You found the magnitude of the information to be too much but then you're hoping that the cnl program will be more manageable? If you do get accepted, I imagine it will be tougher. Im in the bsn, but i know many in the cnl. I considered it myself, but for reason that are not pertinent here, I decided against it.
Just know that in the cnl program you need at least a B in all the classes to pass. There is a lot of research, writing and critical thinking required. I know more than a handful that have been held back a semester d/c them not getting a B in patho, adult health, etc.
Why dont u just switch to the traditional program at hcc?
