The need for highly qualified nurses continues to grow in the United States. And alongside it, so does the demand for educated nurses who hold a bachelor’s degree or higher.
Perhaps that is why you are here. It has been a long-time dream of yours to become a nurse, but the field has quickly become a competitive landscape. Nurses all over the country are turning their RN degrees into BSN degrees, and their BSN degrees into MSN degrees, and securing amazing jobs in this in-demand field. Even individuals who already have a bachelor’s degree in a non-related field are going back to school to earn their ABSN and become a nurse.
Career-focused nursing degrees
With the increasing emphasis on higher education in nursing, there is no doubt that earning an RN degree, BSN degree, MSN degree, or Accelerated BSN degree is your best bet to increasing job prospects and landing the career of your dreams. So how do you get there? How do you manage it all – college, clinicals, a part-time or full-time job?
An accelerated nursing program (whether studying part or full-time year-round) may just be the type of nursing program you’re looking for. This style of fast-track learning offers students like you an avenue to pursue intensive nursing courses over a much shorter period of time (year-round as opposed to taking summers off). But what if there was an accelerated nursing program that was also willing to work with you, with your schedule, on your terms?
As an accredited nursing school in Connecticut, that’s what Goodwin College aims to do. We tailor our accelerated nursing programs to meet the different needs of our students. No matter if you are an aspiring or seasoned nurse, we certainly have a nursing program for you.

Maybe you’re in the market for an MSN degree, because you’re an RN who earned a BSN degree, or you’re an RN with bachelor’s degree in another field – either is great! Our MSN program is the perfect next step for you. Our MSN program can be completed fully online, in as few as 20 months part-time. As you know, taking classes fully online can be a huge time saver and perfect for your busy schedule.
