Oct 25, '10I just recently got accepted into part time nursing clinicals at the lancaster campus. I am really nervous as well, but at the same time am very excited to get started. I start January 2011. All of your advice has helped me out tremendously. I can buy white pants somewhere else???? Thanks.

In order to evaluate a nursing program looking at just how many complete the program is too narrow. You need to look at the nursing board pass rate of the graduates. I know my campus has had 100% as long as I've been teaching there.
I will admit to a little bias of being a clinical instructor at one of the campuses (no I will not say which), but I'm not selling the program. I have a job as long as there are students to teach.
As for the week long vacation, it depends on when you plan it. If you expect to be able to take a week off during the semester, no program would allow for that, not just HACC. There is a finite time to teach a lot of material. It's not like cutting a computer class. Again, it is the nature of the career path you are chosing. Nursing is not like what you see on Nurse Jackie or House.
But if it is during a break, yes you will be able go.
Good luck as you start your new semester. Think of it as a type of boot camp
