Whether you enroll for our ABSN program in Cincinnati, Cleveland, or Columbus, you’ll learn the fundamentals and theories of the profession via online accelerated nursing program coursework.

These online courses set the foundation of your nursing education, allowing you to study key nursing concepts at the location of your choosing. Keep in mind that although this portion is online, instructor deadlines still apply.


While you’ll complete a total of 21 online courses over four semesters, it’s important to note that it is impossible to earn a BSN 100% online. As an ABSN student, you’ll regularly attend hands-on skills labs at the ABSN Learning Center associated with your program of enrollment.

During nursing skills and simulation labs, our clinical instructors will teach you how to put the core concepts you learned online into practice. These labs also help remove the fear of the unknown, making it easier to transition into your clinical rotations at local hospitals and health care facilities.

Delivered through an intuitive e-learning program, each online accelerated nursing course consists of different learning modules. Within each course module, there are a series of assignments you must complete within a specified timeframe. Module components typically include:

  • Interactive activities
  • Patient case studies
  • Informational videos
  • Discussion boards

Also, through the e-learning platform, you’ll need to prepare for your nursing skills and simulation labs in advance. We provide you with a lab guide and checklist so that you come to your ABSN labs fully prepared.
