Is this doable? ABSN program

  1. 0 So I was looking on Purdue Calumet's website and am thinking of applying to their accelerated program. After thinking about this for several months now, I am reconsidering their ABSN program. Is this a doable schedule? I am fearful I will fall behind and fail, but I have heard great things about this school and the program. Can someone explain what I would be learing in each class each semester.
    If you had the opportunity to take this absn program would you go this route (knowing this would be your schedule)? Please note, I am taking pre-req's right now, but so far I have a 3.5 GPA.

    I'm not a Purdue student, but I am an ABSN student. My schedule is about the same as the one you posted. I didn't think I would have made it passed the first semester, but now I'm one semester left from graduating. These ABSN programs are tough, but doable. Prioritize, study hard, don't give up, and you'll eventually find the light at the end of the exhausting tunnel.

    Personally, I found speaking with students in the program I will be attending eased my discomfort of the unknown. I even "met" these students on allnurses! They answered many of my questions about the program. (You can search for Purdue student accelerated and see what threads are pulled up.)

    To communicate with some students in the program, you can also call the school and ask if they can give you some email addresses.

    If you don't apply, you most definitely will not be accepted or begin classes.
