An accelerated BSN is a program for those who already have a bachelors degree in another field, and concentrates pretty much only on nursing classes and any prereqs that weren't taken during their first degree. It is also typically much less than the traditional 4 year program (my nursing school's took 9 months, with no breaks between semesters) A BSN program is for those who do not hold a bachelors at all. They can be high school grads or those who hold an ADN and are returning for the higher degree. There are also RN-BSN programs for those who are RNs but don't hold a bachelors degree.
