Bellarmine accelerated BSN programRegister Today!
- by flygirl80 Nov 17, '10I have been accepted into the accelerated BSN at Bellarmine to start in May 2011. Anyone in the accelerated program there have any info they can pass on? I know it is a tough course and a a year of nothing but nursing, but what are the typical days like? I am finished with my pre reqs so I have from now until May to get a jump start on things. Can anyone in the program recommend things to study in advance?

- Nov 23, '10 by flygirl80From what I understand it can vary depending on availability and scheduling. I think any in the area could be used and are probably rotated among a few of them, but I am not too sure.
- Dec 29, '10 by organichombreGood for you! Bellarmine's accelerated RN is very demanding both physically and emotionally. The 7 week semesters are a killer and you have very little down time so take advantage of it. Bellarmine goes to the VA, Norton, Baptist East, Jewish, just about everywhere. Fundamentals is where you'll first go to and after the 1st second weeks you go to the hospital 2 days a week for 8 hrs a day. Classes are pretty much everyday maybe a day off if all your prereq's are done. A test every week and you need a 77 on everything to pass I think. Study anatomy and physiology as much as possible. If you have the opportunity to work an a nurses aide or volunteer do it! Aside from all that it's a rewarding place to teach or be a student. I know because I work there as a clinical instructor!
