Accelerated Second Degree Nursing
The Accelerated Second Degree in Nursing (ASDNU) program is for individuals who hold a bachelor’s degree in a field other than nursing, are seeking to become a nurse, and need to continue their studies to earn a second bachelor’s of science in nursing. The ASDNU program is full-time, 15-month program that begins each May and runs through August of the following year. With a nursing degree from Fairfield University’s Egan School of Nursing and Health Studies, students will be empowered to become leaders in their field.
For more information, contact Carole Pomarico, adult program director, at email@example.com or set up an informational appointment by calling 203-254-4000, ext. 4150.
The Egan School of Nursing and Health Studies hosts an information session for the 15-month Accelerated Second Degree program twice a year in April and September. It's a great way for prospective students to learn more about the program and to meet our nursing faculty. For details on our next upcoming ASDNU information session, click here.
Please note: This program is for students who currently hold a bachelor's degree in another field and wish to pursue a second degree in nursing (BSN).
