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

Offered by Seton Hall University, this 62-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.

Students interested in a four-year BSN program designed for freshmen or a fast-track six-semester B.S.N. program designed for transfer students who do not hold a bachelor’s degree, should click here for information on the Georgian Court–Hackensack Meridian Health School of Nursing B.S.N. program at the Georgian Court University campus in Lakewood.


All Seton Hall nursing curricula are subject to change and you are encouraged to verify this information in the Seton Hall Undergraduate Catalog. Students in the accelerated second degree B.S.N. program will have a slightly modified curriculum plan since they need to take courses during the summer session.

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.
