Nebraska Methodist College Accelerated Program - page 4

I am curious if anyone knows anything about the accelerated program at NMC. It is one of the only ones around that I can find who will accept you with an associates degree. How competitive is it to... Read More

    Yes, you would have had to do the FAFSA.

    I was never aware of any drug testing during nursing school.

    I completely agree with mochamonster! I graduated from the most recent accelerated class of 2010 CONGRATS to all of you that have been accepted. This will definitely be a life changing experience. I would like to add that even though the program is difficult you can have a social life. You just have to prioritize. I had classmates that went out every weekend. I was the occasional type, and most of my class graduated with honors or high honors.

    You will quickly find that it wont pay to be competitive. Working with your fellow classmates will be very beneficial throughout the program.

    As far as preceptorship is concerned.....it is roughly 5 weeks when you will be paired with a nurse at a hospital. You will complete approx 200 hours with that nurse. During that time you really wont have to go to campus except for once a week.

    I absolutely loved the program, and would recommend it to any pre-nursing student. I went straight into a DNP program to become a nurse practitioner, and Methodist has definitely prepared me for that.

    Hope that helps

    I'm excited to start the program as well. I just got a revised financial aid award and it looks like I won 2 scholarships so I am pretty happy about that. Anything helps!

    I'll be starting there too in Jan 11! I'm glad to see others feel the same way because I'm feeling like the program might be too overwhelming!

    The program is tough but doable. Remember others have done it before you. My advice is to do what you can to simplify your life before hand - exactly what that means depends on your life situation..... come up with simple meals, get your household organized, etc.... so those things will be less stressful.

    One good thing is that you get a week off between semesters. You can use that to sleep, clean house or get a jumpstart on the next semester's reading - whatever you need most. You will be amazed by how much you learn in a short period of time. You can do it!
