The Bachelor of Science in Nursing Accelerated Track is designed for students with a non-nursing Bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited college or university. This program begins every May and is 15 months long; courses are taken at a faster pace than in the BSN Traditional Track.
Minimum GPAs & Test Scores
Cumulative GPA: 2.5
Prerequisite GPA: 3.0
TEAS Score: 65
In addition to meeting our GPA and TEAS score requirements, applicants must complete all math and science prerequisites before submitting an application. Applicants may be missing up to 9 hours of non-math and science classes when submitting an application, but must finish those remaining hours prior to starting classes at UT Health San Antonio.
Courses taken pass/fail:
Prerequisite courses taken as “pass/fail” or “credit/no credit” during the Spring 2020, Summer 2020, or Fall 2020 terms can be accepted as long as the course is passed and credit is earned. Classes taken this way will not be included in the cumulative or prerequisite GPA. Failed courses will not be accepted, but will be included in the GPA calculation.
The TEAS exam is being waived for all applicants to the Spring 2021 and Fall 2021 Traditional BSN programs, as well as the May 2021 Accelerated BSN program. For applicants who have already taken the TEAS exam and have sent scores to UT Health San Antonio, those scores will not be considered in the admission review process.
In addition to completing our prerequisite coursework, ABSN applicants must receive a completed Bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited college before classes begin in May.
Applicants must follow our Application Instructions and follow NursingCAS procedures. All materials must be received by the application deadline. Students with foreign college credit must also follow our Foreign Coursework Instructions.
Application and fee
A completed NursingCAS application must be submitted before the application deadline. All fees are accessed through the NursingCAS application. The Office of Admissions fee is $45 and is non-refundable. The NursingCAS fee is separate and is set by NursingCAS.
