Our program is only 15 mo. because all students are required to have a prior Bachelor's degree and were also required to complete all of our pre-reqs beforehand...(A&P 1 and 2, Chemistry, 2 semesters of psych, microbiology, statistics, etc) So in additon to my previous degree, I was taking classes for a year, completing pre-reqs, before the BSN program even started.
Yes, there is alot to learn, in all health-care professions!
Thank you, all, for your encouragement and positive ideas! I really appreciate it!
