San Diego State University has eliminated a innovative nursing education program before it even started.

Sixty-seven students had enrolled in SDSU's "accelerated" nursing program, which offered a nursing degree in just twelve months of intensive study, as opposed to the traditional two-year program.

Students entering the program were required to have a bachelor's degree and have completed some basic course work.

An SDSU spokesperson said the program was canceled because it did not get all the necessary approvals by the state university system.

Students who were accepted to the accelerated program will get a refund of their $55 application fee, and will be offered a space in SDSU's traditional two-year nursing program.
