    Hi everyone. I'm a current student so hopefully I can help answer some of your questions...

    Unless you already have a prior Bachelor's degree, you won't be eligible for the accelerated program. That may be why some of you didn't get the email.

    The entire nursing curriculum at the school is being overhauled, including the accelerated program. Up until now, accelerated students took the exact same courses, only they had one of their semesters smashed into the summer so that they finished a semester earlier than the other people they started out with. They are changing it so that accelerated students are in an entirely different program all together. It should be an improvement. I am not sure if they are keeping the accelerated program that starts in January or not. I would call and ask them what the plan is, and how many months it would take to complete the new program that starts in May (assuming it is approved).

    I'm looking forward to seeing ALL of you guys at orientation!

    Ahhhh!! How exciting!! If you live in San Antonio it should only be 1 day turn-around-time. So tomorrow!! If you live outside San Antonio, in Texas, I would guess 1-3 days max. Good luck everyone!! I'm sure this thread is going to explode tomorrow as everyone checks their mail
