You will be in classes Monday through Friday from approximately 8:00am to 5:00pm. * There may be a few classes that go until 8pm. If you are not in class then you will be in clinical. Clinical maybe Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and/or even Saturdays (am and pm). These clinical times could be day or evening but will learn more towards evening hours. Each clinical course (all courses being 6 credits) has a clinical day attached. Students do not receive their schedule until 6 weeks before they begin the program. Drexel University is on the quarter system. Clinical sites are located in the City of Philadelphia, surrounding suburbs, and in the states of New Jersey and Delaware. It is recommended that students have a car. The clinical sites are assigned to you by a clinical placement team so that you receive a diverse nursing education.
Hope this helps!

i have also been accepted into the ACE program beginning in Spring 2012. Not sure of the exact date it starts though, does anyone know for sure?
Very nervous about it. Hoping it will be okay to live off campus about 1/2 hour away in Willingboro New Jersey. Hope I can handle the intensity of it all. I have a bachelor's in communications and was working as a network engineer for 10 years before i lost my job and decided to make a career change.
Here's wishing everyone the best of luck and hoping to meet all you in semester 1.....!!!!
