Three for All

Receive Your BSN, MSN and certification in 3 years, from one seamless program

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% 1 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.

  1. After just 16 months, you’ll take the registered nurse licensing examination (NCLEX), which 100% of Regis students passed in 2019.
  2. You’ll work with a team of seasoned, well-connected coordinators who will arrange your undergraduate clinical placement. By year’s end, you’ll earn your bachelor of science.
  3. When you’re working on your MSN, you’ll collaborate with coordinators on securing your clinical placement. In your third year, you’ll have a full or part-time option, enabling you to hit the ground running and begin your career as a part-time R.N.

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.
