The Accelerated Track is a prescribed sequence of required nursing courses taken over 18 months of study. One of the criteria of this track is that the student must have successfully completed all 61 credits of liberal arts and science prerequisite courses.
The Individualized Track supports either full-time or part-time study and the student will complete the nursing program in approximately 2-1/2 years. Upon successful completion of the program, students will graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree.
