Prep Phase:

Offered Summer/Fall/Spring terms

Missing ALL or some of the required prerequisites? Don’t worry – you can still immediately apply with us! We offer a Preparation Phase that allows you to complete necessary general education with us over just 1-2 semesters. Entering the Preparation Phase with us guarantees your spot in the Clinical Phase immediately after successful completion of remaining prerequisite general education courses!

Clinical Phase:

Can start clinical phase in Fall or Spring only. Nursing courses year-round after start.

For those who successfully complete our Preparation Phase or those who have previously completed all required prerequisite courses*, your next step is nursing coursework via our Clinical Phase! Nursing courses are uniquely offered year-round, which is what allows you to complete your BSN more quickly. The Clinical Phase is delivered over 6 semesters/2 years of year-round coursework. **Clinical seats are awarded on a rolling basis until filled. Students accepted to our Preparation Phase will be guaranteed their spot in the Clinical Phase.**
