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.

*Please note that the deadline to apply has been extended to July 15th, 2020 as approved by the Undergraduate Nursing Department in order to accommodate those affected by COVID-19.
