On Campus Accelerated Track to Obtain your BSN

16 Months Full-Time

Our on-campus accelerated track was created in 1994. It provides highly qualified students with a previous bachelor's 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 nursing track has face-to-face courses offered on Marian University’s main campus in Indianapolis, Indiana. Each semester is 16 weeks in length, with courses ranging from five weeks to 16 weeks. Students experience off-campus clinical experiences at a variety of healthcare agencies in the area. In addition, they will also be part of simulated experiences in our Louis C. Gatto Nursing Resource Center.
