What is a Fast-Track Nursing Program?
A fast-track nursing program is also known as an accelerated nursing program, or direct entry nursing program.
A fast-track nursing program is designed for students who want to become a licensed Registered Nurse, but already have their bachelor’s degree in another field. Fast-track nursing programs can be offered at both bachelor’s and master’s degree levels.
How fast is a fast-track nursing program?
The completion rate of fast-track nursing programs varies per educational institution and transferable credits from previous learning experiences. However, if a student is enrolled full-time, a typical fast-track nursing program can take between 11-18 months.
If a student is enrolled part-time in a fast-track nursing program, it may generally take the student up to 22 months to earn their degree.
Fast-track nursing programs can be offered on-campus, online, or in hybrid and evening and weekend options.
How do I know if a fast-track nursing program is a right fit for me?
Ideal students for fast-track nursing programs are academically ambitious, those seeking professional advancement, or those seeking a meaningful career change for their future.
