    dr. martin,

    I speak for myself when I say that I appreciate you taking the time to describe your girlfriend's experience with the program, however, most if not all of the people on this board have decided to attend the school and have already paid their deposits. It is counterproductive for us to give too much credence to one person's negative experience. I think we are all eager to start and going into it with an open mind and positive attitude. I am sure there will be challenges (after all, it is a very intense accelerated program - I have yet to read about any of these programs being "perfect"), but overall, we hope to make it as positive as possible. In the end, it's only 15 months of our lives and will result in a very valuable bachelor's degree that will lead us towards a great career. I think they are a young program and are working out more and more of the kinks every year.

    Lenabeth, that was well put. I have the sneakiest suspicion that dr. martin is the same person as gerim.

    I said the same exact thing malenurse2012. It must be a bitter student who was kicked out of the program or something.

    On another note, we will get through it guys!

    I'm still waiting for my letter. I've checked the mail daily for the past 3 weeks and still nothing. How long did it take from the interview process to receive a letter?

    I got my letter 2 days after my interview. Maybe you can call and ask when you can expect yours?

    Hehe Not I am not "gerim". I just wanted to share my opinions and experience of a boyfriend, who had to listen to her girlfriend about how her school was and how for from good it was. And again I would like to underline that: my girlfriend was a really good student, she was in the "top five" when graduating. Now she works for Montefiore, and really doesn't care about recent, future students of Concordia College anymore. But, when she was studying, and I was listening to here about all these stories, I told her that one day once she finishes, I will spread the word about it. So I am doing. You may not believe me now, but let me tell you this. Please save this webpage to "favorites" come back here, about a year from now, and then write some comments

    Study hard, yeah it's "only" 15 months, you can def make it. Try to make as many connections as possible, especially during the time you will be working in the hospitals, that may benefit for the future.

    Good luck, and see you around Aril 2013 !

    Well dr. martin, if I may add a different point of view.. my best graduated from the program in dec. 2011, she was hired by WP hospital recently and absolutely loved Concordia. She said it was of course challenging and I did not see a lot of her during those 15 months but she was so happy she chose that program. She had a great support system from her classmates and she genuinely liked the teachers. And at the end of it all, she is now a working nurse, which is the ultimate goal here for everyone. We were all selected because in our interview and from our class grades we have displayed our ability to handle the stress and challenge that we will face in the next year 1/2. Not everyone can handle it, but that's why there are many non-accelerated programs to choose from. As for the class of 2013, I think we will do great and will come out of the program stronger and well prepared.

    Silverdragon102, I do not believe anyone has attacked anyone else on this board. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Hey guys - I deleted my facebook account because it was too much of a time drain for me. I had forgotten about our little Concordia group though, which was great, and I'm going to miss being able to chat with you guys. It's really liberating not being on facebook anymore though...I highly recommend it! Anyway, please let me know on here if you decide to meet up before classes start!
