Are there accelerated BSN programs starting in January? Where?
- 0May 16, '11 by veebeeGI have a Bachelors in Science from the University of Toronto (in Ontario, Canada) with a 2.93 gpa (I know it sucks )! I want to be a nurse and I understand that I have to have a Bachelors in Nursing which I can obtain after an Accelerated BSN program. I am now looking to apply to some schools that may be starting in JANUARY 2012, are there any recommendations? I don't mind going to the states (since my family is going to settle there) or staying in Canada. So if there are ANY accelerated BSN programs starting in January in USA or CANADA, I would really appreciate it if you could suggest them.

- 0May 16, '11 by leenakI misread your message and didn't realize you were looking at Accelerated BSN only. I'd start just going down the list and seeing what schools offer accelerated BSNs and when they start. I was looking at Georgetown University today and it appears to have a fall/spring start for ABSN. Johns Hopkins has a summer start.Last edit by leenak on May 16, '11

You can also post on forums for states that you might be interested in moving to. Good luck!
- 0May 16, '11 by sugarmagnoliaRNUniversity of Texas Arlington has an Accelerated BSN program that has several start dates throughout the year (I'm pretty sure one of them is January)... for this program you do your classes online and then clinicals at a hospital in the DFW area. Baylor University in Dallas also has an accelerated BSN ("Fastbacc" is what it's called there) as does Texas A&M, Texas Womans University, and Texas Christian University. Lots of options in Texas!
Some of these school can be very expensive (A&M and UTA are by far the best value) as well as very competitive... I'm in the area also seeking a second degree and will most likely get my ADN through a community college and then bridge to BSN after graduating.
