The Marian University and Ascension Saint Thomas ABSN Program
If you already have a bachelor’s degree, our accelerated nursing program for non-nurses in Nashville, Tennessee, makes it possible for you to earn your BSN in as few as 16 months.
Designed specifically for non-nurses, our full-time accelerated second-degree BSN program can fast-track your transition into the field because it offers three start dates per year — in January, May, and August — and leverages your existing degree in another field of study. That means once you complete the prerequisite course requirements for our accelerated nursing program, you can hit the ground running on your professional nursing studies.
Our accelerated second-degree BSN program is also ideal for motivated career changers because it offers:
- A rigorous hybrid curriculum of online classes, on-site labs, and clinical rotations at Ascension Saint Thomas.
- A supportive, faith-based learning environment, grounded in Franciscan values, with small student-to-faculty ratios.
- An accredited nursing school education with consistently above-average first-time NCLEX pass rates.
- An ABSN learning site located inside Saint Thomas West.
