Lansing Community College Accelerated RN Program, Is it Too Fast?

  1. 0 Hello Ladies:
    First off, congratulations to you all, by now most of you have completed the RN program at LCC. I am currently taking pre reques, and I will be applying to the accelerated program during the Spring 2014. As I was reading some of the comments, I noticed that there were some mixed feeling and hesitation about the intensity of the 2nd degree/accelerated program.

    I was hoping to get some feed -back form you all as previous students, as to how the faster pace went for you. Would you recommend the accelerated program or not?

    Thank you in advance.

    Moved to our Michigan State Nursing Programs forum. Look around for similar posts about program.

    I'm in the traditional track, 2 year program and think it's overwhelming at times... Okay a lot of the time and I can't imagine the accelerated program. The benefits though is that you don't take summers off and I think that helps to continue to build on knowledge rather than lose some during that time. I personally wouldn't do it if you plan on working or have kids, but you can do anything if you really want it. Good luck!

    This is an older thread but I just wanted to say that I was in the 1st accelerated group at LCC. It was stressful but totally doable. I worked part time through part of the program and many of my classmates worked & also had children. If I had to go back in time, I wouldn't do it any other way.
