For some who dream of becoming a nurse, traditional nursing education programs may be daunting or just not a good fit with their life circumstances. Offering alternative program options allows those who wouldn’t otherwise pursue their Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) to achieve their goal of becoming a nurse.
Nurse.org recently recognized the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh Accelerated BSN Option as the second best online nursing program in the nation for non-nurses.
As the first program of its kind to be developed in the United States, the Accelerated BSN Option was designed for individuals who already have a bachelor’s degree and are seeking a BSN. Available to students in any location, the rigorous curriculum allows for non-nurses to achieve their dream of becoming a nurse in just 12 months.
The program was recognized due to the entirely online theory courses, clinical rotations offered in or near a student’s home community and the length of time it takes to complete the program. Cost of attendance, admission requirements and additional accolades that the program has received also were taken into consideration.
