dcsimg Accelerated On Campus

16 Months Full Time

On campus accelerated program was created in 1994. It provides highly qualified students with a previous degree the opportunity to complete a BSN in as little as 16 months. During the program, students finish the same amount of coursework as traditional students do in three years.

Face to Face Learning

The on campus accelerated program has face-to-face courses offered on Marian University’s main campus in Indianapolis, Indiana. The initial spring and summer semester courses are between five and 16 weeks in length and the final two semesters, fall and spring, will be traditional 16 week semesters. Students experience off campus clinical experiences at a variety of different healthcare agencies in the area. In addition they will also be part of simulated experiences in our Louis C. Gatto Nursing Resource Center.
