Undergraduate Admissions

The School of Nursing (SoN) offers two Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) Programs, the Traditional BSN Program and Accelerated BSN Program. The Traditional BSN Program is 24 months in length (Fall & Spring semesters only) and is designed for individuals with no previous nursing education or experience. The Accelerated BSN Program is 15 months in length and moves at a faster pace than the Traditional BSN program.
