Accelerated Second Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing
USJ announces a new undergraduate opportunity– the Accelerated Second Degree in Nursing (ASD) – a 15-month program scheduled to begin in the summer of 2013. The ASD is ideal for students who hold a bachelor’s degree and are looking to transition into a professional field with vast employment opportunities. The program builds on a student’s previous education and professional experiences and prepares graduates to pursue admission into Nurse Practitioner programs.
Designed to move students into the professional arena, the ASD program offers the best of a USJ education:
- outstanding faculty
- small classes
- hands-on clinical practice
- clinical placements in major hospitals and health care facilities
- USJ students historically achieve strong results on the NCLEX exam, typically higher than the state and national averages.
