The FastBacc program was created for students who already have a bachelor's degree in another discipline and are interested in an alternative way to achieve a degree in nursing. This is a full-time, 12-month program, and the courses are fast-paced and require students to spend a significant amount of time each week studying and preparing for class. Classes begin in the middle of May and continue until the following May. Students graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing (BSN) and are eligible to sit for the NCLEX, a standardized exam used by state boards of nursing to grant individuals licensing to become a Registered Nurse(RN).
Please visit the FastBacc Admission Requirements for specific application details.
The traditional program is intended for both students pursuing their first bachelor's degree, as well as those who would like to earn a second degree at a slower pace than FastBacc. This is a full-time, two-year program. Students have the option of completing their prerequisite courses on our main Baylor University campus in Waco or at another accredited college or university. Upon completion of the program, students will earn their Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing (BSN) and be eligible to sit for the NCLEX, a standardized exam used by state boards of nursing to grant individuals licensing to become a Registered Nurse (RN).
