  1. Hello everyone! I was just recently accepted into an 17 month ABSN program that will be starting in August. I have been looking for as much information as possible on ABSN programs to prepare myself, but I was wondering if anyone who has been through one has any recommendations or advice? What did you find helpful to avoid burnout during the program? What were some helpful resources that you used (including apps etc.)? I was also wondering, generally is an hour long commute with an ABSN program doable or would it be a bad idea? Any thoughts or recommendations would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.

    Agreed! I have a BS in Psychology, my pre-requisite GPA was a 4.0. I have worked various jobs in the human services field since graduation but am currently working in a psychiatric hospital where I work alongside nurses daily. As for biostatistics, I’m not sure about whether that would be accepted as the stats pre-requisite but there is an e-mail listed on the program website where you can ask. I used it myself and they responded within a day with the answer.

    I also applied to this cycle and am anxiously awaiting to hear back in March! I am surprised at how few people responded this year since there were so many people discussing this last year. I personally also do not have any nursing related experience, but I do have a lot of human services experience. I’m hoping for the best!
