I just received my acceptance letter for the Howard Community College accelerated RN program starting in May, 2009 (and running until July, 2010).
I wanted to see if there was anybody else on the local forum that has applied and/or been accepted to the program yet... I'd love to meet some fellow students before this (intense) program actually starts.
congratulations! you are correct about it being "intense". it's definitely not for quitters. there's an exam every 3-4 weeks. be prepared to spend saturdays/sundays/evenings in the skills lab. no social life for 14 months! the teaching staff is very supportive and are always available to the students. you are lucky that they extended the program to 14 months. we had to do it in 11 months
. yes you are required to have all your prerequisites done (gpa at least 3.0; 3.25 in sciences) prior to even turning in your application.
and yes, we did have a 100% pass rate.
