- 0Sep 17, '10 by Acestudent21I 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
