Second Degree Nursing

Seton Hall University offers an Accelerated Second Degree B.S.N. Program designed for aspiring nurses who already hold a baccalaureate degree in a non-nursing major. We offer this program at two locations. The program at our Georgian Court campus in Lakewood, N.J. begins in the fall semester and ends in late October the following year. Beginning in January 2021, we will also offer this program at our Interprofessional Health Sciences main campus in Nutley, N.J. This program will begin in the spring semester and ends in late March the following year.
