I recently applied to an Accelerated Option Nursing program which is a year long,, and I also applied to a Generic, Full-Time program which is a semester longer. Hopefully, i get accepted into both tracks and have the luxury of choosing which one i want to get into. I'm just having a hard time deciding which one will be a better choice as Tara's being prepared for the field.
I wanted to see if anybody who is currently in an Accelerated option program can give me some advice as to whether its worth getting into. What are the deadlines like? The workload? Are you finding that you are overwhelmed? Is it not as bad as you thought it would be?
Any suggestions or feedback will be appreciated!

I'm in a 2yr accelerated program. It's very demanding. Between school and my family I don't have time to work. There are a few in my class that do work, and they have said they wish they didn't have to. My husband, 5yr old son, and myself moved in with my in-laws while I complete the program. I only have 1 semester left. It really depends on how stressed you want to be. Good luck!
