I love that this school has the accelerated bachelors in nursing program but it is definitely tough. From day 1, you hit the ground running and there is no time for slacking off! I do think it is worth the cost and hard work but you have to be prepared from the beginning. The staff is very helpful and they want you to succeed, which is always good. I would definitely choose SMU over other schools due to three things: reputation, class size, and high standard of education.
