Hello all: I read some interesting advice re the cost of Creighton University's accelerated nursing program. I have another question: Is it really that intense? Right now I'm at a two-year college getting my science credits in... Read More

    I completed the accelerated program at Creighton last year. LOVE IT! yes is "intense" but its absolutely wonderful. I was a transplant from California and only moved out there for school, and now im back in California. The classes are small and the cohort becomes your little family. The school has great connections with the local hospitals. The good reputation will help you get a job once you graduation. I highly recommend this program. The clinical opportunities were wonderful. I've had friends attend programs here in CA and hated it.

    I also completed the accelerated program last year, and I think it is a wonderful program. Very stressful, but very worth it in the end. It is pricey, but we got a wonderful education. I had great clinical experiences, and I was able to get a terrific senior preceptorship that helped me to get a great job after graduating. The cohort really does become a family.

    I wish I would have received some honest reviews about the program, before I started it. Anyone can get in here... and its not very difficult to pass. So if you want to go to somewhere where you can get in and know you will most likely pass, go to Creighton. The program is not challenging and requires a ton of bs busy work...On top of this and being completely disorganized... the program is a total rip off...

    I was just accepted into this program for this Fall and I have spoken to about 5 RNs at my hospital that have nothing but great things to say! They said it was intense but well worth it, one of my CNA instructors went there as well and she said it was one of the best decisions she ever made. I'm going in with a positive attitude, everywhere has its ups and downs and we cannot base our experiences off of anyone elses. Good luck with the program to any that will be attending!

    I am also a CA resident considering Creighton Accelerated BSN Program. Was it difficult to transfer your RN license back to CA in order to work? I'm not exactly sure how this works. Any advice would be great.

    Can I ask how is your experience in the program so far?

    Hello,

    I was accepted for Spring 2015! I am from Ventura area in CA and trying to figure out if I should make the jump to Omaha for a year and then come back to CA after. How is the job market if you have your degree from out of state? What are the procedures so that I can start working right away in CA (regarding the NCLEX,license, etc)? I also have a 3 year old son (I am by myself) that will be coming with me so it will be a big move. Advice on places to live? Are there other single moms in the program that have gotten through it?
