Hybrid and Accelerated BSN Nursing Programs in Massachussetts

Accelerated BSN Curriculum

Our 16-month Accelerated BSN program in Massachusetts spans four semesters and comprise 67 credit hours of online coursework, hands-on learning and clinical practice experiences.

By formatting our ABSN curriculum in such a way, you can expect to graduate with the knowledge and clinical skills required to take the NCLEX exam for registered nurse licensure.

While the online coursework focuses on nursing knowledge, you can expect to gain diverse clinical experience in areas such as:

  • Adult Health
  • Obstetrics and Women’s Health
  • Pediatrics
  • Mental and Behavioral Health
  • Acute and Critical Care
  • Public Health
  • Health Management and Leadership

We work closely with top healthcare providers within the community to ensure you gain the best possible clinical experiences to develop critical-thinking and clinical judgement skills.
