For those who already have a college degree or a significant amount of college credit, Galen offers a flexible pathway to help you enter the nursing profession sooner. Based on the previous degree held or amount of transfer credit, you could shorten your BSN to as few as two years.

If you chose a different path when you started college, but think nursing could be a good fit for your future, Galen could help you reach your goal.

  • BSN-prepared nurses are in high demand with a lot of exciting career opportunity
  • For those who already have a college degree or a significant amount of college credit
  • Previously earned Arts and Science and Elective course credits could be accepted for transfer so that students will have only Nursing Courses to complete which can be done in 8 quarters (two years)
  • Speak to an Admissions Representative directly to see what your individualized path could look like based on your past higher education experience.

The curriculum here outlines all courses in our 3-year BSN program. Highlighted are the required nursing courses that can be completed in 2 years.
