On 21 August 2018, Madonna added the new ABSN programme to address the growing nursing shortage by providing quality nursing education to more students in a short amount of time.
The ABSN programme allows qualified students to transfer their college credit or non-nursing degrees to earn an ABSN in 16 months through a combination of online coursework and onsite lab experience at Madonna's new 13,834-square-foot learning centre located at 25925 Telegraph Road in Southfield.
The ABSN is designed to make business information more accessible to the First Nation and Metis business community and to help Aboriginal entrepreneurs find the information they need to help set up or grow a business.
"We are pleased that ABSN will continue to provide information and services to Aboriginal entrepreneurs in Saskatchewan," said Bill Hogan, manager of Visions North Community Futures.
The ABSN is part of The Business Link, an online service providing business information and advice to Alberta's small business community.
The ABSN site provides information on a number of business topics, from business planning and start up to product development, to running an E-business.
All ABSN students enrolled in the mental health nursing course were invited to participate in the study.
All students in the ABSN program held previously earned degrees.

However, little research has been conducted comparing students/graduates from ABSN
programs to those from traditional BSN programs, and there is no consensus among studies on the differences in outcomes.
Rafferty and Lindell (2011) wanted to determine whether nurse managers had different perceptions of the clinical skills between traditional and ABSN
Only five studies were found where simulation was examined with ABSN
