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 Freehold, N.J., location begins in the fall semester and ends in late October the following year. We also offer this program at our Interprofessional Health Sciences main campus in Nutley, N.J., which begins in the spring semester and ends in late March the following year.
