Accelerated BSN

The Accelerated BSN is an intense 15-month, on-campus option for students who hold a bachelor’s degree or higher from an accredited college or university in a field other than nursing. Courses during the 15 months focus on developing nursing knowledge and skills needed to enter nursing practice upon graduation as a BSN prepared nurse.

A bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) degree from the MUSSON will prepare you for a career in nursing, one of the fastest growing, most trusted professions in our country. Learn from outstanding, supportive faculty who are leaders in nursing.
