The Second Degree Accelerated BSN ("BSNExpress") is a 14-month second degree program for college graduates with a bachelor's degree in another discipline that incorporates all the standard components of the nursing program in a concentrated timeframe. This program -- which is approved by the Pennsylvania State Board of Nursing and fully accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education -- usually begins on the third Monday in May of each year and ends in August of the following year. While the program is intense, students are able to take advantage of some of the same opportunities that are available to other BSN students.
The deadlines for application are:
- June 30: Early Acceptance Deadline
- October 1: Standard Decision Deadline
