About the Program
The accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) program at our Aberdeen site, which we also offer in Rapid City and Sioux Falls, is designed for students who wish to obtain a B.S.N. in as little as 12 months. In Aberdeen, the program starts each January. Students take coursework and participate in lecture, on-campus labs and clinical rotations in Aberdeen and surrounding communities. Classes meet on the campus of Northern State University.
Before applying to the accelerated B.S.N. program, you must:
- Apply to SDSU for general admission to the university
- Complete the prerequisite courses listed on the curriculum plan (you can verify course equivalences on the transfer equivalency site)
- Meet the technical standards and eligibility requirements.
The application to the accelerated B.S.N. program in Aberdeen is available on NursingCAS around February 1 each year. The deadline is June 1. Any changes or updates to this deadline can be found on the application page.
