Main Campus

MAC’s Accelerated BSN was built for those looking for a career change. If you’ve got a bachelor’s degree in any field, you can obtain a Bachelor of Science in Nursing in as few as 16 months.

This program was built around our Traditional BSN program, but offers an accelerated entry point for those who have already completed a bachelor’s degree in any field but are looking to change careers to nursing.

The program includes a mix of classroom work as well as clinicals and work in our Nursing Simulation Center.

Is it right for you?

The program is cohort-based which means that students enter the program as full-time students.

This is a fast-paced, intensive program that requires a strong dedication to the work and critical thinking skills.  

Graduates of this program meet educational eligibility requirements to take the National Certification and Licensure Examination-Registered Nurse (NCLEX-RN).
