    Miami Dade College offers an RN-BSN program but it is not online

    Broward College will have an RN-BSN program soon but it is not offered yet.

    Keiser Univesity has an RN-BSN too....

    but why consider former community colleges such as miami dade, when you could easily go to a state university?

    USF in Tampa and FGCU in Ft Myers both have online RN-BSN, RN-MSN with the bridge option and BSN-MSN, I'm looking at USF most likely.
    FGCU will no longer be offering the bridge program

    I had heard they had some issues with people completing the bridge and being successful with the NP portion and becoming licensed vs. the MSN-NP track, maybe the bridge was more hassle than it was worth for them. I know my ex-sil dropped out of the RN-MSN bridge twice for ridiculous reasons. Maybe that's why my former program directed tried to steer us all towards anyone other than FGCU?

    Florida Hospital College's RN to BSN is totally online- you don't ever have to visit Orlando (unless you want to visit Mickey, of coarse! ):

    Is UCF online hard to get into?
    I spoke to a admission Nursing Person
    she asked me why don't you go to some place closer to where you live
    Like I was a big brother to her and I got the same response from FSU!
    I think I will try USF online and RN to MSN or RN to PHD!
    I like the FIU program where you take the EC Exams and challenge three of them and get your BSN with all the Prereqs completed of course.

    I also did two RN courses with UOP class room setting It was to expenses and I did not like the commute at all

    I am looking into Western Governors University Program
    It a toss up between them and UCF and USF. The FIU looks good but to far for me to travel once a month. I know USF has there act together with all MSN programs and UCF also.
