The Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing now offers a third pathway for achieving a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree through its new Distance Accelerated BSN (D-ABSN) program.

This program allows students with a bachelor’s degree to earn a BSN in just 54 weeks. Students will engage individually and with classmates daily through an online, inquiry-guided learning environment and complete their clinicals close to home. The majority of coursework will be delivered online with three on-campus sessions for intensive content delivery, simulations, procedural skills labs and competency validation.

There are many advantages to this new program for its students including: 

  • Earning a BSN in 12 months (54 weeks) from a nationally-recognized leader in health care
  • Gaining the best of both worlds - learning collaboratively online and through face-to-face instruction on campus
  • Completing clinical rotations where students live
  • Partnering with world-class faculty and clinical instructors in precepted clinical experiences
  • Gaining the leadership and clinical skills needed to take their career to the next level
