    I received my acceptance letter in the mail Saturday Congrats to all those who've been accepted... looking forward to meeting you all (we should start up some kind of facebook group!) Good luck to those still waiting. And to those who were not admitted, keep trucking! You will end up exactly where you're meant to be.

    Hi Karat- I know this post is years and years old. But Im curious to know where you ended up and if you ever found the path you were looking for. I find myself in the same predicament and would appreciate any feedback/advice.
    Thanks!

    Hey all!
    So I recently graduated with my BA and am planning to pursue nursing. However, I'm torn between entering an accelerated program, which would take about a year and going straight into a master's program, which would take 2-3 years. I eventually do want to pursue my masters but, the former sounds so much more appealing of course because of the short amount of time that would allow me jump into the field and because I feel like it would be best to get as much experience before choosing and pursuing a specialty.
    Do you think it is more advantageous to go straight into a masters program? Or would you recommend attaining my BSN first and after a few years, go for the masters? All the while, I'm hearing that the job market for nursing is looking grim, which make me altogether skeptical in going this route at all. Any thoughts?
    I'd appreciate any feedback

    How has your experience been in paying off these loans? Was it worth it, or would you recommend choosing a less expensive though lengthier program?
    thanks!

    -How were you able to afford tuition?
    -In terms of "healthcare experience," how is this best achieved? Simply volunteering at a hospital? I've found that it is very difficult to do so, what advice would you give.

    Hey NMH,
    I was looking into applying to the accelerated BSN program at Concordia this upcoming semester and was hoping you could give me any feedback on your overall experience. Would you recommend it?
