The Second Degree Accelerated Program (SDAP) allows students who have already earned a minimum of a bachelor’s degree in another major to pursue a career in nursing. This is a 13-month program affording students the opportunity to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree. The SDAP offers the traditional BSN program in a compressed time frame. Full-time students begin in early January and complete the program in early February of the following year. The program is designed for students who are able to attend classes fulltime. Students are in class or clinical approximately 40 hours a week and may have evening or weekend lab or clinical hours. It is recommended that students do not work while enrolled in SDAP because the program is rigorous and time-intensive. All admission requirements must be completed before beginning the program.
