FREEPORT, ILLINOIS — FHN is partnering with University of Wisconsin – Oshkosh to offer its Accelerated Online Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program to area Illinois residents. This innovative option allows individuals who have already completed a bachelor’s degree in another field and have met rigorous admission criteria to earn a BSN in 12 months.
Theory courses are offered online while clinical rotations are completed at FHN, mentored one-on-one by nurse preceptors and secured by clinical coordinators.
Courses in the accelerated program are completed at a rate of one credit hour per week with few days off throughout the year. The program’s National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) first-attempt pass rates consistently exceed the national average, and graduates of the program are well-prepared to assume the role of a professional nurse.
