Getting Ready for Class

Course Registration

The Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree program is a full-time, on-campus program. The college's Office of Student Services will register you for your fall courses based upon the Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing program plan of study.

Please carefully review your plan of study. Make sure to double check your schedule each semester throughout the program to ensure that you are taking the correct classes. Please contact the Undergraduate Program Coordinator if you determine that there is a problem with your course schedule.

Please review the College of Nursing Academic Calendar for all program related dates. 

ABSN Course Schedule & Clinicals

The accelerated BSN degree program is a full-time program with classroom and clinical experiences each semester. It is essential that you have a flexible schedule in order to meet your learning needs. Each semester's schedule will be available on our website approximately two months before classes begin. Students should expect to have classes on Mondays and Tuesdays, and clinicals or labs on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. 

Approximately two weeks before the start of each semester clinical groups will be announced. Expect to receive an email from  the Clinical Education Manager about your clinical assignment.They will be your point of contact should you have any specific concerns about your assignment. If you have a question about a course, please contact the faculty assigned to the course. All faculty members can be found in the Faculty Directory

Textbooks

The College of Nursing Booklist will be posted approximately one month prior to the beginning of the semester. Typically, students order books through online publishers. Books also can be purchased through the MUSC Bookstore during New Student Orientation. When available, faculty try to make an effort to adopt E-Books to provide students with a broader range of resources and a lesser price. There will be adequate time to order required textbooks before the start of classes.
