Updated List of Accelerated Nursing Schools Added to Popular Website

Nursing remains one the few professions that doesn’t need to depend on the market or the economy for sustainability. In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that the employment of nurses will rise by 19 percent by the year 2022.

Accelerated nursing schools offer students the ability to get a nursing degree in a dramatically reduced time span. Through accelerated nursing programs, students that have already obtained a degree in another field can be ready to take a final nursing exam in as little as 12 months.

Now, with the new school year rapidly approaching, a popular nursing education website has updated its listings of accelerated nursing schools for the fall season.

“Accelerated nursing schools offer students the opportunity to get right into the field,” says spokeswoman Emily Warthen. “Only a select number of schools and universities offer these programs, and we help point students in the right direction.”

Many of the most prestigious learning institutions in the country offer accelerated nursing programs, including Arizona State, UCLA, Louisville, Vanderbilt and UPenn. Conversely, many lesser-known schools also can offer students a great nursing education, such as Adelphi, William Jewell, and Wayne State.

In addition to accelerated nursing school listings, Warthen says the site sheds light on the other various nursing programs that are available. The site also offers reviews and rankings of some of the top accelerated nursing schools in the United States.
