The University of Providence is pleased to announce the addition of a clinical site for the Accelerated Nursing (BSN) program at Providence Medford Medical Center in Medford, Oregon. The first class of students will begin in January 2021. The Medford site will be the third location for the University of Providence Accelerated BSN program, in addition to Anchorage, Alaska and Lewistown, Montana.                       

The program is designed for the student with a bachelor’s degree in another field who wants to become a Registered Nurse. Students can complete the 54 ​semester credit program in 12 months, attending three successive semesters. The program includes innovative online instruction; all testing is completed online, and clinicals are done in-person at the clinical site. ​This program requires a full-time commitment to complete the requirements in this accelerated track, and requires successful completion of four prerequisites prior to acceptance in the program.

Applications will be open from April 1 to May 15, with a decision by July 1. Eight students will be accepted into the first cohort in Medford, with priority given to Providence St. Joseph Health caregivers and their family members. Special consideration will also be made for Rogue Valley area residents.

The BSN is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) and approved by the Montana Board of Nursing. For more information, visit https://www.uprovidence.edu/explore-programs/providence-bsn-tracks/ or contact nursing@uprovidence.edu (406)791-5226
