Just wanted to get the word out there that Sacramento State and CSU Stanislaus are launching an accelerated second bachelor's program for nursing. The first class is supposed to start August 2011 and the program is 15 months long. Classes are supposed to be held in Stockton. The downside is that the cost is $35K. You can register your interest on the CSU Stanislaus extended learning website.
I have been in contact with CSU Stan and was considering this option, but considering all of the RNs in the area who are having trouble finding jobs, I cant stomach the idea of having so much debt and not being able to find a job. I have decided to go the community college route to save money, then complete my MSN online, since I already have a BS degree in a non nursing field.
They also told me that you are not allowed to work while in the program, which seals the deal for me, because I cannot afford to NOT work. I am interested in finding out, how many students are considering the program though. The price is in line with other ABSN programs, so its good that we will have this option in the area.
