Adult and Graduate /
Accelerated BSN Program
Have you completed a bachelor’s or graduate degree in a
non-nursing field, but desire to have a career in nursing? If yes, then this
program is for you! Our Accelerated BSN Program takes just 20 months to
complete on a traditional full-time schedule.
Our program consists of five consecutive 15-week semesters,
including a 13-week summer term. Through strong partnerships with area health
care systems, we immerse students in clinical work immediately— giving you
hands-on patient experience in your first semester on campus.
Advanced Capital's reputation for excellence in nursing education
fosters the growth of future nurse leaders. We take pride in graduating
confident clinicians who are focused on holistic practice. To prepare you, we
have designed our curriculum to include three master’s-level courses. These
courses are the core of our Master's of Science in Nursing program and allow
you to learn among nurse leaders in the community.
Selective As accelerated nursing programs grow in popularity, the
admission process comes with heighten competition. In order to establish
yourself as a strong candidate, we encourage you to have the majority of
science prerequisites completed so your grades are available for faculty review
at the time of application. We require a B+ average (2.75) in your
Microbiology, Anatomy, and Physiology; and a cumulative 3.0 GPA from all
previous course work. While grades are important, we are looking for a
well-rounded student with a strong passion for nursing and a comprehensive
understanding of this program. As part of the admission process, we do offer an
interview invitation to a select number of applicants each year.
