    I'm currently in the program right now. Here's some info from the inside which may be helpful to you. First of all, the program is moving to the Baldwin County campus for all accelerated students starting in the summer. This is a HUGE positive thing because Fairhope is a beautiful place to be. The program is manageable. Grant it, I'm only averaging about 4 hrs of sleep each night because of the work, but at the end of each rotation, you'll get a significant amount of time off to recupe. The program is very writing intensive, mainly because you'll be in 5 master's level classes. So, I hope you like to write. But above all, the program is excellent and the professors are far better than anything I've ever experienced. I'm thoroughly enjoying this program you'll be surprised how much you learn in such short periods of time. Good luck, and let me know if you have any more questions or concerns.

    I graduated from USA 5 years ago this month and am planning to go into the Master's program this spring. I loved the program...very challenging and rewarding, and the teachers are superb! I feel like I got a great education! Best of luck!

    hi! I just applied to the program to enroll in Spring 2011. Did you have to wait long to hear back about acceptance? Was it in paper or email form? Also, did you submit a resume with your application? I asked admissions and they said it was necessary yet I noticed that it was listed as a requirement on the website after I submitted the application.

    Let me move this to the general student nursing forum.

    Where have you heard USA had one of the best programs in the nation?

    I have heard a lot of negative comments about USA's program. I was accepted somewhere else but it is more expensive. How much is USA's accelerated program for out of state students. Any feedback on the program is helpful. I saw where it was ranked 193 for its nursing program. That's not too promising.

    For all those of you who have been accepted to the BSN/MSN program, how long did it take to hear something from the application deadline. The deadline for me was Sept.1 When do I hear about interviews/acceptance?

    hey, my name is geralyn and i got accepted into the bsn/msn program at south alabama on october 18th, 2011. i had the phone interview and the same day they called me back and put me in the program.
    the staff told me later that they finished accepting students in both bsn/msn and traditional programs by november 10th. so, if you don't receive a phone call or letter in the mail by november 15th, then most likely you did not get chosen. there is a slim possibility that you might get chosen at the end of november if someone decides not to do the program.

    i heard good things about the program and they have a 97-99% nclex pass rate. the bad thing is you will not have a life outside of school, since you will be in class all day, clinicals and studying.

    i hope i helped!
    good luck, lord knows i need it. lol.
