Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program

If you have a non-nursing bachelor’s degree, the Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing program at Xavier University builds on this education so you can earn a quality BSN in as few as 16 months.

How the Xavier ABSN Program Works

Comprising 63 credit hours, our ABSN program follows a comprehensive, fast-paced sequence of online and onsite curriculum over four, full-time semesters. And, you can choose to accelerate into the nursing profession by way of our ABSN location in Cincinnati, Cleveland, or Columbus, Ohio.

  • Online accelerated nursing coursework delivered through an interactive e-Learning platform focuses on the fundamentals and theories of the profession.
  • Nursing simulation labs at our ABSN Learning Centers provide a realistic, risk-free platform for developing hands-on skills and clinical judgment.
  • Accelerated BSN clinicals at top local health care facilities provide real-world experience in diverse areas of nursing practice.

Overall, an Accelerated BSN is a serious full-time commitment that requires dedication and persistence. But don’t worry, our nursing faculty and staff will provide you with guidance and support every step of the way.

ABSN Program Outcomes

After graduating from our ABSN program, you’ll be prepared to sit for the NCLEX-RN® exam with confidence and enter the profession as a practice-ready nurse. Also, because the curriculum incorporates the value of holistic care and a true wellness society, Xavier nursing graduates are able to take the Holistic Certification Exam after passing the NCLEX.

Everyone knows that nursing school is hard and stressful, but you just have to breathe and relax. This program is actually less intimidating than I thought it would be. ―Ayana, ABSN Student
