There’s a shorter path to a BSN
Earn your ADN and BSN in as little as three years through our Concurrent Enrollment Program (CEP).
An Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) can only take you so far. But there’s good news. You can simultaneously work on your ADN and your Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN).
Here’s how: You’ll take ADN classes with one of our community college partners. During semester breaks, you’ll start your BSN at University of Phoenix.
Plus, you and your nursing classmates enroll as a group, known as a cohort, offering a built-in support system as you move through the program.
To earn a BSN, community college nursing students normally have to transfer to a four-year university, where credits are evaluated individually. With us, you’ll transfer 87 credits for earning your ADN.
In addition to your transferred credits, you’ll need just 33 credits to complete your BSN. That means you’ll pay only for the classes you need — not repeats or general courses. Plus, we’ve lowered tuition to $350 per credit for CEP students.
You’ll take BSN courses during your community college breaks. After you graduate, you can begin your nursing career while finishing your BSN degree just one 5-week course at a time.

Why a BSN is the right choice
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, those with a BSN generally have better job prospects than those without one.
In 2010, The Institute of Medicine issued a “Future of Nursing” report, which set a goal of increasing the percentage of nurses with a BSN from 50 percent in 2010 to 80 percent by 2020.
According to the American Nurses Credentialing Center, 100 percent of nurse leaders in Magnet systems must have a bachelor’s degree.
