Accelerated BSN (ABSN) Program Tuition and Fees

If your calling is to become a nurse, you owe it to yourself to pursue this rewarding profession. The cost of going back to school for nursing, however, requires financial planning. As you run through the numbers, keep in mind that an ABSN degree could be a smart investment in your future.

By choosing Grand Canyon University (GCU) for your accelerated nursing education, you’ll connect with a highly supportive academic community that combines faith and reason with intellectual rigor to graduate competent, compassionate nurses who serve with a commitment to the greater good.
