The BSNA program helped me to prioritize, think on my feet and manage my time. As a nurse, you literally never know what’s coming through the door, the Accelerated BSN Program laid the groundwork for me to handle that. It also gave me the impetus to further my education.”

I am a huge proponent of exposure to diverse ideas and experiences. I also believe the single most important aspect of the Accelerated BSN program was how much the nurse educators and staff fostered the values of free thinking, competency and independence in aspiring nurses.”
