USF Accelerated Program



I have a few questions about the Accelerated 2nd BS degree Nursing program at USF.

I will be transferring in with a BS in Biology and needing to take 5 pre-req's, 2 of which are the A & P sequence. I saw that this is offered on the web. Do you have to go to campus for any part of this course??

Also, how hard is it to get in. I will be transferring in with a 3.4 and I know I need to make A's in my 5 remaining pre-req's. Do you think that will be good enough or should I find some other course of study to become a nurse.

Any opinions on the program are appreciated!

i am taking the online microbiology lecture and lab at usf with the same instructor listed in coquito85's reply to my post. (see link below). i am following coquito85's advice and am doing fine. we do not have to go to campus. everything is online. my understanding is that his a & p classes are the same way. i will be taking a & p 2 next term with him.

also, here is a recent post regarding usf's accelerated program.

hope this helps.

Just to let you guys know, USF has suspended their summer accelerated BSN program due to budget cuts. They are only going to have the Fall program 1x a year. This is very disappointing as I have aMasters and live in Tampa area. There are no other colleges here that are offering this program.
