There's an Apollo 4-5 miles from my work and I've dealt with them before back when I was looking into Massage Therapy.
Our community colleges (Maricopa) has re-adjusted the pre-reqs so I only need one more semester before I can apply for the nursing program at these colleges, which was my original plan.
But the idea of an accelerated program does seem interesting. Especially since they seem more (financially) motivated to helping you out. I must admit that it feels that the local colleges help me because it's their job, but sometimes I feel like I'm almost an annoyance when I ask questions regarding when I can apply for the program, etc.
I plan to continue on to get my BSN and then pursue a career as a CRNA down the road.
I worry that the competition of the CRNA program and the fact that there's only one school in AZ, might merit sticking with the more traditional route.
I had suggested this advice to a poster in another thread, but truth be told, I have no real idea of whether there's a difference if both give you the ability to go on and become an "RN".
Any ideas or experiences? I searched and found nothing current, so I hope I'm not resurrecting a dead horse here
The RN program at Apollo is new to me, they didn't have it last I spoke with them - here's some more info:
