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 hopes of qualifying for Creighton's accelerated nursing program. My anatomy professor said he knew someone who tried Creighton's program and "it almost killed her." Seriously? I really don't want to opt for a slower-paced and more traditional route; I don't have the time (I'm in my 40s) and I don't have the resources. Any opinions on this?
