Accelerated BSN?

  1. Does anyone know if there are any accelerated nursing programs that don't require you to have a non-nursing bachelors degree first?

    I seem to recall reading about this somewhere, but can't remember where/when that was.

    University of Maryland does. I think it gives you one semester less time. But you still need the usual nursing prereqs.

    I will be starting an accelerated BSN program in Sept. that will take 23 mos after all prereq's are finished. I will be in school about 6 months longer than I would have for my ADN.

    I have about 15 hours of pre-reqs left for the BSN program down the road (MUW, anybody ever heard anything about it?)... The fall/junior years total up to about 24 mos together, so if I decide to apply next cycle that'll be where I'm trying to get in (most likely).

    Barry University in Fl does not require a Bachelors degree but students with one get preference over the ones that don't have one.
    Good luck!

    Vanderbilt University has a MSN "bridge" program that requires that you either have your ASN, BSN or 78 hours of college credit. You do NOT have to already have to have your RN to get into this program, here is the website

    Hope this helps!
