Program Information

Degrees Offered:

Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN)

Format: Campus

Program Description:

University of Detroit Mercy's accelerated second degree option in nursing allows individuals with a college degree in a related field to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing in 12 months. The program is designed specifically for students who already hold a minimum of a bachelor's degree. The intensive program has a cohort (all students take the same courses at the same time) curriculum totaling 58 credits. Students attend classes full time for one full year beginning in January and May. While the BSN accelerated program incorporates the same philosophy, conceptual framework and program objectives as UDM's traditional undergraduate nursing pre-licensure program, it comprises a different sequence of courses. The program recognizes an individual's past experiences and builds upon those strengths. The BSN accelerated program provides the appropriate learning environment for individuals to acquire a nursing degree efficiently and effectively.
