Actually I graduated a couple years ago from an accelerated program in WI. It wasn't too bad either. The only time I remember it being really tough to time manage was during the summer portion where we had 3 eight hour days of clinical, 2 hours post clinical disc., and q fri we had a 4 hour class. All this time spent in class not to mention coming home from clinical to prepare for the following day (care plans
I worked (as did most other accel.nrsg students) one/two shifts a week on weekends at the same hospital where i had clinical that summer, it seemed like I never left that place. During this time I was also trying to manage to get a few weekends off to go cross country to visit my boyfriend who livesd 2000 miles away, and planning a wedding a month before graduating...yes this can be done.
In general, I am VERY happy I chose the accelerated route rather than go ADN. It gives you more options in case you decide to go back for more education. I would recommend it.
Make sure you have good time-management skills and are prepared, time does seem to go by fast. I remember always looking at the semester ahead of me and getting really intimiated that I would not be able to do it all. It definitly teaches you some good time management skills and it can be intense at times but then again so is nrsg on the floors!
Good luck to you!
