If you’re thinking of becoming a nurse but your bachelor’s degree is from a different profession, you might feel like the clock is ticking. Nearly 89%* of healthcare providers expressed “a strong preference for BSN program graduates.” These days, RNs are competing with seasoned professionals who earned a bachelor’s degree or even took the next step and pursued their Master’s, making them eligible for more jobs, higher salaries and greater opportunities for advancement. A BSN makes you immediately competitive for career opportunities and puts you on a path toward an MSN that can further enhance your undergraduate degree.
Which is why Regis College developed an accelerated direct entry option for non-nursing college graduates interested in entering the field of nursing. The program gives you the ability to earn a bachelor's and master's degree with certification all in only three years with flexible day and evening course options.
In the interest of your time, we’ve also kept the application simple and straightforward. Your intended track is part of the process but will not commit you to a particular specialty.
