Accelerated Bachelor of Science Nursing Program

While there are several paths to a nursing career, the Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing program at Xavier University makes it possible for non-nursing college graduates to transition into this high-demand profession in as few as 16 months.

With enrollment locations in Cincinnati and Columbus, Ohio, our full-time, four-semester ABSN program combines online coursework with hands-on labs and clinical rotations. Together, these three learning components provide the knowledge and skills required to take the NCLEX-RN® with confidence.

How the Xavier ABSN Program Works

Our accelerated nursing program for non-nurses leverages your existing bachelor’s degree so you don’t have to start your college education over from square one. In other words, you do not have to retake any liberal arts-type classes—you only participate in courses that are required to be an RN.

Once accepted into the Xavier ABSN program, you can expect a rigorous course of study that requires a significant investment of time and energy.

While a challenging endeavor, once you graduate from our Accelerated BSN program, you will be fully prepared to begin your nursing career with a BSN degree.
