Xavier University Accelerated Nursing School Tuition

When it comes to accelerated nursing school tuition, the cost of our 16-month, ABSN program is $880 per credit hour, with 63 credit hours required to complete the program. You should also plan for other program-related fees, including but not limited to administrative fees, test assessments, insurance, supplies and uniforms.

Like any higher education program, a second-degree accelerated BSN program represents an investment, so entry into our ABSN program should not be taken lightly.

Keep in mind, however, that graduating with your BSN from Xavier University provides a high return on your investment. Not only will you be prepared to take the NCLEX-RN, you will have a quality degree from a university that is respected worldwide by prospective employers and fellow nurses.
