Yes, rough. But doable. You literally can't work at all. There won't be enough time. Also you won't have time to reflect what you learned.

I too am on my second bachelors degree and went the way of an accelerated program. It is fast...I do feel so far that it is pretty rushed and don't feel like I am getting the same degree of education as I did in my previous BA program (totally different field) or in my LPN program which I did at a community college about 5yrs ago.

Due to the fact I have been working as a nurse (if they still consider us lpns nurses anymore) for 4yrs and have had a great deal of schooling previously that I am not going to suffer too badly by the fast pace in the gen-eds and science classes.

I will be starting the core program with clinicals in June..so can not tell you how the quality and time management is yet. I do agree with the other poster...you really can not work in these type of programs...due to the amount of classwork/study there is as well as your class schedule changes so quickly it may be hard for an employer to adjust schedules every two months.

I have not logged in for a while, but thanks for your response. I have just begun the application process for the ABSN. I plan to apply to RESU. Everything you said is what I was thinking. I think that you can either get a lot out of the program if you have had pervious years of education.
