Accelerated Bachelor of Science Nursing Program

While there are several paths to a nursing career, our second-degree accelerated nursing program in Cincinnati, Ohio is the best, fastest route if you have a non-nursing college degree and want to transition into the profession.

The full-time program combines online coursework with hands-on learning and clinical practice, giving you the knowledge and skills required to take the NCLEX-RN with confidence and become a sought-after RN in as few as 16 months.

Our accelerated nursing program in Cincinnati 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 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 second career as a registered nurse.
