Be a Nurse in 16 Months with Marian University’s Accelerated Nursing Programs

Whether you’re interested in making a career change or growing your education beyond your current bachelor’s degree, the accelerated nursing programs at Marian University can prepare you for the career you’ve always dreamed of.

Our Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (ABSN) program uses a combination of online courses, hands-on practice, and hospital clinical rotations* to prepare nurses for healthcare careers as rich and dynamic as the industry itself. Best of all, these segments run concurrently so you can finish your degree faster.

We currently offer programs in Indianapolis and Nashville that prepare you for a nursing career in just 16 months of professional nursing study.**

For almost 40 years, Marian University, a nonprofit organization, has taken the lead on preparing nurses for professional nursing practice. We’re proud to offer baccalaureate nursing programs that frame industry theory and fundamentals within a Catholic worldview.

This is the year to change your life. Learn more about our Indianapolis accelerated nursing program and our Nashville accelerated nursing program today.

* Because hands-on practice and clinical rotations are built into our BSN programs, students should live in the geographic area associated with their respective program or be willing to relocate to that area.

** 16 months of professional nursing study assumes completion of nursing prerequisite courses.
