Hi!! I’m currently an ABSN student and I’m very pleased in my decision in attending Concordia. The workload is exactly what you expect an accelerated program to be; intense, challenging and slightly stressful, however it’s doable. Feel free to ask specific questions, I was in your shoes about 2 months ago so I understand the anticipation :)

Fundamentals is the first 7 weeks of the semester which is followed by Med-Surg which is the last 7 weeks of the semester. Both classes have a lab component where you’ll be hands-on with your classmates as well as the simulation mannequins. The remaining classes are Health Assessment (w/ lab), Patho-Pharmacology, and Spirituality. During the entire 1st semester the schedule is like:

Monday - Clinicals 7am-7pm (time varies depending on clinical instructor)

Tuesday - Health Assessment 8am-10am, Lab 12pm-4pm, Spirituality 5pm-8:30pm 

Wednesday -  Funds or Med-Surg 8am-11am, Lab 12pm-4pm

Thursday - Funds or Med-Surg 8am-11am

Friday - Patho-Pharm 2:30pm-5:30pm

The cohort is divided into two groups; A and B, so everyone doesn’t have the same exact schedule. For example, some students have clinicals on a different day.  

Clinicals started during my 4th week of Fundamentals and has been every Monday since then being that I’m now in Med-Surg.
