    I am sorry to bother you again, but now that you were accepted, could you please tell me a little bit more about how hard the program is ? how many hours do you study? etc?
    Thank you so much for sharing with us this information!!

    I graduated from FAU's accelerated program in May of this year. It definitely isn't easy... but it's not impossible, I graduated with very good grades. It's very time consuming, don't expect to have much time to do anything else besides classes/clinicals/studying. However, I didn't think the 1st semester was too difficult (others did, but I guess I was expecting worse than it was), so it's a good transition... 2nd and 3rd semester were extremely busy though. Also, I found it comforting to know that you still get all the normal school breaks, so after summer you get a break, winter break/spring break/etc.

    Let me know if you have any more questions. Good luck!

    Thank you so much for taking the time to reply!! I have learned a lot already with your experience! would you please share your gpa before you entered the program?I did not score too high in the HESI (83 average) but I have a good gpa (3.84). Do you think I have a chance?
    Thank you again!!

    Hey Brina, I just got into the accelerated bsn program for this may, and I am wondering if you could answer a couple questions for me...

    Are the classes in the program with all of the other undergrads and/or nursing students, or are they classes exclusively designed for the accelerated BSN class of that year?

    Does it feel like a "personal atmosphere" despite the fact that it's at a somewhat huge school??

    Please let me know what you think if you have the time! It would help so much
