    Hi Guys,

    Just getting ready to start my program, an accelerated BSN (have a BS and MS in biological sciences) This is a second career for me having been in the IT world for 20 years. Will keep you posted on my progress and look here for answers and support. Anyone else out there in an accelerated BSN?

    Good luck to all! I am getting ready to start my second semester tomorrow in an accelerated BSN program. It is tough.....very different from my first BS degree in chemistry. Just don't read too much into the questions but then again, don't leave anything out.....it's a catch 22. NOT looking forward to second semester with Pharmacology, Ethics and Med-Surg.....way too much to do in one summer in my opinion, but I did sign up for it.....

    Fellas, i am just starting out on my journey, and to tell you the truth it makes no difference to me at all. i work in the natural foods business now and there are alot of women in this field. I am pretty confident I can handle it.
