Hello everyone, I was just wondering if anyone is currently enrolled in the Banner Bilingual nurse fellows program. I've been to the SMCC website and Banner's as well
but I'm still trying to figure out why the bilingual program is a whole year longer than the regular BNF.
Another thing I noticed is they don't require you to take the NET.
Does it mean it's less intense? Less hours a day?
Is it very competitive? How hard is it to get in?
What is your weekly schedule like? In the SMCC website it says to be prepared to be in class from 8 to 5 but, when I looked it up, the actual courses almost all seemed to be at night.
I'm a full time mother of 2 and I'm trying to plan how to do it but if it requires me to be there all day it would be imposible.
In the course outline I did not see any indication of separate classes in spanish.
Are there any classes in spanish?
Anything you can through my way about the program is highly appreciated.

from my understanding the cohorts are grouped by the prereq's theyve finished, so if student a, b, and c all apply at the same time, but only student c has all the prep work done, he starts the nursing program; meanwhile students a & b go to the same prereq classes with others in who've been selected, a&b don't necessarily end up in the nursing program if they fail their prereq's and their cohort will be added to by those who submit their application at their level......this was how it was explained to me by cohort members, it seemed a convoluted way of approaching the program, but they seem to get alot of support if they aren't doing so well and there is a great deal of recruitment for bilingual nurses
