OK. So i've been planning to apply to start nursing school for Fall 2005. My husband thinks it would be best if I waited and started January 2006 (1 semester later). If I was to do that, I would have Semester 1 from Jan-May. I'd get that summer off and would start Sem 2 in Fall 2006, Sem 3 in Jan 07 but then i'd have to go through that summer for Sem 4. (did you follow that?? lol). Then, i'd be starting Sem 5 Fall 07 and would be in school straight until graduation (Sem 6, preceptorship, Sem 7, Sem 8, preceptorship...our preceptorships run in the summer!)
So....is this too much to chew off? I've got a husband and 2 kids. I'm terrified of working straight through with no real break. I will only be working part time during first year and maybe part of 2nd year, but I wont have to during years 3 and 4.
I guess i'd like to hear from anyone who has or is going through an accelerated program.
