- Feb 19 by chelc31Hello!
I'm new to this site but I just got excepted into the Hendersonville accelerated nursing program that starts in Fall 2013! I'm so very excited! Any one else on here accepted into the Hendersonville program? I am relocating from Washington State and it would be wonderful to know someone before jumping into this program!
- Feb 19 by Tinker88Congrats Chelc!!! I am not at Hendersonville, but I will be at Germantown's campus! I'm just so excited for all of us on here who have been accepted! I think we should all keep in touch on here (or other forum) while we are in the program! It's going to be tough but we can do it!
I think we go to classes on Saturday during the accelerated program and we do not get breaks (including federal holidays). Can anyone clarify this?
If anyone is currently in Union's accelerated nursing program, I know many of us would love to know more about what it's like! Please share how it's going.
- Feb 20 by combsj25Hi chelc I have been accepted into Union U Hendersonville campus for Fall 2013. I am Jillian - it is nice to "meet" you. I will try to send you a PM so we can exchange information. I will not know anyone in the Hendersonville area and/or at the program either.
Tinker: I have heard that Union will try to keep Saturdays limited, but pretty much only guarantee Sundays off. I have heard it is quite intense for sure and that free time will be non existent.
I love the idea of us exchanging info and trying to keep in touch for support system - even though we will not be at the same campus - we will all be going through the same things at the same times. I saw where there was a facebook page for students per cohort, but I assume this is specific to campus location only and doesn't include all campuses (But I do not know this for sure).
Wishfulrn: Any news yet?
- I am currently in the ABSN program Gtwn campus and yes it is very intense. Intense is putting it lightly. Some of our clinicals are on Saturday, no classes. The first session is the easiest, so enjoy the "free time" b/c once Jan term starts, free time is limited if at all. We do not get breaks, even during Christmas we had assignments/readings that we had to complete. My cohort created a facebook page once we knew who was actually in the program....some that were accepted did not start b/c of family/money issues.
- Feb 20 by combsj25Thanks for responding!
How many hours per day would you say you are putting in? I talked to someone previously and she said she was literally putting in 16-18 hours every single day. Just wanted to see if you found this to be the case.
- Not sure why my last post is not showing, but yes, my day is that long or longer if I have the idea that sleep is for the weak. My typical day starts at 530 or 430 and ends b/w 1 am and 2 am. I am always studying no matter where I am, if I could drive and study I would.
- Feb 20 by Tinker88Beautiful901...you are so thoughtful to come on here and take the time to share information with us! I just wanted to tell you! I am so nervous about the program. I'm not worried about session 1, but I worry about Jan-Dec sessions. Do you get to choose what time you take courses? I doubt you choose clinicals.
- You are welcome, I was in the same boat as all of you last year and some one from this site, helped me. I will answer any questions that I can. PM me if you would like.
No, Ms. Wendy registers us for all of our classes. Clinicals are scheduled by the instructors. We do not choose our clinical sites, but the instructors do ask what area of town we live in, and this may get you to a clinical site close to home. Either way, you may or may not get a clinical site close to home. Once Christmas break was over, we hit the ground running or flying! All I can say is or heads were spinning on that 1st day and will still spin at this point.
- Feb 21 by wishfulrn2beHello all! Combsj25, no word yet.....still hopeful! Has anyone had the actual interview yet? What type of questions were asked?
