I'm in the process of taking the required prereqs for Spalding's accelerated BSN program. I really need some opinions about the intensity of the program. I work full time days making $30,000 per year. I have an elementary age child and I can't afford to just stop working. My fiance is willing to pick up some of the load financially, BUT he can't do it all. I have always worked full time and went to school full time. I HAVE to work atleast 25 hrs per week while in the nursing program. During my last year of school while completing my first bachelor's degree I worked full time days, took 27 hrs per semester in classes and still managed at 3.7 gpa. I need to hear from people that are going through an accelerated program, Spalding if possible. What time are clinicals generally? How many classes did you generally take per session? How much clinical time do you have to do per session? Any advice is wanted!!!! I would also like to hear about places to possibly work while in the nursing program.
