Hi everyone. I'm looking for any insight that I can get about RN programs in south Florida. Particularly, in the Broward County area. Here's a little bit about my situation....
I currently live in West Palm Beach. I'm attending PBCC, completing pre-requisites for their nursing program. My husband recently got a job promotion in Pompano Beach so we will be relocating down that way in April. I'm trying to find out about RN programs closer to that area, rather than traveling to PBCC. I know about Broward College, but everything I have read on here about their RN program has been all negative...The most positive thing I've read about Broward College is that if you can make it through their program, where the instructors constantly treat you like crap, then you can make it anywhere as a nurse. I expect nursing school to be a challenge, and I'm more then ready to take it on, but I'd rather not attend a school that I'm going to be treated so poorly.
If anyone can give their thoughts on Broward College, or any surronding RN programs, I'd really appreciate it!
Also, what area's around Pompano Beach are nice to live in? My husband will be working off Federal Highway and Sample Road. We have a two-year-old and an eight-month-old, and we'd like to live some where fairly decent. We are moving from a not-so-nice neighborhood, and I would love to live somewhere that I would feel comfortable taking the kids outside to play, or to a nearby park. We don't know much about the area, but are thinking about checking out Pompano Beach, Deerfeild, Coral Springs and North Lauderale. We may buy, we may rent. Haven't totally decided yet. Any suggestions on where to look for a place, or specific neighborhoods would be great!
Thank you in advance!!!

If you live in Pompano, you'll attend North Campus, which is reportedly the best of BC. Also, PBCC on Glades is not too far from Pompano at all.
PBCC nursing program is only offered at the Belle Glade and Lake Worth campuses. I looked into it as an alternative to BC and assumed the Boca campus had the program as well, but it doesn't and I'm not willing into travel to either of those campuses.
