    Yeah, I tried to get info from anybody before deciding which program, and couldn't find anything but second-hand hearsay about Metro's program. So I thought I should put something out there! There are 35 people left (started w/36), so it's a small group. Plus they split us into 2 groups for most of the classes. Program is divided into 9 6-week modules. Clinicals start in the 2nd module, so in June for us. Clinical placements are good, we've been all over (St. Joseph's, Denver Health, St. Anthony's, Lutheran, PSL, Children's, West Pines, clinics, schools...). Not to University, though, because their spots go to CU students. Experiences have really depended on the clinical preceptors, which aren't always determined by the school.

    I'm finishing up the Metro Accelerated program in May '09. I was accepted to Regis (too much $ for me, even shorter program) and CU, I chose Metro for the price and length of program. Metro's program is solid, and though I feel like it's hard to retain a lot of information when each class is only 6 weeks long, I think many nursing students are in the same boat with trying to learn all that information. I think the program does a good job of preparing students to pass the NCLEX. Most of the instruction is good to excellent, though there have been some bumps along the way. The pace is intense and you'll probably have no life for a year. I would say if you have a background in health care you shouldn't think twice about an accelerated program. If you're new to it, like me, you'll just have to work that much harder but it's still do-able.

    Hi, I'm trying to find out about Metro's BSN program, while I'm waiting to hear back about acceptance. I haven't been able to find out anything about the quality, reputation, difficulty, etc. of their program. How did your experience end up and do you have any additional info or suggestions? I've been accepted to Regis but have to take 5 additional classes for them, which adds up to big bucks with their tuition. Any help would be appreciated!
