Accelerated Nursing Program

Earn A BSN Degree in only 15 Months

Now is the time to register for the Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) option.

Often equated to a second degree program, the accelerated nursing degree track is open to individuals who already have a bachelor's degree (of any kind) who wish to pursue a career in nursing. The Walsh accelerated BSN program is accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC).
