Accelerated Path to a New Career in Nursing

A rewarding, in-demand career in nursing awaits you. 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. Through a combination of classroom rigor and comprehensive clinical rotations, you'll gain leadership, communication, critical thinking and clinical 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 accelerated 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.

You’ll learn from professors who are nurses with years of clinical as well as academic experience. You’ll develop a compassionate, holistic and team approach to patient care while gaining the skills to prepare you for leadership roles in nursing.
