UT Tyler Undergraduate Nursing
Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing
The Accelerated BSN Track in the college of Nursing at The University of Texas at Tyler is designed for students with a baccalaureate or higher degree in a non-nursing field who wish to pursue a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing (BSN).
This highly competitive 16-month fast-track is an intense program for motivated individuals who aspire to begin their professional nursing career as soon as possible. The program is a fast-paced curriculum that requires on-campus live interactive video (ITV) classes, and clinical experiences in a variety of settings.
UT Tyler students are exposed to a variety of structured and unstructured clinical experiences interacting with patient populations ranging in age from the newborn to the very aged.
