What is blended learning?

Blended learning combines online and on-site instruction. Our ABSN program blends online accelerated nursing coursework with hands-on nursing labs and in-person clinical rotations.

What ABSN prerequisites do I need?

Our ABSN program has nine prerequisite course requirements, which include microbiology, anatomy and physiology, chemistry, psychology, statistics, theology and diversity. You must show the successful completion of these courses before you can begin nursing school.

How much does the accelerated nursing program cost?

We base the cost of our accelerated nursing program on the number of credits required to graduate. Our ABSN program comprises 64 credit hours, with each credit costing $995. This puts ABSN tuition at $63,680. There are also program-related fees to consider, e.g., books, lab supplies and school uniforms.

If the coursework is online, can I complete the program from anywhere?

No, you cannot complete the program from anywhere. You must live within driving distance of the Seattle metro area to be in-person at our ABSN program site to attend regularly scheduled labs and exams. You also need to complete your clinicals at health care facilities in the Seattle area.

Why are NCLEX pass rates important?

For the past several years, our BSN graduates have achieved first-time NCLEX pass rates above 90%.
