, or anything in between, our Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (ABSN) program is an effective way to quickly transition into nursing. While applying to nursing school may seem stressful, our admissions team is dedicated to making the process as smooth as possible for you.

Program Eligibility

To qualify for our ABSN program, you must have a non-nursing bachelor’s degree and a minimum 3.0 GPA. You will also need to complete the ABSN prerequisites and a few other admissions requirements.

Our admissions counselors can help you:

  • Understand the program requirements and review your qualifications
  • Develop a personalized academic plan that works toward a particular start date
  • Prepare your application and submit it to the Northeastern University School of Nursing

Enrollment Schedule

The unique structure of our ABSN program allows us to offer three start dates a year, in January, May and September. 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 typically due two months before the first day of class. Please speak with an admissions counselor for specific application deadlines.
