Accelerated BSN Admissions Overview

The University of St. Thomas Houston Accelerated BSN (ABSN) program can get you on the fast track to a new nursing career in 12 months.

To kick off your journey toward becoming a nurse, you must first meet our accelerated BSN admissions requirements. When those requirements are met, it’s time to chat with a member of our admissions team who will help you apply for your target start date in either January, May or August.

It is certainly possible to work during the program, but it’s not something we generally recommend. Our full-time 12-month accelerated nursing program is rigorous, fast-paced and requires a significant amount of energy and dedication. Your admissions counselor can help you determine what might work best for your situation.
