Second Degree Accelerated BSN Program

Our Accelerated BSN program blends online coursework with hands-on nursing labs at one of our ABSN Learning Centers, and clinical rotations at top health care facilities in Ohio, including Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, Cleveland Clinic, and OhioHealth.

To begin the admission process, you need a non-nursing bachelor’s degree and a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.7. From there, you must satisfy four ABSN prerequisites as a condition of enrollment.

Whether you choose our Cincinnati, Cleveland, or Columbus location, you’ll complete the same accelerated nursing curriculum taught by highly supportive instructors. Just make sure you’re ready to commit to 16 months of rigorous full-time study.

As a graduate of our Accelerated BSN program, you’ll have the academic foundation and clinical preparedness required to enter the profession and improve the health interests of individuals, families, and communities.

Please note that changes in the delivery of skills and simulations labs as well as clinicals may occur due to changing COVID-19 protocols. For more information on COVID-19 please visit the Xavier University COVID-19 Dashboard.
