Designed for aspiring nurses who already hold a baccalaureate degree in a non-nursing major, the accelerated BSN program allows students to graduate with a BSN in just 14 months.

Offered in partnership with Seton Hall University, this 61-credit program is run exclusively at the Georgian Court campus in Lakewood, New Jersey. Check out our frequently asked questions for more information.

Second degree baccalaureate graduates are prepared to practice nursing in a variety of settings, which may include ambulatory care, acute care hospitals, long-term care facilities and hospices and schools. Moreover, the baccalaureate degree in nursing prepares graduates to continue education on a graduate level. Graduates are eligible to sit for the NCLEX-R.N.

All Seton Hall nursing curricula are subject to change and you are encouraged to verify this information in the Seton Hall Undergraduate Catalog.

In the beginning it was really, really difficult, but as I came out of my shell, I found support in reaching out to people on campus and building relationships. I joined in group texts, chats about homework and labs, and carpooled to clinicals at the local hospital. Although all of us in the nursing program had different struggles, we learned to support each other. That’s what carried me through: I met people who made me believe in myself.
