Undergraduate Program Information

FastBacc BSN

This full-time, 12-month 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. 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.

Please visit the FastBacc Admission Requirements for specific application details.

Traditional Two-Year BSN

This full-time, two year 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. Students have the option of completing their prerequisite courses on our main Baylor University campus in Waco or at another accredited college or university.

Please refer to the Transfer BSN Admission Requirements for more application information.
