About the Program
The accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) program at our Sioux Falls site, which we also offer at our Aberdeen site and our Rapid City site, is designed for students who have completed a bachelor's degree in any field and wish to obtain a B.S.N. The program takes 12 months to complete and starts once a year. In Sioux Falls, the program starts in August. Students take coursework and participate in lecture, on-campus labs and clinical rotations in Sioux Falls and surrounding communities. Classes meet on the campus of Southeast Technical Institute in the Terrance Sullivan Health Science Center.
Before applying to the accelerated B.S.N. program, students must:
- Apply to SDSU for general admission to the university.
