Accelerated Career Entry to Nursing Program
The Pathway to Health Professions and the Accelerated Career Entry (ACE) to Nursing Program have created a new undergraduate program, "Health Sciences—ACE 3+1 BSN Program" for the College of Nursing and Health Professions of Drexel University. The new program is based on the four-year, one co-op curricular model. The new program combines the first three years of the Pathway to Health Professions Program (health sciences major) with the one-year ACE to Nursing Program.
The new program creates another avenue for high school graduates to earn a B.S.N. degree and pursue a career in nursing. Students can enter this new program either as freshmen or as transfer students. The new program is very timely in that it addresses the strong demand among applicants for undergraduate programs leading to the B.S.N. degree. The current demand for nursing degrees indicateds the excellent job market that exists for nurses.
A key part of the program is Drexel's prestigious co-operative education program, in which students alternate periods of classroom study with periods of professional work experience. Please note: Students transferring more than 60 quarter (40 semester) credits may not qualify for the co-op option.
