Program Overview

Effective December 3, 2018 the College of Nursing has removed the TEAS exam as an admissions requirement for the Accelerated BSN track. Students applying for the Fall 2019 cycle and beyond are no longer required to submit the TEAS within their NursingCAS application.

Fall 2019 Accelerated application period: November 1, 2018 – March 15, 2019

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing Accelerated track (BSN) is specifically designed for the student with a baccalaureate degree in another field who wants to become a Registered Nurse. This limited-access program is a fast-track to a professional nursing career. It is an intensive four-semester program of full-time academic study for motivated individuals looking for a challenging and stimulating career in nursing.

Applicants with a degree can only apply to the Accelerated track. Due to the intensity of the track, the College of Nursing strongly recommends that students refrain from working throughout the duration of the track.

Within the application, the College of Nursing reviews three main components:

  1. An obtained Bachelor’s degree with a cumulative 3.0 or higher
  2. Prerequisite Science GPA: 3.0 or higher                                                    
  3. Personal interview (not all applicants are invited to interview)
