One Goal. One Year. One Choice.

Creighton University College of Nursing's Accelerated Program is designed for students who already have a non-nursing bachelor's degree. When you choose this program, you can earn your Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree in just 12 months. You will attend class full-time as this program offers a rigorous one-year curriculum.

Creighton University College of Nursing, has been preparing BSN graduates using an accelerated curriculum for more than 30 years.  Creighton University is one of the finest Jesuit, Catholic universities in the United States.  Accelerated Nursing Program graduates consistently exceed national pass rates on the Registered Nurse (RN) licensure examination.

Creighton admits students into the Accelerated Program on a rolling basis.  As soon as an application is complete, it is reviewed by our admissions committee.  Admissions decisions are made quickly, and our programs may fill rapidly.  This is why it is important to apply as early as possible. Each class has an established maximum enrollment of 48 - 56 students. 

Our Accelerated Nursing Program is offered in Hastings and Omaha.  Classes start each January and August on the Omaha campus. Classes on the Creighton University Mary Lanning Campus in Hastings, Nebraska begin only in August. Nursing courses at the Hastings campus are conducted through transmission to the Omaha campus.
