Nursing is a rapidly expanding, highly desirable area of the healthcare industry. During the past three decades, the number of employed nurses in the United States has increased more than 100 percent.

A Day in the Life: Accelerated Nursing Programs in NY or NJ

What’s it like to experience accelerated nursing programs in NY? That depends on what you mean by “accelerated.” Because fast-track nursing programs don’t look the same at every institution. In many cases, they’re designed for specific types of students.

Today’s different accelerated nursing programs can support:

  • Students who already hold bachelor’s degrees in other subjects, and who wish to earn BSNs—without retaking general education requirements.
  • Students who wish to combine bachelor’s and master’s level study—earning a BSN and an MSN in less time than it would take to do both separately.
  • Students who already have some healthcare credits or work experience (e.g. LPN, EMT, PA), and wish to earn their RN faster—through a credit-by-exam program.

For now, let’s focus on the last case. Let’s talk about some of the basic similarities that define credit-by-exam accelerated nursing programs in New York and throughout the U.S. By following a typical “day in the life” schedule, you can decide if studying for exams (versus entire college semesters) makes sense for you.
