Yes, ExpatHopeful is right, you end up taking all the same classes as the accelerated students. I'm currently in the program and starting my clinicals in the Fall. I transferred as a traditional student and after finishing my prerequisites at NYU I choose the accelerated route.
My Fall semester class schedule has 5 classes: Integrative Seminar, Health Assessment and Promotion, Adult & Elderly I, Professional Nursing and Pathophysiology. I'm sure this is plenty to keep us busy!!
So far I took all my liberal arts and pre-reqs at NYU and I love the environment. I have heard many good things and bad things (overcrowded lectures) about their nursing program but I didn't care. This is the school I was aiming for and I'm just so happy I got in! It is definitely a financial sacrifice, because by the time I will be done I will owe a lot of money but I have faith in finding a job....hopefully! During my core and liberal arts classes I had lectures with over 100 students and that didn't really bother me. If you're focused and really want to learn, nothing will stop you. Plus the professors do a great job in keeping everyone interested and somewhat involved in class participation. It's all up to you and what you will make out of it!
Good luck and feel free to ask anything.
