ABSN Prerequisites

Our Accelerated BSN program is rigorous, so it is important to feel as confident and prepared as possible before you enroll. Many of our students enter the program after being away from the school environment for a few years. Therefore, we require prospective ABSN students to complete certain prerequisite courses before starting the core nursing curriculum.

Your ABSN prerequisites lay the foundation for your success in our nursing program and are an essential part of your overall preparation as a nurse.
