Prospective students with a bachelor's degree in another field can apply to the Accelerated 15-month Program provided they have successfully completed the following nursing prerequisite courses prior to starting the program: nutrition, chemistry (with lab), statistics, anatomy and physiology (I and II), microbiology, and developmental psychology. The 15-month program is completed in four consecutive semesters of full-time study and can begin in the fall (September) or spring (January) semester. By the end of the accelerated program, you will be prepared to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN) to obtain licensure.
Accelerated Baccalaureate students are admitted to Meyers as undergraduates with 44 advanced standing credits in the liberal arts and 20 advanced credits in the sciences--based on credits earned while obtaining a bachelor’s degree plus additional prerequisite requirements completed prior to matriculation.
