Second-Degree Accelerated BSN Program

Methodist College proudly announces the opening of our latest program - the Second-Degree Accelerated BSN, an evening/weekend program for working adults. This program is designed for those who have earned a bachelor's degree in a field other than nursing and wish to become a registered nurse. Upon completion of this degree, graduates are eligible to take the NCLEX-RN exam to be licensed as registered nurses.

The only one of its type in the greater Peoria area, this program requires five consecutive semesters, including summer sessions. The required courses and clinical experiences are only scheduled on evenings and weekends, blending online and classroom learning for coursework, which allows busy, working adult students flexibility in their schedules. It is also the only program of its kind that includes an onsite, hands-on internship, providing the student with real-life learning. Up to 30 students will be admitted each fall and spring semester.
