    Just thought I would update this since someone was kind enough to PM me the information I was asking for. It seems in your first term you have 1 day/week lab, 1 day/week clinical and 1-2 days/week of exams. The skills lab is on the Boston campus and the exams are at the Burlington one. Clinicals obviously, can be anywhere....you also have 5 classes first term but they are all online and self paced.

    Second term you have 4 online classes
    2 clinicals
    1 skills lab
    1/2 days of exams ( Burlington)
    total of 4/5 days commuting

    Third term
    3 classes
    2 clinicals
    0 labs
    1/2 exams ( Burlington)
    Commuting: 3/4 days a week

    Final term ( for BSN)
    2 classes
    2 clinicals
    1/2 exams

    I'm sorry I don't know how many hours per day the lab skills are or how many per day the clinicals are yet, but if anyone knows and would like to share that would be great. If I find out that information I'll post here.

    Thanks for the info EmmKay! Have you applied yet? I'm starting this May.. 3 days after my graduation from my undergrad . I'm trying to tie up all loose ends before I start! For those of you who started already last month, what should I be doing to prepare?? How are you liking the program? Any advice would be much appreciated.

    hi Kcarm,
    Thanks for your post! That really helps those of us hoping to apply...I'm also wondering does anyone take public transport into Burlington? I just can not afford to get a car the next few years and I'm wondering if I can do my clinicals without or car pool or something?
