I also did the MSN through UofP and found it very fast-paced. I did double all classes and skipped all breaks and did it in a year. However, my ultimate goal was to be an advanced practice nurse so I did an additional year at a post-MSN CNS program.
I graduated in May 05 and now looking back, know that it was a very hard year (no vacation, no breaks). However, glad that I did it.
