Program Title
Nursing, One-Year Registered Nurse (Bridge) track, A.S.N.
Program Description

The Bridge track of the nursing program affords LPNs, paramedics, and respiratory therapists advanced placement and an accelerated, one-day-per-week program. This track recognizes that these health care practitioners already have a knowledge base that will allow them to succeed in an RN program at a faster pace. The program requires that students have completed their entire core coursework required for the associate degree in nursing program. Upon completion of these classes, students take three semesters of nursing courses. This pace is challenging but very appealing to working health professionals. Graduates earn an Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) degree and are eligible to sit for the NCLEX-RN examination to earn their RN license. This program dovetails into the Nursing, RN-to-BSN Completion track, BSN.

Pre-licensure ASN/BSN nursing (PNUR/NURS) courses completed by students at other institutions do not transfer to ABAC.
