How many semesters is your program?

  1. I start my adn program this fall and am wondering how long other students programs last. My program will last 5 semesters, it seems short from what I've heard. Any input? How long was your program? If all goes well I'll graduate early 2013.

    I'm in an accelerated, second degree BSN program that will last 4 semesters (16 months; fall, spring, summer, fall). The ADN program at my school is two years or four semesters. I do not know if that includes summers but I don't think it does.

    At my school it's an ADN program with 5 semesters (Fall, Spring, Summer, Fall, Spring) I also start this fall and will graduate (hopefully) Spring of 2013. I'm excited! I can't wait to get started... been taking all the non-nursing courses for 2 years while on the wait list. Congrats on starting this fall too!

    Thanks for the responses. I thought 5 was short, I guess it's average. I'll go fall/winter/summer/fall/winter. My school does winter instead of spring, but it get's out in May. If all goes well I'll graduate May 2013.

    We have a 16 week semester, 4 8 week semesters, another 16 week semester, and then 2 more 8 week semesters. It comes out the same as 5 semesters.

    I got the rough outline of the next two years for the BSN program I am about to start in the fall. It says we only go Fall, Spring, Fall, Spring... which is hard to believe. Totally thought there would have been a Summer thrown in there. But hey, I'm not complaining.
