In an order to help address the nursing shortage, Allegany College of Maryland has developed a Fast Track Option available to the college student who has completed all of his general education requirements and wishes to complete the program in sixteen months.

A student enrolled in this option will attend nursing clinical classes beginning in the Fall semester and continue year round to the following December when graduation will occur.  Due to the rigors of this program, a student must have all science requirements for the program complete before enrolling in the clinical sequence.  It is highly recommended that all general education courses required in the curriculum be completed.

The application process and the admission criteria for this program is the same as for the college student – regular option.  Please refer to pages 7 - 9 of the Information Book for the guidelines to follow.
