Program Details

The accelerated BSN enrolls a new cohort each August. Admission to the accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (ABSN) is selective. Candidates are evaluated on a rolling basis with application review for each cohort beginning up to a year in advance.

Selection is based on a combination of factors including academic performance (GPA), letters of recommendation, personal statement, life/work experience, and an interview with the admission committee. Candidates must have a cumulative GPA of 2.8 (4.0 scale) and a prerequisite GPA of 3.0 (4.0 scale) to apply.

Candidates have degrees from all academic areas but must have completed the required prerequisites prior to enrollment. All collegiate coursework will be considered during the admission review process. While a minimum GPA of 2.8 is required to apply, the average GPA of students selected for admission is above a 3.0.
