Villanova University Nursing Partnership

Saint Joseph’s University has signed an articulation agreement with the Villanova University M. Louise Fitzpatrick College of Nursing that provides priority admissions consideration for Saint Joseph’s students in Villanova’s BSN Express Program. This 14-month second degree program incorporates all of the standard components of Villanova’s nursing program in a concentrated timeframe. 

A minimum of 5 qualified SJU students annually will be offered admission to this second degree option. To qualify for admission consideration, students must earn a minimum overall GPA of 3.0, complete all stated nursing pre-requisite courses with a grade of B or higher, and apply to Villanova by October 15 of their senior year at SJU. Students may identify their interest in this option as early as their sophomore year at SJU so that they can begin working with the Villanova nursing representatives early in the process.
