Description 

As one of the first books examining the core issues of accelerated nursing education, this one offers valuable information on the challenges and successes of this educational model."--Doody's Medical Reviews

Accelerated degree programs provide evidence that creativity in nursing program design can facilitate learning experiences that assure competence in the profession while also taking advantage of the knowledge, skills, and experiences the learner brings to our profession. Lessons learned from accelerated nursing programs can be applied in all our programs and enrich the education of professional nursesÖ"

Geraldine Polly Bednash, PhD, RN, FAAN
CEO, AACN
