I got accepted into 2 nursing programs and I can't decide! One is accelerated program(16months,texas tech) and the other one is traditional program(30months,NMSU). Most of people recommend to go to accelerated program, but I am not sure if I can handle the study materials. I need to take 16credit hours in summer, I am afraid if I fail and kick out of the program. I just wonder how hard it will be, and there is actually students that fail and kick out of the program. please give me any advice!!!! Thank you!

only you can answer if you are up to the academic rigors that would be required during an accelerated program, but if you have any doubt consider how the school handles any type of failure... for instance will they immediately dismiss you from the program? allow you to retake a course with the next cohort? place you in a traditional program?

Also know that dismissal from a nursing program makes it that much more difficult to find another program that will accept you as a student.

Best of luck.
