Accelerated BSN


Looking for a new path? A career in nursing may be right for you!

Fast track your way to a career in the health professions by earning an accelerated bachelor of science in nursing (B.S.N.) degree. Our students come from all walks of life with a variety of prior experiences. Because it's a degree-completion program, each student must hold 60 college credits or a bachelor’s degree in a non-nursing field, making for an exciting melting pot of ideas, personalities and world views. Veterans of the armed forces can receive academic credit for service to help ease the transition back to school.

Located at our Virginia Science and Technology Campus in Ashburn, Virginia, this in-person program is a degree-completion option and only takes four consecutive semesters to complete.
