Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing Track
Our COVID-19 plan for Fall 2020 students is available on mercer.edu.
To thoroughly prepare you for your new career, our ABSN track consists of both online coursework and hands-on experience. This means you’ll graduate with the technical and theoretical knowledge required of licensed nurses, as well as the skills and confidence necessary to practice safely. Mercer nursing students will experience a rich learning environment steeped in the values of excellence, Christian caring, compassion, civility, integrity, collaboration, and social responsibility.
No one said earning a nursing degree is easy, but with our supportive faculty, you’ll never be alone on your nursing journey. Whether you have questions about an assignment or need help understanding concepts, our dedicated instructors go out of their way to make themselves available for you — through online question-and-answer sessions, in-person meetings, phone calls, emails, and even texts.
