Accelerated Nursing Programs Overview

Our ABSN programs in New York and Florida make starting an in-demand nursing career more accessible than ever. Because we offer three start dates per year at each location, we’re able to accept more qualified students than other nursing schools.

While it requires dedication and motivation, it is possible to earn a B.S. in Nursing in as few as 16 months through our CCNE-accredited nursing program. Upon graduation from the Utica ABSN program, you’ll have all the nursing knowledge you need to sit for the nursing licensure exam and join the nursing workforce with confidence.

How the Utica ABSN Programs Work

Depending in which program location you enroll, the Utica ABSN program puts your previous non-nursing bachelor’s degree or college credits to work toward a bachelor’s of science in nursing in as few as 16 months. Our accelerated, full-time program features a three-part hybrid curriculum:

  • Online nursing theory courses lay the groundwork for your nursing education via a dynamic online learning platform.
  • On-site nursing simulation and skills labs provide hands-on learning with faculty in a risk-free mock clinical setting.
  • Clinical rotations at top area hospitals where our ABSN sites are located allow you to care for patients in advanced medical settings.

While our rigorous curriculum will require a lot of time and commitment, our dedicated faculty and staff are available to help you stay on track.

Please note, however, that before you can enroll in the Utica ABSN program, you may need to complete prerequisite courses, which you can take 100% online via our early-admission Prerequisite Priority (PREP) program.
