A new program at Felician College allows students who have already obtained a bachelor’s or master’s to pursue an accelerated nursing degree.
Upon completion of the full-time, 18-month accelerated bachelor’s to BSN degree in nursing program, students will be eligible to take the NCLEX-RN examination.
During 12-week sessions, students will complete a variety of classroom and clinical experiences in a collaborative environment. They will also receive support and mentoring from nursing faculty members.
Accelerated nursing programs for adults with non-nursing degrees are “growing nationwide,” according to Dr Muriel Shore, dean of the Division of Nursing and Health Management.
“Given the economy and other factors, many adults are changing careers and are finding the nursing profession very attractive,” she says.
The program, which is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, and approved by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, has open enrollment throughout the year.
Students who choose to enroll in the nursing program must complete 32 credits of prerequisite courses before they can begin their coursework, which includes 72 credits of pre-licensure classes.
