Second Degree Option

nursing acceleratedUniversity of Detroit Mercy's accelerated second degree option in nursing allows individuals with a college degree in a related field to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing in 13.5 months.

The program is designed specifically for students who already hold a minimum of a bachelor's degree. The intensive program has a cohort (all students take the same courses at the same time).

Students attend classes full time beginning in January, May, or September.

While the BSN accelerated program incorporates the same philosophy, conceptual framework and program objectives as UDM's traditional undergraduate nursing pre-licensure program, it comprises a different sequence of courses.

The program recognizes an individual's past experiences and builds upon those strengths. The BSN accelerated program provides the appropriate learning environment for individuals to acquire a nursing degree efficiently and effectively.
