1. What are the general admission requirements for the ABSN program in Charlotte?
Because it is a second-degree program, students must have a bachelor’s degree in a non-nursing field from an accredited institution, with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0. ABSN prerequisites must also be completed with grades of “C” or higher, including microbiology with labs, human anatomy and physiology with labs, chemistry with labs, statistics, developmental psychology across the lifespan, nutrition and one social science course.
To ensure the delivery of safe, effective nursing care, students must also be able to independently, with or without reasonable accommodation, meet the following technical standards: functional use of human senses, visual observation, verbal and non-verbal communication, gross and fine motor movements, critical thinking skills, behavior and social attributes, and the ability to manage stressful situations.

Our Accelerated BSN program follows a blended learning model. It combines online coursework led by esteemed professors, hands-on experiential learning in our nursing simulation labs in Charlotte and real-world clinical practice in local health care facilities that are among the region’s top employers. This type of program format provides a strong academic foundation along with the clinical preparedness necessary to take the National Council Licensure Exam-RN, or NCLEX-RN, and become a registered nurse.
