Creighton accelerated nursing programs are an ideal choice for anyone that has already gone to college and earned a degree in another field but now want to become a nurse. At Creighton, it is not necessary to begin at the starting point the way you did when you first attended college.
If you already have a bachelor’s degree, a Creighton accelerated nursing program will only take you 12 months to complete, and you will have a bachelor’s degree in nursing. Having a BSN will open many opportunities for you as the field of nursing is growing rapidly.
Creighton Accelerated Nursing: What You Will Study
The 12 month program is divided into three semesters. The first semester you will take six classes for a total of 19 hours each week. The courses will be Health Assistance and Health Assistant Lab, two hours of lecture and one hour of lab work. Pathophysiology for three hours a week. Care Management and Outcomes Improvement for Health Promotion for five hours, Practicum for Care Management for five hours, and Nursing Management of Pharmacotherapy for three hours. This first trimester can be the most difficult as it lays the foundation for the rest of the program. The second and third trimesters are 19 and 20 hours each week. A full time commitment will be required to successfully complete the program.
