Curriculum Overview

Roseman University’s Accelerated BSN curriculum is designed to reflect the relationship among the concepts of nursing, health, person, and environment. The block format of the ABSN program, derived from the Philosophy of the College of Nursing, allows students to successfully meet the objectives of the curriculum and ABSN program.

The ABSN curriculum is designed to facilitate students’ professional progression from basic knowledge and skills to advanced critical thinking/clinical reasoning, problem solving, and independent judgment, allowing every Roseman nursing student to go on toward successful nursing careers.


Each nursing block produces outcome-focused competencies related to block and overall program objectives. Where appropriate, threads in each clinical block consist of pathophysiology, nutrition, pharmacology, legal-ethical, developmental stages, and culture.

The block curriculum allows for total focus on one subject at a time, ensuring complete mastery.


A critical component of the Mastery Learning Model, remediation sessions allow students who have not mastered course material to relearn and demonstrate competence again. In these regularly-occurring sessions, students will receive additional feedback and work to improve understanding.

Remediation sessions typically occur after every didactic course.
