The evening and weekend schedule

After submitting your application and official transcripts, you'll meet with an academic advisor who will answer all of your questions. They'll guide you through the application process, review of transfer credits, registration, and selection of prerequisite courses prior to being eligible for selection as a nursing major.

The accelerated program features eight six-week sessions per year. Courses meet either Monday and Wednesday, or Tuesday and Thursdays from 6:45-9:55 pm. Clinicals for nursing courses are held during the day, and you'll know that schedule well in advance.

Career outlook

Overall job opportunities for registered nurses are expected to continue to be excellent, particularly for those with a BS in nursing. There is some variation in employment opportunities based on geographic location, but the employment rate for RNs is expected to grow much faster than the average for other professions though 2016, because of new jobs being created and the need to replace experienced nurses who are retiring.
