The application deadline for Samford University’s new accelerated second degree Bachelor of Science in Nursing program is March 1.  The program offered by Samford’s Ida V. Moffett School of Nursing enables those who already hold a bachelor’s degree in a field other than nursing to earn a nursing degree in 15 months.

            Students complete the nursing degree in four semesters including a full summer term, going into nursing clinical courses the first semester.  Students applying now would begin classes in the fall.

            Applicants must hold a baccalaureate degree in another field with a minimum grade point average of 2.8 on a 4.0 scale, and meet certain requirements in several science courses.

            Applications are available online or by contacting Jan Paine at 205 726-2746.  For information, go to the nursing school website at
