Accelerated RN to BSN Track

Bachelor of Science in Nursing

Holy Family University and its School of Nursing and Allied Health Professionals recognize the diverse educational and clinical backgrounds of registered nurses and respect their prior learning and educational achievements.

The Accelerated RN to BSN nursing curriculum focuses on the development of management and leadership skills, culture-sensitive health care, individual and family assessment skills, and research in nursing practice.

Flexible scheduling may include classes that primarily meet once a week, in the evenings, for eight weeks.

Holy Family offers a generous transfer policy. Up to a maximum of 75 credits may be accepted from a 2 year institution and/or 90 credits from a 4 year institution.

Students transferring in the maximum amount of credits may finish the program in as little as 15 months.
