Accelerated Nursing Program

This Accelerated Nursing Program is designed for those who already hold a bachelor's degree in a field other than nursing, offering them an opportunity to enter into this highly sought-after field. Students enrolled in the Accelerated Nursing Program can earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) degree in just 18 months, all while participating in a full-time cohort of like-minded classmates who also feel called to care.

Approximately half of the course work will take place on the Hammond campus and the other half will be completed at the Baton Rouge Center.
