Anyone know about the Quinnipiac U. 2nd degree BSN program?

Hello CT Nurses!

I am considering moving back to CT (where my family is) in order to get a BSN. I am looking at Quinnipiac University because I already have a BS in Sports Medicine, and with them I can do my BSN in one year.

Has anyone completed this program? It is very pricey and that is one of my concerns. The upside is that I will have a lot of family support and can finish in one year.

I am also researching the Yale direct entry MSN program. However, my concern was that I would like to practice for a while prior to deciding on a speciality so I can have some experience under my belt.

Any thoughts would be appreciated!

Thanks,

Stephanie

You are very wise to want to practice for a while after receiving a degree. The accelerated BSN programs do ot give you much hands on clinical. I also feel that people in these programs are at a distinct disadvantage. We have Yale CNM students all the time: have for years. The last one (who was a non-nurse in the program) did not pass her part with us. I think these types of students in these programs are at a distinct disadvantage.

I am glad to see students wanting to go into nursing but I do NOT tink these fast track programs are the way to accomplish this.

Best of luck.

Do you know how much less clinical experience one of the accelerated programs give vs. a normal BSN?
