1. When do classes start for the ABSN program?
2. What qualifications do I need to apply to the ABSN program?
To start, you need at least 54 credits of undergraduate coursework and a minimum cumulative 2.75 GPA for the last 54 credits you completed. You then need to successfully complete the Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS), a series of ABSN prerequisite courses, and a few other requirements.
3. What is the minimum TEAS score accepted?
Because the minimum passing scores we accept may vary from year to year, you should speak with an admissions advisor to ensure you have the most current requirement. Generally speaking, minimum TEAS scores must exceed the national program mean scores and the adjusted individual score, as determined by ATI.
4. Can I apply to the ABSN program while completing the prerequisites?
5. Does Roseman accept credit transfers?
While students commonly transfer credits from other undergraduate programs, our College of Nursing examines the transfer of coursework credit on a case-by-case basis. An admissions advisor can help you determine if your transfer credits come from an applicable post-secondary institution.
6. Can I work while in the Accelerated BSN program?
7. How long will it take me to graduate from the ABSN program?
The ABSN program itself can be completed in less than 18 months. However, program length may vary per cohort because of holidays or other breaks. ABSN prerequisite courses are not factored into the accelerated timeframe. The time it will take you to complete the prerequisites is highly dependent on your academic history.
8. How much does the ABSN program cost?
Not including program fees and health insurance, the ABSN program costs $55,350.
For more information about financial aid opportunities or the process of applying for financial aid, refer to the University Financial Aid website.
9. Are scholarships available?
10. Is the ABSN program at Roseman University accredited?
Our ABSN programs near Las Vegas and Salt Lake City are both accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). The ABSN program in Henderson, Nevada, meets the approval of the Nevada State Board of Registered Nursing, while the ABSN program in South Jordan, Utah, meets the approval of the Utah State Board of Nursing.
11. Why isn’t the ABSN program listed on the Nevada Board of Nursing website?
The Nevada Board of Nursing approves our ABSN program, only they list it as a BSN program. The reason why they list the program without the “A” is because graduating students are awarded a BSN degree. The “A” is merely a naming convention that identifies the program as being accelerated in nature.
12. How do I apply for the ABSN program?
The first step is to verify your eligibility with an admissions advisor. If you meet the admissions requirements, you can apply through NursingCAS. However, because there are a lot of steps and documentation involved in the application process, you should work closely with your admissions advisor to ensure you supply a complete application by the specified deadline.
13. Given our unique mastery learning model, what should I do if I want to apply to graduate programs after earning my BSN from Roseman University?
Roseman University is not at liberty to counsel to the admission standards of other institutions. Students who wish to pursue graduate education should contact the institutions of their choice directly to inquire about their specific admission requirements.
