Our 16-month ABSN program in Columbus offers start dates in January, May, and August, ample clinical placements, and an online learning component that gives students an additional degree of flexibility in pursuing their nursing dreams.

Because it’s a second-degree option, our ABSN program is for individuals who hold a bachelor’s degree in another field of study and want to accelerate their nursing career. You’ll find that our ABSN students come from diverse educational backgrounds. While some nursing students have degrees in psychology and biology, others studied marketing, finance, or the liberal arts in college.
