Accelerated 2nd Degree Track

Nursing Student PatientIndividuals who have previously earned a bachelor’s degree in a different field of study are eligible to apply for admission to the Accelerated Second Degree Track at Belmont leading to the Bachelor of Science in Nursing.  The accelerated track may be completed in as little as 16 months of full-time study.

Applicants are accepted to begin the accelerated track during the Fall semester only. The School of Nursing strongly recommends that students do not work while enrolled in the accelerated track or work only as much as necessary given the demanding curriculum of the program.
