Differences between the Traditional BSN and Accelerated Programs

  • Accelerated BSN Program may be a good alternative for students who have a less-competitive GPA in the Pre-Nursing Core, and are unable to get admitted to the Traditional BSN Program.

  • Accelerated BSN Program is a good alternative for students who still need to complete most of the Pre-Nursing Core science courses. All Pre-Nursing Core courses must be completed prior to being admitted to the Accelerated BSN Program.
