Accelerated Nursing Program new at Cecil College

NORTH EAST, Md. – Cecil College has launched a 12-month Accelerated Nursing Program designed to fast track individuals interested in becoming a Registered Nurse. This program is for individuals who have already earned a bachelor’s degree in another academic field or have acquired a significant number of credits and are looking to transition into a career in nursing.

Enrolled students will take hybrid courses in fast-paced 12-week semesters that will include online theory curriculum, and in-person labs and clinicals. Online courses are both synchronous and asynchronous.

Upon completion of the Accelerated Nursing Program, graduates will have earned an Associate of Science in Nursing (RN) which prepares them to take the National Council Licensure Examination-RN exam and meets Maryland, Delaware, and Pennsylvania requirements.

This new program will begin in September 2023, and students can hold a bachelor’s degree in many academic fields to potentially qualify for this program. A completed bachelor’s degree fulfills most prerequisites of the 34 credits required to be admitted to the nursing program.

The Cecil College nursing program is certified by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) and approved by the Maryland Board of Nursing (MBON), the National County for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA), and the Maryland Higher Education Commission.
