If you already hold a bachelor’s degree in a different field, obtaining a Bachelor of Science – Nursing at William Jewell College can be done in a fraction of the time and cost of a four-year degree.

Students already holding a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited institution who enter the Accelerated Track program in nursing are exempt from all Core Curriculum requirements at the College if at least 90 semester hours of their previous undergraduate work is applicable toward a bachelor’s degree at William Jewell.  (For an explanation of what transfer work can count toward a degree at Jewell, refer to the Course Catalog section on “Requirements for Transfer Admission”. Note that credit transferred from a community college can be included only in the first 64 hours of the 90 hours needed for a student to be exempted from Jewell’s Core Curriculum.)
