ABSN Curriculum

The ABSN@UST program is designed to set you up for success as a practice-ready nurse, on an accelerated timeline.

You will complete 58 credit hours spread over three full-time semesters during our 12-month ABSN program. Given that the program takes everything that a traditional on-campus program would offer and packs it into a shorter timeframe, you will need to be dedicated and determined to complete our rigorous coursework and ensure success.

The ABSN@UST curriculum is designed to give students a solid nursing education that will prepare them to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN®), which all prospective nurses must pass in order to be licensed in their state.
