ABSN Admission Requirements

Our second-degree accelerated nursing program is for motivated individuals who want to quickly transition into the field of nursing. To be eligible for our 16-month ABSN program, you must:

  • Hold a non-nursing bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited institution.
  • Have a minimum overall cumulative 2.8 GPA or a 3.0 GPA for the last 60 credit hours completed. (Note: Students seeking contingent admission must have a cumulative 2.8 GPA in their prior degree.)
  • Complete all of the ABSN prerequisite courses within the grade and GPA requirements.

We also seek students who have a true compassion for others and believe in holistic care, which focuses on treating the mind, body, and spirit. Plus, it is our belief that every great nurse is:

  • A good listener and communicator,
  • Highly empathetic and patient,
  • Extremely detailed and organized,
  • Level-headed in high-stress situations.
