Roseman University of Health Sciences offers an 18-month Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (ABSN) with two different learning modalities, hybrid-online or on-campus. The ABSN program prepares the candidates for entry into practice as a nurse generalist. At the completion of the program, the graduate is prepared to practice the profession of nursing assuming legal, ethical, and professional responsibility as identified in the Nurse Practice Act. The graduate must apply for, take, and pass the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN) required for all registered nurse candidates.

Course Block Curriculum System
The University uses the “Block System” of curricular design, which provides students with the opportunity to study one content area intensely and master it without distractions from other subjects. Therefore, the student’s progression within the nursing program is dependent on the mastery of the subject matter necessary for application in the subsequent Block.
Level of Achievement
The University has set the standard of achievement for each Block at 90%. That means that in order to receive a “pass”, or “P”, a student must achieve a score of 90% or higher on each assessment.
The College of Nursing is committed to creating an environment whereby students are provided additional learning opportunities to achieve the standard of 90% on all block requirements. Thus, students are provided the opportunity to remediate Assessments, skills, and other educational assignments to achieve the 90% passing grade. Remediation provides students the opportunity to work with the faculty to identify areas that require additional focus and mastery, develop learning strategies, and re-test or rewrite the educational assignment.
Students are given additional opportunities through remediation to achieve a standard of 90% in order to accommodate different styles and rates of learning.
Classroom/ Lab Hours
The Accelerated BSN on-campus learning modality option is a full-time program. Classes are held Monday-Friday from 8:00 am – 3:00 pm for all didactic components in each block. Skills lab assignments may require participation after normal class hours. Blocks vary in length depending on the number of credits and whether or not a clinical component is required.
The Accelerated BSN hybrid-online learning modality option’s didactic components of a block are taken online. Assessments, group assignments, skills lab assignments, and clinical rotations are done in person. Blocks vary in length depending on the number of credits and whether or not a clinical component is required.
Clinical rotations are held at various hospitals and healthcare facilities throughout Southern Nevada as well as the Salt Lake Valley and surrounding areas. Clinical rotation hours vary in length and hours depending on the block, facility, and scheduling. Students are assigned the hours and location of a clinical rotation.

A significant benefit of accelerated nursing programs is right there in the name: the accelerated timeline. If you’re able to commit to this program from day one as though it was a full-time job, you could receive your nursing degree in as little as 18 months. You may find that while others are still hunting for the right nursing program, you could already be out in the workforce, demonstrating your full nursing potential.
Increased Earning Potential
This accelerated timeline helps reduce the length of time you’re enrolled in school while moving up your timeline for increased earning power. Over the length of your nursing career, you’ll find the extra time spent working can give you a leg up over your peers, garnering your experience and knowledge, while still having an excellent educational foundation on which to achieve your professional goals.
When it comes to the benefits of the Accelerated BSN hybrid-online learning modality option, one of the most significant is the flexibility of our online courses. Through our online learning platform, you’ll have the ability to learn in the environment, and at a time that works best for you and your schedule. You’ll be able to work at your own pace, within the structures of the program, while having a clear understanding of how much time is needed to complete each lesson.
