Fast tracking in the RN program

  1. Hi Everyone:
    At my college they are considering taking 30 students and fast tracking them through a 6 semester program (3yrs) by having them complete the program in 5 semesters. (using addtional summer courses). I would like to hear from anyone who has done this and how they liked it.

    Thanx

    I'm in my first year of a two year RN program (NYS) and it is a BEAR! It is the hardest thing I've ever done in my life. I've got a supportive mate, a intelligent 9 year old child (going on 21), supportive instructors, an a short commute.
    Think long and hard about the quailty of life issue/trade offs you will have to make.
    I suggest that you talk to others who've been through the same/simlar program and who you think are LIKE YOU,(family, circumstances, personality, etc.) before you decide.
