Welcome to the Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (ABSN) program at the University of St. Thomas Carol and Odis Peavy School of Nursing. The ABSN program was designed as a second-degree track for individuals interested in pursuing a career in nursing over a 12-month timeframe, but it is also open to transfer students as well.

The curriculum prepares students to become holistic caregivers and nursing leaders in an ever-changing healthcare environment. The program is delivered using a hybrid model—online content with onsite testing and laboratory, simulation and clinical experiences.
