16-Month* ABSN Program

Our Accelerated BSN program puts a respected nursing education well within your reach in as few as 16 months*, with three start dates a year at four convenient locations.

The full-time program builds on your non-nursing college education to make the accelerated transition into nursing possible. Eligible students must have 60 or more transferable college credits to enter the program or hold an existing bachelor’s degree. Admissions requirements may vary by location. GCU’s ABSN program follows a fast-paced sequence of:

  • Online courses that teach the fundamentals and theories of the profession.
  • Nursing skills and Immersive Simulation experiences that focus on applied learning and practice at one of our learning sites in Arizona, Nevada, or Utah.
  • Clinical rotations that provide real-world experience across the continuum of care.

Upon your completion of the Accelerated BSN program, you’ll be prepared to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN®) with confidence and enter the profession as a practice-ready nurse.

So, if you’re ready to start nursing school, we’re ready to accelerate your nursing career. Enroll for one of three start dates each year at one of our convenient site locations near you.
