Accelerated Path to a New Career in Nursing

If you have a bachelor's degree, Baldwin Wallace's accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) can put you in a rewarding new career in just 15 months. BW combines classroom rigor with comprehensive clinical rotations. You'll gain leadership, communication and critical thinking skills suited to today's complex healthcare system. Upon completion, you'll be prepared to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN).

Students enter BW's BSN with many academic and professional backgrounds. However, all students must have successfully completed specific prerequisite coursework. Individuals interested in studying nursing who do not have a bachelor's degree may qualify for Baldwin Wallace's undergraduate, four-year Bachelor of Science in Nursing.
