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.
UST nursing graduates are highly sought after upon completion of our programs. Thank you for your interest in our ABSN program—we look forward to working with you on your nursing journey.
