I'm in the program now and LOVE IT. I started in May and will graduate next May. Summer semester was pretty difficult, but I'm told it's the hardest semester and it was still definitely doable, as long as you can make a serious time commitment. I honestly believe the directors and instructors want us to succeed. They seem to understand the rigor of the program and adjust their teaching methods and course structure accordingly. I have yet to have an unfair, boring, or less than expert instructor. This is just my experience, though.
We took the first hour of a three hour pharmacology course, clinical decision making, health assessment, and communication during the first half of the summer (ended before the July 4th weekend) and pathophysiology and lifespan I (combination OB theory and clinical) during the second half (which ended the first week in August). During the fall semester, starting this Monday, we'll take evidence-based practice and the 2nd two hours of the pharmacology course. We also have lifespan II for the first half of the semester and lifespan III for the second half (I think that's peds and gerontological nursing). Half of the students take public health in the fall, while half take it in the spring. Whichever semester you don't have public health, you have psych/mental health. Spring includes lifespan IV (I think it's adult nursing), community health and a couple of other classes I can't recall. We have plenty of breaks. We'll get a fall break and Thanksgiving break, a spring break and Easter break. I'm now at the end of a 2-week break between semesters.
You have the option of taking one elective in fall and one in spring. If you are interested in critical care, you can get a critical care certificate by choosing certain electives, like fluids and electrolytes or cardiopulmonary nursing. Fluids and electrolytes is supposed to be WONDERFUL, but very difficult. I don't know what this means as far as job opportunities go, but I imagine two comparable new grads applying for the same ICU position could be differentiated based on these extra electives. There are also other electives such as end of life care and adolescent sexuality, pregnancy and parenting. These might vary from one year to the next, but I'm pretty sure the critical care courses are a constant.
Our schedule has pretty much been 8-4 or 8-3, depending on the day, and our OB clinicals were from 7-5 twice a week. Fall semester for us is lecture Monday 8-3, Thursday and Friday 8-10, with clinicals 3 days a week (Tuesday and Wednesday, and either Thursday or Friday).
There are a wide variety of students in the program. There are many whose last degree wasn't in the sciences or in a health care related field. There are a lot of parents, and several older adults returning to college after long careers in another field, as well as students coming into the program immediately after graduating from their last bachelor's program.
Sorry I can't offer you more, but I've only completed 1 of the 3 semesters. Hopefully someone with more experience with the program will respond. PM me if you can think of any other questions I might be able to answer. Good luck!
