The Benefits of Fast-Track Nursing Programs

There are many professionals taking advantage of the shifting employment market, making this an opportune time for career improvement, whether that’s changing your profession or climbing up the professional ladder.  

This movement has allowed many Americans to explore new career paths and opportunities. The pandemic opened our eyes to the ongoing need for health care professionals across our nation. For those thinking of changing their profession to nursing, this may seem like a time-consuming, multi-year commitment. This level of dedication may be true if you are considering three-to-four-year programs. Instead, fast-track nursing programs can be the proper solution for flooding the market with nurses, combining the need for efficiency and education, which leads to rapid employment. 

At Goodwin, we offer several certificates and degree opportunities to become a nurse. Our Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (ABSN) program combines the need for flexibility and education. An accelerated curriculum removes the general education courses and focuses on the fundamentals with hands-on coursework and clinicals to prepare you for a high-stakes profession. This is crucial for students in this program who’ve already earned a bachelor’s degree in a different field of study. Learning a new career doesn’t mean you need to restart your education from scratch. Our accelerated fast-track nursing programs provide an intensive, detailed experience that prepares anyone for a first day with real-world skills and understanding. 

“Goodwin prepared me for my career as an RN by offering wonderful clinical site opportunities. I was able to learn in a variety of settings including skilled nursing facilities, hospitals, schools, and clinics,” a Goodwin alumna, Jamie Aniskoff, RN, shares. 

Goodwin’s RN-to-BSN program benefits registered nurses going after more in their careers. There are several positions available to RNs with bachelor’s degrees and now is as good of a time as any to go after them. Nurses can rarely afford to take time off to pursue another degree, so we design our nursing classes to be completed within their busy schedules. Showcasing day, evening, and weekend classes and offering online coursework make a fast-track curriculum achievable. 

As Kathleen Gaines, MSN, RN, BA, CBC, writes for, “Nursing isn’t just a profession, it’s a calling. It’s heartening to know they are not without hope.” Educating and preparing our incoming and veteran nurses is vital to repairing the nursing disparities, it is essential to make sure our nurses are in turn cared for.  

When in Goodwin’s classroom, in-person and virtually, our staff and faculty take care to provide support, counseling, and assistance for our students. If you are ready to begin or build upon your nursing experience, reach out to our admissions team today!
