A No-Waitlist Path to Nursing School

We have three locations — near Tampa and Miami in Florida and in Syracuse, New York — that offer an accessible route to a quality nursing education for qualified applicants. Between our three program start dates per year and rolling admission process, we eliminate the waiting period often associated with getting into nursing school.

That means, depending on your desired program site location, if you have at least 65 college credits with a 2.8 cumulative GPA, you can start your ABSN program as soon as you’re ready.

Do you want to lock in your spot in our ABSN program even earlier? If you meet the eligibility requirements and commit to finishing your prerequisites via our PREP program, we can save you a spot in our nursing school for your desired start date.

No matter in which of our program locations you choose to enroll, you can feel confident you’re receiving a quality nursing education from a non-profit institution and an ABSN program today’s healthcare employers respect.
