16-Month* ABSN Program in Phoenix and Tucson

Our Accelerated BSN program in Arizona is your path to earning your nursing degree from a respected institution in as few as 16 months*. With three start dates a year, choose a location nearest you.

Our full-time accelerated nursing program expands on the non-nursing college credits you’ve already earned so you can begin your nursing coursework sooner. Eligible students must have 60 or more college credits to enroll in the program or hold an existing bachelor’s degree (requirements vary by ABSN location).

GCU’s ABSN program in Arizona consists of:

  • Online courses that build a foundational knowledge of the nursing profession.
  • Nursing skills and immersive simulation experiences that challenge students to apply the skills they’ve learned during coursework at one of our learning sites in Tucson or Phoenix, AZ.
  • Clinical rotations that offer networking opportunities and allow students to gain hands-on experience at top Arizona healthcare organizations.

Upon graduation of the Accelerated BSN program, you’ll be prepared to sit confidently for the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN®) and start your career as a practice-ready nurse.

So, if you’re ready to start your nursing journey, we’re ready to accelerate your nursing career. Talk to one of our knowledgeable admissions counselors to find out which of our three start dates each year is right for you.
