    Do you guys know what facilites for clinicals? also have you guys taken health career core already?
    My friend went to Atlantic and did hospital rotation at west side regional hospital. And some nursing homes and kids psych hospital in Tamarac somewhere I believe.

    Ok I may be wrong about this but look into it. I had taken health career core as it was needed for Broward. I took it online thru sheridan, you only need to go in for CPR which i already had so did not need to go to the school. The cost was about $270. However those same classes with exception of CPR are offered thru ceufast.com for $30!!!! unlimited classes and exam. Thats one of the places mcfatter told me students use for their ceu's. I checked on here and people from broward take their classes thru them as well. Wish i had known this before.

    I wonder if I can skip core. I'm a cna, but my CPR is expired. I need to renew.

    I remember someone asking that question. If your license is in Fl, you would qualify for advanced standing; if its from another state she would have to look into it. Email her to make sure.

    Yeah it's in Florida. Email the counselor? I was thinking of puttinga copy of my cna license in the application packet, but didn't know if I was allowed.

    Since you have to drop off the packet she goes thru everything you have, so i would say yeah bring the original and a copy of it. Bring copies of your CPR card too. Are your Osha, HIV, and Domestic violence courses up to date? if they are not you can do that after you turn them in.

    No it's not up to date. I'll look into it though.

    Advanced placement isnt that much of a difference. You just start school 3 weeks later but ull still be with the same group alls it is is u skip the core class which is mostly online the first 3 weeks. And wow I wonder why they all do clinicals so far away from theit schools but I like west side its okay.

    Yeah. But 3 weeks is good enough for me. Plus I wouldn't have to pay (I believe) $270 for the core. More money I won't have to pay. Also the counselor says you can also skip an entire block if they feel you don't need it. (after they review college transcripts) I've taken

    Anatomy 1
    Anatomy 2
    Human growth and development
    Nutrition
    Sociology
    Psychology
    English comp
    Microbiology
    Speech
    Some math courses
    Medical terminology

    And I've been a cna for 10 years. (which doesnt matter but whatever) i'll just throw the license in the packet.

    And more I can't recall. Hopefully that will mean something. If not for the LPN at least it will matter for when I bridge. Did all that work for nothing? Better not! :lol:

    Well west side is right by my house. 2 mins. And mcfatter is not too far from me so I feel like its right in the middle. I live in plantation. I heard its a nice hospital. And the staff is nice. But it's a good ways from Atlantic. I wonder why they picked it. Maybe because they have a contract or something.

    I didn't show immunity for hep b. so I have to get shots in the morning. I guess I'll just turn in that I got my first dose and turn that in with my packet tomorrow. Hmmm..
