Accelerated Second Degree BSN Track

Apply to the BSN program’s accelerated degree track

The accelerated second degree track of the Indiana University School of Nursing’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree program is a prelicensure track for those who have a bachelor’s degree in another field but do not have a prior nursing degree. It requires four semesters of full-time study.

Eligibility to apply

To be eligible to apply to the BSN program’s accelerated second degree track, you must be admitted to IU as a degree-seeking student and have graduated from a 120 credit hour accredited baccalaureate degree program in a non-nursing field, including all courses required for admission to the School of Nursing.

Application deadline

Applications are accepted every year from January 15 to March 15 for fall semester admission. The deadline to finish required application courses and to finish your first undergraduate degree is the end of the spring semester prior to admission. Successful applicants will receive notification of conditional admission by June 1.
