Accelerated nursing programs are available to people who already hold a bachelor's degree in an unrelated field and wish to enter the nursing profession. Also known as direct entry programs, entrants to these "second degree" nursing candidates have become more numerous in recent years as have the educational programs to meet their needs. For those seeking a bachelor's degree in nursing prior to sitting for the RN exam an accelerated program usually takes twelve to eighteen months.
