At SLU, you can earn your bachelor’s or master’s degree at a university with more than half a century in accelerated nursing education.

The Accelerated B.S.N program — the quickest path to becoming a nurse — is completed in less than one year, offering experienced faculty, state-of-the-art nursing labs and tuition scholarship opportunities. The same benefits are also found in the Accelerated M.S.N. program, which you can complete in about 21 months. And since we admit just one cohort per year, we’re able to place great emphasis on developing close relationships with our students — something other nursing programs aren’t always able to do.
