Accelerated BA/BS/BSN with Villanova
Arcadia University offers a 4+1 pre-nursing program in affiliation with Villanova. The four-year traditional pre-licensure Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) is divided into two phases: the prerequisite phase and the professional nursing major. You complete prerequisite coursework at Arcadia University in science, humanities and related disciplines that lay the foundation for your professional studies. The professional nursing major, which is done with Villanova, consists of four semesters of nursing theory and clinical coursework.
The BSNExpress, which is approved by the Pennsylvania State Board of Nursing and fully accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, begins in May and ends in August of the following year. While the track is intense, students are able to take advantage of the same opportunities that are available to other BSN students.
