12-month program finishes in December
Jefferson School of Nursing at Thomas Jefferson University announces a January 2014 start term for its FACT (Facilitated Academic Coursework Track) nursing program. This is an additional option for students pursuing the 12-month accelerated BSN program for highly motivated students who have a baccalaureate degree. Previously, students could matriculate into the FACT program only in May.
“This new start term affords the opportunity for interested second-degree students to begin the program without waiting one year following graduation with their first degree,” says Beth Ann Swan, PhD, CRNP, FAAN, Jefferson School of Nursing Dean.
The application deadline for the January start is September 15, 2013. Application instructions can be found on the Jefferson School of Nursing website at www.jefferson.edu/nursing.
