    Hi Joanne82 - I graduated from NJCU's Accerated Program May 2008. I took my Boards and passed. Now I am having difficulty finding an RN position. I don't know if the market in northern nj is glutted or not. But I keep trying. My advice to you if you get in the program is to be sure you stay on top of everything. My class had a bumpy experience, but probably because we were the first class through the program. As far as what GPA's and such, there is no rhyme or reason to it. I will keep my fingers crossed for you.

    hi secondcareergal - i am hoping to get into the program may of 2009. could you tell me how may people were in your class?
    i'm just curious how selective they have to be.

    congrats on the graduation and good luck with the job search!

    Kaylah18 - NJCU took 45 students (approx.) at the NJCU Campus in Jersey City. I think they probably took the same amount at the Communiversity. Good Luck and Hope you get in.

    to anyone who has been through the accelerated program, could you tell me if you had the time to work a part-time job, and if so, what kind of job was it?

    thanks in advance!

    You really don't have much time between studying, etc. If you absolutely need to work, I would suggest a weekend day. Remember, it is alot of material in a short amount of time. Good Luck.

    I'm looking for current/past students of the accelerate course and wanted to know how well prepared you felt from clinicals? Also, how accessable are the profs? Do they explain things well? Is there tutoring available?
  11. by   secondcareergal
    Hi rgirl - I am a former student of the accelerated program at NJCU. The clinicals give you some exposure, but my opinion is that until you do it 100 times, you don't own the skill. The professors are pretty good, but if you want tutoring, you will have to speak to the professor of the class in question directly. If you don't ask, you won't hear anything about tutoring. Good Luck in the program.

    Hi secondcareergal! Thanks for your quick reply! I've been accepted to another program, and I'm trying to decide between NJCU and the other. Were you pleased with this program, or did you wish you had gone somewhere else? Was 12 months too short a time? Is it "sink or swim" or are there support systems?
  13. by   secondcareergal
    If you were accepted somewhere else, I would compare the two programs. NJCU can be a sink or swim program. Does the time you finish to get your degree make a difference? The 12 month program is very fast and you will be living and breathing this program for the next year. I hope that this was somewhat of a help to you.
