With your degree in nursing, you can help meet the nationwide demand for compassionate, well-trained nurses. Our Nursing (Accelerated) Degree at Pace University  meets this demand by providing the opportunity to complete a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN). You will also have the option to apply for one of our MS programs following graduation. . 

Career Outcomes

After completing study, the student receives a BSN and is eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses. 

The program consists of 50 or 52 credits in the nursing major that includes an opportunity to take a 3-credit undergraduate or graduate nursing elective course. 

The graduate course would be double-counted for the MS degree, should you continue into an LSN graduate program.

General Requirements

  • Admission of students who have attended other nursing programs (without failing a class or being academically dismissed) will be considered on a case by case basis. These students may be required to provide additional application materials e.g., letter(s) of reference from didactic and clinical faculty.
  • The program is an intensive, rigorous program, so students must plan to consistently study to be successful. The full-time program requires students to dedicate as many as 36 hours of weekly class and clinical hours, not including study hours. We encourage students to think about personal and professional commitments and the significant amount of time necessary to devote to the program on a daily basis. Students taking 12 or more credits (one-year program) should not work.
  • Nursing students are required to undergo background checks
