Accelerated BSN 

Life moves fast, and Allen College understands. That's why we offer an accelerated path. The rigorous coursework and clinical opportunities prepare our students for licensure and rewarding careers. 

Students build strong relationships with our experienced faculty in small classes, and that personal attention leads to success. Our NCLEX pass rate is consistently higher than Iowa and national averages, with the vast majority of students passing on the first attempt. 

Plan your path to a rewarding career. Start with Allen College.

Exciting Changes are Coming

Beginning in summer 2023, Allen College will offer a revised accelerated BSN program. Meeting the needs of the community and today’s college students is at the forefront of the change. The accelerated BSN degree will be earned in one year, after completing the prescribed general education courses at another regionally accredited institution. The new requirements and curriculum are accessible above.

Our structured partnerships with UNI, Wartburg, Central, Simpson, Loras, Drake, and Upper Iowa allow students to earn two baccalaureate degrees. One from the initial institution and  a BSN from Allen College.
