Misericordia University’s Accelerated Nursing Program near Pittsburgh

We designed our Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (ABSN) program near Pittsburgh, PA with career changers and recent college graduates in mind. Building upon the University’s tradition of serving the community for more than 90 years, our ABSN program helps you earn your Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree on an accelerated timeline by leveraging your existing, non-nursing education.

Our full-time accelerated BSN program for non-nurses combines online coursework, onsite skills labs, and clinical rotations at top area hospitals and clinical agencies. While intense, our accredited, hybrid ABSN curriculum lays the academic and clinical groundwork necessary for qualified students to sit for the National Council Licensure Exam (NCLEX-RN®) and enter the profession as competent and compassionate registered nurses.

What else sets our accelerated nursing program near Pittsburgh apart? It offers:

  • Accessible enrollment to a quality nursing education with three start dates per year, no current waitlist, and no entrance exam.
  • A supportive, values-based learning environment with a nursing education center near Pittsburgh.
  • A rigorous, hybrid CCNE-accredited curriculum from an established program.
