Nursing is a deeply rewarding vocation that makes a difference in the lives of patients, families, and communities. The Rutgers School of Nursing–Camden Accelerated Bachelor of Science (ABS) in Nursing program offers a fast-track into the nursing profession for people who hold a bachelor’s or higher degree in a non-nursing major. Our intensive program allows students to complete their degree within 15 months, and students receive the same quality of clinical practice as their counterparts in our traditional Bachelor of Science in Nursing program.
Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing
Students first accelerate through a bachelor’s degree in nursing, get their license to practice, and set themselves up to pursue advanced nursing degrees in clinical practice, research, and administration.
Employers eagerly seek out graduates of accelerated programs because of the strong clinical skills, academic experience, and maturity these students bring to the workplace. Nursing offers a wide variety of career options ranging from entry-level practitioner to doctoral-level researcher. Nurses can practice independently and as members of interdisciplinary health care teams, serve as nurse leaders, or focus their expertise on scientific research, advanced clinical practice, and public policy.
