Accelerated BSN Course List & Schedule


These courses must be completed before beginning the 15-month Accelerated BSN (A-BSN) clinical component. They may be taken at other regionally accredited schools and transferred to UIndy. If you choose this route, please verify with the UIndy School of Nursing that the credits will transfer before enrolling in classes.

Based on transcript evaluation and sequencing, some students may not need to take all of the prerequisites. Required science and math courses must have been taken during the previous five years to fulfill the A-BSN requirements. Because A-BSN students will receive a bachelor's degree in order to sit for the NCLEX, students must fulfill the general education core of the University. Because you already have a bachelor's degree, it is hoped that your previous coursework will fulfill the bulk of or all of the UIndy general education requirements. See the A-BSN pattern sheet below for more information.
