Second Degree Option
University 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 in Nursing (BSN) degree 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 August. Application and submission of all supplemental application materials are strongly encouraged 5-6 months ahead of planned entry term.
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.
All prospective and current applicants are encouraged to attend an information session. Often, individuals attend more than one! A wealth of information is provided during these important meetings including clinical placements and participation requirements, financial aid, question and answer opportunities, and more.
