Business transition into Nursing
- 0Feb 28, '13 by GRomeroRN2bHello Everyone,
I currently hold a Bachelor's in Business and have no experience in the medical field, so please bear with me... I've been out of school for almost 8 yrs . This is something I always wanted to do but the resources were never there.
I currently live in Orlando and I heard that Seminole College has a great nursing program that is also concurrent with UCF and Valencia community college as well. Is there any advice that you guys/gals can give me as far as where to start? Are these programs flexible? Does any school offer part-time RN degrees? Any advise would help.
Thanks in advance!

"RN" means "Registered Nurse", which is a professional license that is obtained by those who pass a board exam. If you want to pursue a degree part-time, I would look into on-line programs, as far as academic classwork. However, once you are doing clinical rotations, your schedule will be determined by the program. Be sure the program you select is accredited by the ANA.

You should go to their websites to get more info. Or you can go to the information sessions the have which help a lot to answer any question you have.
- 0Mar 1, '13 by CP2013The PP is correct......Valencia has a waiting list, UCF is closed for this year. Seminole you can go speak with them I believe the deadline is sometime in March. They do two enrollments/year. You MUST attend an info session to get the information on the applications and the process.
