Online or On-Campus Accelerated Nursing Coursework
No two students learn exactly the same way. That’s exactly why we make our Accelerated BSN courses available in two formats: online and on-campus. Both program options set the foundation for your accelerated nursing education and cover the same comprehensive curriculum and professional preparation on an abbreviated timeline; the only difference is in course delivery.
ABSN Online Courses
Students enrolled in our Hybrid Accelerated 2nd Degree BSN program complete nursing theory coursework online via our Canvas learning management system. While this learning option affords some flexibility over when and where you study course material and submit coursework, you still must turn in assignments on the schedule set forth by your instructors.
Not only does this option offer students the independence to complete coursework whenever they’d like, it also grants them access to materials as often as they need. This means you have unlimited opportunities to review concepts you don’t understand after listening to the video lecture or interactive exercise the first time.
While our Hybrid ABSN program does allow for autonomy in how and when you study, you’ll still have multiple ways to connect with nursing instructors. Our nursing faculty are available to help you navigate nursing topics via online chat through our LMS platform, email, phone, or in-person meetings.
You will also have plenty of face-to-face interactions with instructors through the other components of the Notre Dame ABSN. While you’ll submit nursing coursework online, you’ll sit for proctored exams and attend simulation labs at our ABSN program site. You’ll also work alongside experienced clinical instructors during clinical rotations at top health care facilities across Baltimore.
ABSN On-Campus Courses
If you prefer face-to-face learning with instructors in real time, you must enroll in our on-campus Accelerated 2nd Degree BSN program. This learning option offers small class sizes, faculty mentoring, and hands-on experiences in an environment dedicated to individualized learning.
Through our campus-based ABSN program, you’ll attend classes for your nursing theory courses and participate in nursing skills and simulation labs at our state-of-the-art Center for Caring with Technology, the centerpiece of a 36,500-square-foot building housing the School of Nursing that opened on our main campus in Baltimore in August 2013.
