Hi, I am looking at accelerated 2nd degree BSN programs in several states (I'm currently in MN). One of the programs that I am possibly interested in is Winston-Salem State. I saw on the website that if you accept admission to... Read More

    Hi Nogames_justsports. Thanks I really appreciate that. I am loving this website. I have found so many answers to my questions concerning the accelerated nursing program. Yes I must agree with you, taking these prereq's classes at WSSU has definitely been an experience to say the least. OMG, registration was a nightmare!!! I was almost ready to throw in the towel and give up but I am determined to make it and am not going to allow administration to deter me, you know. I have a question for you, do you have any study tips or advice concerning Anatomy & Physiology I. I'm currently taking A&P I and the professor doesn't give good reviews for exams. Our last exam he gave was so terrible that he had to curve the entire classes grades. We'll ask him for a review and he'll say study your chapter book, notes, quizzes.....heck that's everything. I was aiming for an A, now I'm being realistic and aiming for a high B.....

    Hi nogames_justsports. You say you took 1/2 of your prereqs at WSSU, if you don't mind me asking, where did you take the other 1/2? Did you do take any online. I'm looking into taking some online like Chemistry & Life Span. The Chemistry class that I need is only offered during the day for Spring semester and I work 8-5, M-F. I saw where Forsyth Tech Community College offers Chem & Life Span both on line for Spring semester.

    Thanks again for your time.

    I received my BSN from WSSU. I truly enjoyed my time there, but like a previous poster stated, some the admin staff left a lot to be desired.

    Hello again spalding75,
    Oh it does sound like your AP professor is not giving much guidance - could you tell from the first exam where most of the info came from? If you happen to have ****, do take the time to try and understand it all because I had him at GTCC (he was working there part time as well as WSSU), and he was tough - he really wants you to understand all of the material rather than simply memorizing it. If there's a website that was given with your A&P book use it, it will help make more sense if you view the videos that's on there. I took the other half of my classes at GTCC, they do offer a lot of night classes..a friend of mine took Chem at night and although it was hard she really liked her professor and the night classes seem to be a little more relaxed (as far as professors working with you more) than day classes. I didn't take any online classes except Psych because all of mine required a lab. I have applied at Chapel Hill as well as WSSU so I tried to incorporate all my classes to suffice for both so I never had to take LifeSpan. Definitely push hard for those A's!!!! let me know if you have any more questions!

    Does anyone have any info on the scheduling of the classes- how man hours a week/ days per week would a student in this program send on campus or doing clinicals? Also, another thing I was wondering about... Does Baptist Hospial pay a standard salary rate for the 3 years that you are under contract? Or is it less give that they have funded your nursing education? I'm looking into this program, and it sounds like a great deal. Just wondering about the details. Thank you to anyone that can offer any information!!

    I personally would not work for WFUBMC, especially if it involves a contract!! I have several nursing friends currently employed there (under 2 or more contract year commitments) & they are not happy . This particular contract had a lot of "fine print" & lots of money that must be paid back if the contract is not fulfilled!!! Make sure you read EVERYTHING before you sign it, if you decide to go with WFUBMC.
