Roseman University of Health Sciences offers an Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (ABSN) program. The ABSN program is designed for students who have earned a Bachelor’s degree in another field of study.
The ABSN Program is a hybrid program that offers the didactic component online through faculty presentations. Clinical rotations, group assignments and laboratory assignments are held in-person at one of the Roseman campuses and/or health-care facilities throughout Southern Nevada.
The BSN program prepares the candidates for entry into practice as a nurse generalist. At the completion of the program, the graduate is prepared to practice the profession of nursing assuming legal, ethical and professional responsibility as identified in the Nurse Practice Act. The graduate must apply for, take and pass the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN) required for all registered nurse candidates.
The ABSN admits three times a year in July, October and February. Please contact an ABSN Advisor at 877-885-8399 for information regarding deadlines and application timelines.
The ABSN program is offered in Nevada at the Henderson, Nevada campus and the Hartwell Site (students generally commute from one campus to the other to complete assessments, assignments and skills lab).
COURSE BLOCK CURRICULUM SYSTEM
The University uses the “Block System” of curricular design, which provides students with the opportunity to study one content area intensely and master it without distractions from other subjects. Therefore, the student’s progression within the nursing program is dependent on the mastery of the subject matter necessary for application in the subsequent Block.
LEVEL OF ACHIEVEMENT
The University has set the standard of achievement for each Block at 90%. That means that in order to receive a “pass”, or “P”, a student must achieve a score of 90% or higher on each assessment.
The College of Nursing is committed to creating an environment whereby students are provided additional learning opportunities to achieve the standard of 90% on all block requirements. Thus, students are provided the opportunity to remediate Assessments, skills, and other educational assignments to achieve the 90% passing grade. Remediation provides students the opportunity to work with the faculty to identify areas that require additional focus and mastery, develop learning strategies, and re-test or rewrite the educational assignment.
Students are given additional opportunities through remediation to achieve the standard of 90% in order to accommodate different styles and rates of learning.
The BSN program is a hybrid program. Didactic components of a block are taken online. Assessments, group assignments, skills lab assignments and clinical rotations are done in person. Blocks vary in length depending on the number of credits and whether or not a clinical component is required.
Clinical rotations are held at various hospitals and health-care facilities throughout Southern Nevada. Clinical rotation hours vary in length and hours depending on the block, facility and scheduling. Students are assigned the hours and location of a clinical rotation.
