Accelerated Nursing Programs 2010-2014

Degree:
Bachelor of Science in Nursing or BSN to Masters in Nursing

 

The Accelerated Bachelor of Science and the Accelerated Bachelor of Science to Masters in Nursing program is designed to allow those students who currently have or will have a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution with a major other than nursing to take the nursing courses required to get the B.S. with a major in nursing and then if a student so desires, to continue into the master level courses that are required to achieve a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner or Certified Nurse Midwifery MS/MN degree.

 

PCC endeavors to create accurate transfer guides for students; however, requirements and equivalencies may change without notice. Students are responsible for working with PCC advisors and advisors at their transfer institution to ensure that their academic plan will meet requirements and timelines.
