The program is comprised of 62 credits of nursing courses, taken in an accelerated program over 14 months. It is a full-time program with classes from Monday through Friday. There are four semesters in total, including a summer semester and an abbreviated final semester. It generally begins in late August (following the Seton Hall academic calendar) and commences the following year in October.

Upon completion of the program, the Seton Hall University College of Nursing will award the Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree.

Transcripts from institutions outside of the United States or Canada must undergo a course-by-course evaluation conducted by an independent credential evaluation agency. These agencies must be members of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES) or the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO). Exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis.
