Accelerated Nursing Coursework
We all learn differently, which is why our Accelerated BSN courses are available online or on campus. Covering everything from basic nursing fundamentals, such as legal issues, ethics and nutrition, to business dimensions of health care, these courses make up the foundation of your accelerated nursing education.
Though we offer two paths for completing your accelerated nursing coursework, both will prepare you to put your new knowledge into practice in nursing skills and simulation labs, and clinical rotations.
ABSN Online Courses
As part of our online-based Hybrid ABSN program, you’ll follow along with online coursework delivered through our Canvas learning management system (LMS). This digital platform allows you to “attend class” on your schedule — as long as you turn in your assignments on time, it doesn’t matter what time of day you finish your coursework.
One great benefit of online coursework is that you have the option to not only choose when you access courses, but also to access the content as often as you need. This means you can go back through an interactive exercise as part of test review or stop and rewind a video to re-listen to a challenging concept.
However, don’t think you won’t have a personal connection with your instructors. As with our Ground ABSN program, our faculty genuinely want to see you do well in the program and are available to talk over concepts and answer any questions you have — whether through our LMS’ built-in chat function, by text, email or phone, or through in-person, one-on-one meetings. You’ll also have 24-hour access to technical support in the unlikely event you experience an issue with the LMS.
Of course, you can’t become a nurse without practice. While you will complete your coursework online, you’ll spend several days each week attending skills and simulation labs, exams, and review sessions at our ABSN learning site in Parsippany. Additionally, you’ll gain real-world experience in a variety of clinical settings at Atlantic Health System and other leading health care providers in New Jersey.
ABSN Onsite Courses
Some students have reservations about online learning. Others just prefer the structure that comes with attending lectures on a set schedule. If you see yourself as more of a traditional classroom learner, our Ground ABSN program is for you. With classes held at our Rutherford, New Jersey, campus, you’ll get face-to-face instruction from experienced nursing professionals in an intimate environment where you can feel comfortable asking questions.
There, at the Barbara J. Toscano Nursing Resource and Simulation Center, you’ll also gain valuable hands-on practice in state-of-the-art skills and simulation labs. Designed to give you the confidence and skills necessary to show up to your clinicals confident, these labs cover a wide range of scenarios — from wound care to responding to rapidly changing health conditions. And like our online-based program, you’ll also experience what it’s like to work in the fast-paced world of health care through clinical rotations with leading care providers.
