I am in my 3rd semester (out of 4) at MDC. It is an excellent, AFFORDABLE program! I was in the accelerated and decided the pace was too fast and switched to the generic program. It's only 4 months longer than the accelerated with the same degree (ADN). The teachers are dedicated to helping students and you get plenty of chances to choose the clinical sites you want. It's a good idea to also apply for scholarships
at MDC because not many nursing students do and money accumulates at the end of the year due to lack of interest for them (again, it is an affordable school for those who need assistance in paying tuition and books).
Also, not many people know this but MDC just got approved on the college level for a new BSN program and is now awaiting approval from the state. They're looking at offering the program in Fall/Spring of 2008. Even if you apply now for an earlier entry date, MDC students willl likely get offered seats for the BSN program.
One last thing --- it's best to enter the program in the Fall then in the Spring. This way, you don't get stuck taking Med-Surg in the summer (which is killer).
Hope this helps!
