Course Delivery Options

When it comes to the fundamentals of nursing, we give you the option to complete your ABSN courses online or on campus. While there are distinct differences between these course delivery options, they feature the same rigorous nursing curriculum over the span of four, full-time semesters. 

To complete the ABSN courses online, through our e-Learning platform, you must: 

  • Enroll in our Downers Grove accelerated nursing program.

To complete the ABSN courses on campus, in a traditional classroom setting, you must: 

  • Enroll in our Maywood accelerated nursing program.

Whether you complete your ABSN courses online or on campus, you’ll put this fundamental knowledge into practice during your in-person nursing labs and clinical rotations.
