Let me just tell you up front that what worked for me might not work for you. Some people have to study a lot to get As and others can study less and get As.
My kids were 7 months old and 4 year years old when I started the accelerated program. I think my wife would have divorced me if I spent 90 hours in class and studying.
I would put in a little time reviewing material for an everyday class and then do lots of hours studying for exams and writing papers when they came along.
It also helped that I became friends with some really smart classmates. We studied together at times, did happy hour, lots of class projects, and pushed each other to get good grades.
For me, Maternity and Peds wasn't as stressful as first semester skills pass offs. Maternity was maybe a little more challenging because it's specialized and the tests were difficult.
My grades didn't fluctuate all that much throughout nursing school. I believe that most of my classmates were consistent in their grades as well. My thinking is if you got As and Bs so far, you'll most likely get that grade level throughout.
If you are able to learn concepts quicker than average, are confident in your study habits and usually get good grades, I think the accelerated track might be a good fit.
