BSNA Program Details FAQs

There are two start dates per year: the April and October terms.

The program takes one year and is offered in four 12-week terms.

  •  The terms are January, April, July, and October.
  •  Check the Undergraduate Calendar for exact term start dates.

Due to the rigorous and accelerated nature of this program, students are strongly discouraged from working or maintaining any employment while completing this program.


The BSNA schedule is divided into three educational components: Class, Clinical, and Online Coursework.

  • With the exception of the first term, two days a week will be devoted to in-person learning activities (class time) on campus in Trenton, from about 9:00am to 4:00pm.
  • One day a week will be devoted to clinical/simulation lab experiences from 6:45am to 7:00pm.
  • Sometimes an additional day of class time or clinical/simulation time will be necessary. 
  • Students are responsible for completing online coursework (discussions, forum posts, papers) on their own time.

We currently have two start dates, one in April and one in October.

  • Applications and official transcripts are due February 1st for the April cohort. 
  • Applications and official transcripts are due July 1st for the October cohort.
