Fitzpatrick College of Nursing and Saint Joseph's University Sign Affiliation Agreement

Villanova University’s M. Louise Fitzpatrick College of Nursing is pleased to announce that it has signed an affiliation agreement with Saint Joseph’s University (SJU) that will provide priority admission consideration for SJU students in its Second Degree Accelerated BSN program. The second degree program incorporates all of the standard components of Villanova’s nursing program in a concentrated timeframe. Students may choose to enroll in a 14-Month Express Track or a 23-Month Flex Track.

A minimum of five qualified SJU students annually will be offered admission to this second degree option. To qualify for consideration, students must meet GPA and prerequisite requirements and apply by deadlines outlined on Villanova Nursing’s website. Students may identify their interest in this option in their first or second year so that they can begin working with the Villanova Nursing representatives early in the process.

“We look forward to continuing our longstanding relationship with Saint Joseph’s University through this new agreement. It’s been a delight to watch Saint Joseph’s graduates fulfill their career goals in nursing over the years through their success in our BSN program,” says Donna S. Havens, PhD, RN, FAAN, Connelly Endowed Dean and Professor of the Fitzpatrick College of Nursing.

Villanova Nursing’s Accelerated BSN Program for College Graduates is approved by the Pennsylvania State Board of Nursing and is fully accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.
