LMU BSN accelerated program '14

  1. I applied to LMU(cedar bluff) and am waiting to hear back if I was accepted or not. I was wondering from anyone who has went through their nursing program if they have any feedback about the program itself. I am nervous and excited to hear something soon but also want some insight on the program since I can't find anything! Thanks!!!

    Hi McMann83,

    I just finished my first semester at LMU in Cedar Bluff and I REALLY love it. If you are looking for a great school, this is it. The faculty and staff are the most supportive I've ever experienced and they truly want you to succeed. This is an accelerated program so it is fast paced and you will be busy. I probably spent close to 50-60 hours a week on school stuff, including class time and clinical. The makeup of our class is widely varied - many students are older and have several children, some are first time parents, and some are very young and without children. I can't tell you exactly how many people passed this semester, but I know it was almost everyone. I'm friends with a few people who have several children and they do often talk about the challenges of playing all the different roles they have right now. There are also many students that work, some full time and some part time. It will be difficult, if not impossible to keep a traditional 8-5 job in this program. Some students work the night shift and go to school during the day. There are several people in the senior class who worked full time through the duration of the program, so it can be done. Basically, it will be difficult, but if it is what you want, you'll do whatever it takes to make it happen. That's not to say that it won't take some serious sacrifice. I have made a LOT of friends and I've learned an incredible amount. This program is tough, but fun! If you have any specific questions, please feel free to ask! Good luck!

    Thanks so much for the insight. It calmed my nerves. Iam really looking forward to applying. Seems like a great college. How far do they send tou for clinicals. I was reading somewhere that its more part time program an to keep aid obviously you need to be full time. Iam doing pre reqs now an some.classes that will go towards my bsn. Not sure if I will go that route but it keeps me recieving aid an if I do go bsn, well ill have a head start. Iam not to sure what else to ask but im sure ill have tons to ask as the days get closer to me moving. Im thinking I should apply now in january for fall would they allow this? Thanks again for everything
