If you’re looking to make a difference and save lives on a daily basis while enjoying high job security and impressive benefits, nursing is for you.
It’s no secret that qualified registered nurses are in high demand. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the projected growth of registered nurse jobs by 2029 is 7%, which is faster than the average for all occupations. Registered nurse is also one of the top 50 jobs according to the U.S. News and World Report, 2020.
A BSN will help you to take your career to the next level while making an impact.
Our Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (ABSN) program is designed for career changers, new graduates, and many others who want to get a second bachelor’s degree and become a nurse. Building upon the undergraduate courses that you have already taken, you can jump directly into your nursing courses in the ABSN program.
This full-time, accelerated program located on our Weston, Massachusetts campus takes only 16 months to complete. Upon completion of the program, you’ll be able to sit for the NCLEX examination, become a registered nurse, and immediately enter the workforce.

After graduating from Regis, one of the region's top nursing programs, you are fully prepared to sit for the NCLEX examination and work as a registered nurse as soon as the degree is in hand.
At Regis College, we offer two different degree programs for non-nurse college graduates. The accelerated 16-month BS in Nursing is a full-time, accelerated program located on campus, while the 24-month BS in Nursing is a part-time, fully online program.
Both the curriculum and costs for these two programs are identical. The main difference between the two is simply the pace at which each program can be completed.
There are seven prerequisite courses that may be completed at either Regis or any two or four-year institutions. We encourage applicants to complete four of the seven prerequisite courses (preferably the physical sciences with labs) in order to be reviewed for admission. All prerequisites must be completed with a B- or above before the start of the program.
