To respond to nursing shortages at the local and national levels, Curry College designed the Accelerated Nursing Program (ACCEL) to provide a route for students who want to make a career change into nursing by earning a second bachelor's degree. ACCEL is designed for qualified and highly motivated students who have already earned a bachelor's degree in another field.

The accelerated and intensive structure of the program means that you can obtain a BS in Nursing in sixteen months. The program uses a cohort model, and students are accepted into a specific cohort that begins each January in Milton and each Fall in Plymouth. Each cohort is limited to 30 students thus affording students the opportunity to know their professors and fellow students well.
With a BS degree from Curry College you will have significant employment flexibility. Curry provides first rate clinical experiences in a wide range of hospitals and health care agencies. At the completion of the Nursing Program at Curry you will take the NCLEX-RN and be eligible to practice in all health care settings - acute care, ambulatory care, community health, and mental health.
