Earn Your Accelerated BSN Online in Kentucky

Online accelerated BSN programs in Kentucky are a fast and convenient way to start your new career in nursing. If you already hold a bachelor’s degree, an ABSN program prepares you to pass the NCLEX-RN with a BSN degree in less than two years.

Online ABSN programs can allow you to study without moving or commuting to a college campus. However, many online hybrid ABSN programs require weekly on-campus lab work and clinical experiences at fixed locations near campus.

There are currently no online or hybrid ABSN programs offered by Kentucky-based schools. This means that if you want to enroll in an online nursing program in Kentucky, you would need to make weekly trips, or possibly even move, out of state.

Our clinical placement department will work to assist you in finding a local site for your clinical hours. Our on-campus residency is only one week at our Philadelphia, PA campus, rather than weekly throughout the program.
