    I am in an accelerated associates program. It is pretty much the same sequence as the traditional program except some of our rotations are shorter and we don't get any breaks.
    6 weeks-Fundamentals I (LTC)
    6 weeks-Fundamentals II (Med-surg)
    7 weeks-Acute Care (Med-surg)
    6 weeks-Maternity
    7 weeks-Peds
    7 weeks-Mental Health & Leadership
    8 weeks-Advanced Chronic
    8 weeks-Advanced Acute

    This is my last week of peds and then only 3 more rotations to go!! Yay!

    We're on quarters, not semesters. It's a 7 qtr program.

    Freshmen:
    1st - 6 weeks of clinical at a LTC facility.
    2nd - med/surg and Pharm
    3rd - med/surg
    4th - OB

    Senior:
    - you are in a lottery and you choose which way you want to rotate through the last 3 quarters.

    The choices are Peds, Psych and Cardiac.

    Semester 2: 7 weeks in acute psych
    7 weeks in maternity
    14 weeks in adult health (basically med/surg 2)

    Semester 3 (summer): 8 weeks in adult/elder
    8 weeks in child/family

    Semester 4: 14 weeks in community
    14 weeks in leadership (capstone)

    Nursing I Geriatrics
    Nursing II Rehab & Med Surg & two days in surgery
    Nursing III Peds, Psy, & Maternity
    Nursing IV Med Surg & Telemetry

    Talk about going nuts! Word is is that they are planning on switching these around. Another change that has happened is that for anyone applying for any of the medical programs you have to have gotten an B+ or better in A & P I & II or they will not accept you!
