Accelerated Second Degree BSN Program

Mason’s Accelerated Second Degree BSN program is a 12-month, full-time, pre-licensure program for applicants who will have earned a bachelor’s degree prior to the start of the program. The program provides successful applicants an opportunity to experience nursing in a variety of clinical settings throughout the National Capitol area. The program admits once a year in fall and spaces are limited, therefore the application process is highly competitive. 

Be aware meeting eligibility guidelines does not guarantee admission into the program. It is extremely important for all applicants to have a backup plan.

We recommend that all applicants review our Information Session presentation to learn more about important application guidelines and expectations:
