The accelerated career entry (ACE) program is a baccalaureate program for individuals already holding a BS/BA from an accredited college or university who wish to change careers and enter the nursing profession. The intensive program allows qualified individuals to complete the nursing coursework in 12 consecutive months (excluding prerequisite courses). The ACE program is based on the same curriculum as SCSU's highly successful and nationally accredited traditional nursing program. There are opportunities to learn with other highly motivated, adult learners with rich life and work experiences. Nursing faculty are dedicated to working with this unique population.
