    Just started Barry's second degree BSN. It's very time consuming. A lot more like high school than college. I mean there's a quiz every week in the sciences. There is free tutoring. Some classes have homework. This is all probably due to the fact that you have to maintain a B in all your nursing classes and a B average. Everyone here is extremely helpful and nice. Not to mention that this place is full of future nurses.

    I went to a state school before here so I don't have any complaints, however some people do. They want more personalized attention (every teacher knows my name that's enough for me) and more hand holding. Personally, I love it here and I wouldn't do anything different. Nurses have respect here and they are a valued part of the school community. Well Good Luck

    I'm looking at TJU (Thomas Jefferson Univesity) in PHilly and Drexel's program. Drexel starts twice a year, TJU is just once. I hear they are both good programs, I am in the process of researching them. They both have open houses coming, I suggest researching them and then attending! Can't write a lot right now, but those are the programs! Oh yeah, I think villanova also has a 2nd degree program, (many places do but they either aren't accelerated or aren't highly publicized). University of delaware also has one! Check out allnursingschools.com
