Pre-licensure Accelerated Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing (ABSN)

The Pre-licensure Accelerated Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing is designed to provide students the foundation necessary for a career in nursing.

Pre-licensure Accelerated Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing Overview

Become a nurse sooner and complete the program up to a year earlier than completing a RN license and bachelor's degree separately. Our online classes and clinical experiences offered in various care settings maximize time and give future nurses the experience necessary to enter the workforce. Brandman’s career-centric courses are taught by practicing clinical faculty to prepare students to pass the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) for RNs.

Brandman’s ABSN program:

  • May be completed in as little as 3 years
  • Is taught by practicing nurses
  • Offers rolling admissions for Fall, Spring & Summer trimesters
  • Prepares students to sit for the National Council Licensure examination (NCLEX)

It was a big sacrifice with two daughters in college and it takes persistence and patience. Brandman is very supportive of students. They push their students in the right direction and motivate them. It was a positive experience and coming from a family of nurses, that’s saying a lot.
Lorelei P. | Doctorate of Nursing,
Both the faculty and staff members have been very supportive in every way, manifesting their core values in action. Students are accorded the same respect and dignity regardless of their cultural background, color, gender or religion.
