Accelerated Option BSN (AO BSN)
The U.S. Department of Labor’s growth outlook for RN jobs by the year 2024 is more than double the growth rate for all occupations. It’s why many are considering a career – or a career change – in nursing. And it’s why FIU Nursing created the Accelerated Option Bachelor of Science in Nursing (AO BSN).
This program is uniquely designed for people who hold a bachelor’s degree in another field. The AO BSN is comprised of three (3) semesters of full-time coursework, beginning with an intensive mini-semester of nursing fundamentals immediately prior to the start of the program.
Students are admitted into the AO BSN program once a year in the fall semester and begins during the fall B session.
