About

The Nursing - Accelerated offered by the University of California, San Francisco  is a three-year accelerated program leading to a Master of Science degree in nursing for people without previous nursing preparation but who hold a bachelor's degree in another field.

Overview

Graduates of this Nursing - Accelerated program offered by the University of California, San Francisco are prepared as advanced practice nurses, which are registered nurses with graduate academic preparation and advanced clinical skills that qualify them as experts in a defined area of knowledge and practice. The advanced practice nurse's role incorporates the functions of clinician, educator, health policy expert, consultant and/or researcher.

Your pathway to a promising career in nursing starts here.

During the first year of the program, you will engage in concentrated study that culminates in licensure as an RN. Students are eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN) as approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing (BRN). In the remaining two years of the program, you will join our Master’s of Science program for graduate level nursing specialty training, choosing from a comprehensive selection of specialties and training at clinical sites in the greater San Francisco Bay Area. At the end of the three-year program, you will earn an RN license and an advanced master's degree in the specialty you choose.

You will need to decide which MS specialty area includes the advance practice role that is right for you, so that you can declare your specialty at the time of application. During screening, a large part of the evaluation will focus on your fit for the specialty and the specific advanced practice role associated with the specialty.
