The Good

  • Accelerated Nursing Program
  • ABSN Clinical Immersion Experiences
  • Tuition Assistance for Active-Duty Military Students
  • Distance Learning and Online Programs

Accelerated Nursing Program

The Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program (ABSN) is for students who have completed an undergraduate degree and the required prerequisites. It is a full-time, campus-based program that lasts 16 months. Students will focus on health wellness and disease prevention. The university's Center for Nursing Discovery is the only accredited healthcare simulation education facility in North Carolina. 

ABSN Clinical Immersion Experiences

ABSN students will need to complete their clinical hours and Duke allows them to do that locally or globally. 

Choosing the local clinical placement has students work with culturally diverse populations in Durham County, North Carolina, including Latinos, refugees and immigrants, those living in poverty, homeless persons, and the elderly. Local clinical immersion groups will fulfill the students' hours on a weekly basis throughout the semester. 

Selecting to participate in the global clinical immersion experience will have students travel to one of Duke’s clinical sites for two weeks. Activities generally include community assessment, clinical observations, hands-on experiences in health care centers or polyclinics, home visits, environmental health visits, and health promotion. 

Tuition Assistance for Active-Duty Military Students

The Duke University School of Nursing supports active military students with their tuition expenses through a special scholarship program. Students enrolling in a graduate nursing program, as well as those who have been admitted to an MSN or DNP program, are eligible. Military students should note that the scholarship is on a first-come, first-serve, funds-available basis.

Distance Learning and Online Programs

The Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program offers students eight advanced practice registered nurse majors and three non-clinical majors. All of the following MSN majors are provided as a distance-based or online program. However, each major will have several on-campus activities that students will be required to attend. Students will participate in two-five day intensives with faculty and other experts to participate in face-to-face interactions, simulation, and hands-on activities.
