Program Overview

The Full-time Accelerated Coursework Track (FACT) 2-Year program is designed for students who already hold a bachelor's degree in a field other than nursing. This program allows students to complete a BSN in two academic years of full-time study. Students must have a bachelor’s degree and specific college credits to start the program.

Students earn a BSN and nine (9) MSN credits in two academic years. Course content and clincial experiences are scheduled to allow time to integrate theoretical concepts and constructs into clinical practice.

Jefferson Nursing students learn clinical skills in a risk-free, simulated-patient environment that is one of the nation’s leading centers of its kind. Combined with their clinical practice at Jefferson Health Hospitals, our BSN students graduate with far more hours of clinical experience than is professionally required.

Admission to the FACT program includes guaranteed admission to any MSN or DNP specialty* (excluding Nurse Anesthesia), valid for up to two years from completing the BSN with a minimum 3.20 cumulative GPA. The MSN and DNP programs can be completed either part-time or full-time.

FACT/Midwifery Program Option

The MS in Midwifery prepares graduates to provide midwifery care, including primary care of women and neonates, with an emphasis on health promotion and disease prevention across the lifespan.  Graduates are eligible to earn the Certified Nurse-Midwife (CNM) credential from the American Midwifery Certification Board. FACT students who successfully complete the midwifery admission/interview process are assured admission to the MS in Midwifery program following the BSN portion of the FACT program.**

* Restrictions apply for the neonatal and adult/gerontology acute care nurse practitioner specialties.  International students should take note of special program limitations.  

** Progression into the Midwifery program requires successful completion of the BSN (minimum GPA may apply) and passing the NCLEX to obtain RN licensure. Due to VISA restrictions, the M.S. in Midwifery is only able to accept U.S. citizens and permanent residents at this time.
