Hi all,I just found out that I have been accepted to USM's Accelerated BSN program and I am hoping to find out more about the program to decide if that's definitely where I want to go! If you are in the program now, or if you went there, would you mind sharing a little about the program? Specifically, I'm interested in knowing:-How large is the accelerated class?-What is retention like? (do most people who start end up graduating?)-Is it overall a supportive environment?-Do you get enough clinical experience? What is the quality of clinical experience like?-Is the program well-respected in the area?-I have heard that some schools won't allow you to sit for the NCLEX if they don't think they are going to pass. Is this true? If so, does USM do this? I think I will do fine in school and am hoping it won't be a problem, but it seems like something I should be aware of.-finally...I am from California and have lived in Georgia for the past 5 years...am I going to freeze to death in Maine? :)And of course...anything else pertinent that I should consider. Thanks so much for your insights!
