Accelerated BSN Online or Onsite Courses
Covering the fundamentals of nursing, such as ethics, nutrition, and community health, these courses set the foundation for your accelerated online or onsite nursing education. The curriculum is the same for both delivery methods, with the same courses taking the same amount of time to complete. Your knowledge of nursing theory and core nursing skills is then put into practice during your nursing skills labs, nursing simulations, and clinical rotations.
ABSN Online Courses
Delivered through an intuitive digital learning platform, many of our Accelerated BSN online courses are video-based, allowing students to rewind, restart, or fast-forward.
To complete your ABSN courses online, you must enroll in the ABSN program track at our Downers Grove Site. You’ll regularly attend the site to complete hands-on nursing skills labs and nursing simulations. Clinical rotations take place at a variety of Chicagoland health-care facilities.
Online Learning Support
Whether they’re teaching our curriculum online or face-to-face, our faculty are highly accessible and passionate about what they do — they want nothing more than to see nursing students succeed. You also have access to an online learning specialist who can assist you with technical matters involving the learning management system.
Both learning formats are also taught continuously, meaning you will complete our nursing curriculum simultaneously with the classmates in your cohort. We encourage fellow cohort members to study and collaborate together, and foster communication among every student.
ABSN Onsite Courses
If you prefer a learning experience where faculty teaches all of the curriculum face-to-face and in real time, you must enroll in our ABSN program track at our Maywood Health Sciences Campus, which is home to Loyola’s Stritch School of Medicine and Marcella Niehoff School of Nursing. You’ll attend class and participate in nursing skills labs and nursing simulations at the campus. Clinical rotations will occur at Chicagoland area health-care facilities.
A Leading University and Campus

The campus also hosts several research institutes and centers, including the Cardinal Bernadin Cancer Center, that focus on various areas of health care, including burn and shock trauma, cardiovascular disease, neuroscience, infectious disease, immunology, and oncology.
