    I was just accepted into the Post-Accel Nursing Program at Worcester too! I'm trying to find out more information about the program in order to make my decision.

    I posted this on another thread as well, but I am accepted and attending MCPHS Worcester in the fall of 2013! I am beyond excited and I cannot wait to meet/ talk to everyone else that plans on attending! I was wondering if anyone knew anything about the Worcester/ Manchester Nursing Scholarship, like if we have to apply for it or when we would be notified if we qualify for it.
    Thank you and I look forward to hearing from all of you!

    As I am from the area, I didn't apply to live on campus because I didn't like the area it was in and I figured it would be more affordable to rent and buy my own groceries, or just commute from my parent's house. I actually just found a loft apartment near Chandler Street and Park Ave in Worcester and I am moving in May! Has anybody else figured out where they plan on living?

    So, I found out I got in to this program last Wednesday. I pretty sure I am going here, but I have not sent in the deposit. However, I would like to know what your deciding factor was in choosing to live near by the campus. I am in a similar situation. I own and live in a house in Randolph, Ma about 1 hour away from campus without traffic (according to google maps). I am not concern about paying a mortgage and rent since that will be taken care of via leasing. Nonetheless, I am curious about what made you decide against commuting? Snow storms, stress, traffic, Lost study time commuting, or all the above?

    Hi Pat!

    Congrats on your acceptance! There were a few deciding factors I had on moving closer. First, I commuted from my house in Southbridge to UMass Boston for my senior year, which is roughly an hour and ten minutes away (without traffic). I just feel like I was (and still am) wasting a large amount of time and gas commuting. The two hours I spent in the car everyday could have been used for studying. Second, my boyfriend and I have been thinking of moving out of my house regardless of what I chose for school. I wanted to find a place that was close enough to walk to school if I had to and made the inevitable study dates a lot more accessible, yet I didn't want to live right smack in the middle of Worcester. Let me know if you have any other questions!

    Hello there,

    I also got accepted into the Worcester program for Fall 2013. I'm very excited but also really nervous because I'm moving all the way from the west coast.
