- 0May 2, '12 by BostonRobinThere's still hope for those on the wait list...I was shocked to receive an e-mail today offering me a spot! I was #9 on the wait list. I e-mailed the Admissions Coordinator a couple of weeks ago and she told me my chances were slim of being accepted. Great news but my head is spinning!

There's still hope for at least one more person on the waiting list. I was moved from the waiting list and accepted but I just called Umass today to let them know I am declining and going elsewhere. It was a tough decision!
Be prepared for a mandatory all day orientation on Tuesday the 22nd. Good luck to whoever fills my spot!
- 0Dec 13, '12 by crissy07I am looking into either the traditional BSN or accel BSN. Anyone want to share how either the schedules are like in either program? I have heard people are able to work during the program but that is different from person to person. I have a toddler and can't go without working. Would be great to get a sense of how the schedule is like or if anyone has a similar situation.

I'm in the accelerated program. You CAN work. They'll discourage you but you can definitely do it. There are 2 students who have kids and are probably working 16-20 hrs a week. I'm working as a PCA about 2 days a week, and have plenty of time to do homework and keep my grades up. Here is what our schedule has been so far:
Summer: Tues/Wed/Thurs - classes all day
Fall: Mon and Wed - Class 8-10:50, plus 2 days of clinical for med/surg, mental health
Winter: M-F class/clinical 7-5 for 3 weeks
Spring: Class Tuesdays 11-830, 2 days of clinical for community/ pediatrics (some people only have pediatrics for 1/2 of the semester, others have it the entire time)
Summer: not sure yet!
We also had about 2 weeks off in between summer and fall, and about 2 between fall and winter. There are no breaks between winter-spring and spring-summer other than the March spring break.
Hope this helps & good luck!
