REGARDING THE NEW ACCELERATED BSN PROGRAM
Hello, again. I spoke to an admission advisor and she was pretty in-depth about how this program will work, all while centering around the "Online and Clinical" aspect. Each student will have personal attention and time committed to them during certain "lab sessions", where 4-8 hours per week will be committed to learning on mannequins and learning in a new nursing laboratory (I really don't find this a sufficient amount of time per week for personal attention). In addition, there will be a nurse with a Masters in Nursing teaching and supervising during 8-10 hour clinical sessions per week (at one of 3 various hospitals, up to 45 minutes from campus). Although the advisor kept reiterating the fact that the students will not feel like this is an "Online" program, I still have my reservations.
I would love to hear other people's opinions on this topic since it's a BRAND NEW program and concept. I have my reservations on the structure of this program and their plans of placing future grads in 2 years. I wouldn't want to be stranded as a new grad and out $50,000 without knowing I won't be losing chances at jobs due to a fear of the "unknown" from job recruiters.
