Oh what shall I do? Accelerated at NAU or 2 year at UW

  1. Hi All,

    I'm a post-bac student changing career fields. I've been working in an acute care hospital and have gained valuable patient care experience for almost 2 years. I recently got accepted to University of Washington's 2 year BSN program and Northern Arizona's 12 month ABSN program. I'm having a tough time making a decision on where I should go. Both cities are excellent! If you have had experience with either of these programs maybe you could help me!?

    -Will I retain more info at a traditional program?
    -Job prospects?
    -What makes UW #1 nursing program besides what US News has to say?
    -Will my clinical sites make a big difference?

    Any info would be great!

    Since you have healthcare experience I would go with the accelerated program. Just be ready for a quick ride.

    I'm doing an accelerated program hopefully this fall! It seems like the best option because you go to school year round instead of breaking for summer like universities do.
