The Achieving the Curriculum Expeditiously (ACE) program is for students who have already completed all undergraduate core course work, who want a fast-paced, rigorous course of study. This is a four consecutive semester program.

The ACE option requires a commitment of time totaling approximately 81 hours per week. These hours include classroom, clinical and laboratory time as well as study time.

It is strongly recommended by the School of Nursing that students enrolled in this program NOT maintain a full or part time job until after the completion of the program.
