FastBacc Program

The FastBacc program is a 12 month accelerated program designed for individuals desiring a career change who have completed a bachelor’s degree in a non-nursing discipline. The academically rigorous full-time program begins each summer with a combination of teaching methodologies including traditional classroom, on-line courses, clinical and lab experiences and hybrid interactive learning courses. Admission requirements include all the prerequisites of the traditional undergraduate nursing program, interview and a baccalaureate degree in another field of study.
