Abstract

The accelerated online BSN program immerses students into the real world of nursing by presenting all theory courses online and almost all clinical experiences using a preceptor model. A rigorous "boot camp" jump starts the student's clinical learning experience and is followed by a variety of precepted experiences. The authors discuss the collaborative roles, distinctive program characteristics, and overwhelmingly positive outcomes. Graduates have high NCLEX scores and low attrition rate and acclimate easily into their nursing professional role.
