    Ok! I just finished my second semester and it was a little challenged. Yes Leonardo you have to have $350 for ati's, which are test, books are depends buy them in amazon.com

    cpe0619 peds and OB are easy. It is the same book half is peds, half is OB.
    MED SUR is challenged but it is smooth, Amador was my professor for pharmacology and med sur1. And she is great.
    Now I am moving to my 3rd semester and will finish in December 2011.

    Amador is going to be med sur 2. We have psycho, and research I don't know who is going to be our professor

    Med sur 1 and 2 use the same book half and half too

    clinicals are getting harder and harder. And Oneida the director is not letting anyone to make changes and people are having a lot of difficulties with work and family.

    If you have any question let me know I am here to help

    hi everybody yes! I just finished the second semester and I am very happy, the last day final hands on: math calculation 20 questions, again head to toe assessment and 2 clinical stations.
    leonardoaguila yes for the 3rd semester we have to choose between clinical and family or work. everybody is mad with Oneida "the director", I think they are going to replace her because she is very unprofessional and she makes new rules every second. be careful with her. she likes when everybody is in panic and she loves to see students cry. and as you; everybody has to work, but she does not understand even she has other job in other hospital. people with kids she does not understand and from now on changes between students are not allowed it. when we started it everything was amazing because we help each other and she was not the director she was just a simple assistant, please get together with ur classmates since the first day of class and fight because you are paying a lot of money and every school in Miami has flexibility with clinical except Florida National College. and then they want us to do the bachelors there. let me tell you; no one in my class is going to do it there just for the reason of Oneida. I am sorry I don’t have a face book page cuz I am very busy

    RNstudentRS clinicals the first semester were really good you can change them, move to group to group. it was a lot of flexibility, the second semester Oneida the ex assistant and new director started changing everything around. the second semester people were imploring in their knees and she changed some people and no others depend of her mind. for the 3rd semester we are very scare she said no more changes; any day of the week at any hour is going to be a clinical. people with kids and jobs and other compromises are crying and suffering. but do not worry she is going to get fired very soon. as a told to the first blogger get together since the first day, find friends in class and send a letter to the school because we cannot tolerate this behavior for so irresponsible person as Oneida the director is.

    ok 1000 dollars for ATI books, drug test, cards for hospitals some , others u have to pay again but it is just 5 dollars, id's, chequeo medico, among others that i don't remeber, not u have to pay ur fisical examination.

    orientiencion is boring just the rules and regulations. they explain better what is the money for.

    Hello everyone,

    I'm starting the Nursing program at FNC and wanted a little info. I was in the Broward College Nursing program. Which was impossible to pass!!!!! Hopefully it goes better at FNC. I want to know how many times a week are the lectures and clinical days??? Also the books that they use the first semester. I know its fundamentals, but I wanted to know who the Author was. If someone can post the names of the books please. So I can start reading the chapters. I know how intense the program can be :0) Thank you

    HI everyone! so I was reading everyone posts because I was also curious about the school. I heard it's a good school. I am going today to turn in a copy of the TEAS test that I took at Keiser University. Is there a minimum score FNC requires.? I'm supposed to meet up with the dean to see if he will accept my scores ( I hope they do because I studied so hard for that test and I do not want to take it again... i got a 76%) I see theres a waiting list but I would love to be accepted for one of the upcoming classes. I did my AA at MDC and I am currently at UM dong my BA in biology. SO let's see what happens. good luck to all of you

    hi raquel6687

    how did it go w/t the school? also, did they accept the teas from keiser?
  13. by   raquel6687
    It went alright. Yes they did accept the TEAS from keiser. They told me that they will let me know ASAP if I got in or not ( i had an interview today) I'm kind of nervous because i do have 3 C's in the pre-reqs and I know they want students who have not taken any classes to stat first. It's very competitive, but let's see what will happen. Ill keep you updated
