Changes to RN-BSN and Accelerated Offerings

In an effort to assure the highest quality programs for our students, the Department of Nursing is taking steps to enhance the RN-BSN and Accelerated tracks in the undergraduate program. No applications will be accepted for these programs for the fall 2020 or spring 2021 sessions. We welcome students to apply to the traditional nursing track to obtain a BSN degree. Students currently enrolled in the RN-BSN and Accelerated tracks will continue to completion of their degrees. If you have questions or need assistance, please contact the Nursing Department at 301-860-3201.
