Considering a career change to nursing? Explore this 15-month BSN program if you already have a bachelor’s degree.
If you hold a bachelor's degree in another field and want to enter nursing, the Second Degree Accelerated Program (SDAP) will get you there. This 15-month program includes all the courses of a fully approved and accredited Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program in an accelerated format. After successful completion of this accelerated nursing degree program, you will be eligible to sit for the RN licensing exam (NCLEX).
Year after year, 100% of Ursuline SDAP students pass the national RN licensing exam on their first try. This means you'll learn the skills and concepts that matter most in the nursing profession.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis for cohorts that begin in January, May, and August. To be considered, applicants must have a 2.5 or above from their graduating institution. They also must have passed all the science prerequisites within two attempts earning a grade of “C” or higher. A withdrawal or a “W” is considered an attempt. See the full prerequisite list under course requirements.
The Breen School of Nursing is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) and approved by the Ohio Board of Nursing.
