16-Month Accelerated BSN Program

Our Accelerated BSN program in Cleveland makes it possible to earn a quality BSN in 16 months, just as long as you have a non-nursing bachelor’s degree.

Spanning four full-time semesters, the accelerated nursing program blends online coursework with hands-on skills labs and clinical rotations in diverse areas of nursing practice. While we can’t guarantee where your clinicals will take place, our health care partners within the Cleveland area include the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic.

Overall, our Accelerated BSN program is a rigorous educational path that requires a lot of hard work and dedication to be successful. But don’t worry, our instructors and support staff will be there to see you through nursing school, guiding you every step of the way. After graduating from our accelerated nursing program, you’ll be prepared to sit for the nurse licensure exam and enter the profession as a practice-ready nurse.


Online courses set the foundation of your nursing education, teaching you the fundamentals and theories of the profession anytime, anywhere.
