I know there is another thread about online bridge programs, but there are 48 pages and I need specifically Florida programs because I have Bright Future's. If anyone could suggest some for me, that... Read More

    Florida Hospital College of Health Sceinces has a great ONLINE program with no onsite required. It is a part of the Seventh Day Adventist but they DO NOT force their beliefs on you in the program. You should check them out. They are in line with the other Florida institutions for in state tuition.

    but they are also private, and that is a lot more expensive.

    I just calculated the total amount that I paid for my BSN degree. and including all the fees and taxes it comes out to $5,600 and that's including what i have not paid for yet.

    If you compare cost with UF and FSU it is not that much different. FSU RN-BSN is currently suspended according to their own website. Heard a rumor TCC is going to offer their bridge and the others have much more clinical time involved.

    Well all I can say is email them or call them today

    Good Luck, I decide to apply to FIU and Kent State RN to BSN online programs
    Hi >30yrsRN!

    Wow, I am in the last semester at FIU and let me tell you, now is when I regret going to FIU

    There are 120hrs for practicum clinical and 60hrs for community health clinical. And of course you have to finish by the end of the term. And you have to find your own clinical site. They tell you to start looking within your own place of work.

    FIU does not give you a list of clinical sites affiliated with the school so literally I had to google search community health clinics and just call each place one by one and I was lucky enough that after the 70th call one took me as a student. I was about to cry just looking for a place to do these hours.

    Oh, and yes at FIU it is a couple of less classes to take than FAU because of those EC exams..... BUT... FAU gives you 20 credits JUST for being an RN. FIU gives you only 6 credits for being a nurse!! only 6!! because each EC exam is 8 credits, so 8x3=24 and since they give 30 credits for those, you get 6 free credits! and FAU gives you 20 credits!!!

    At FAU I heard that they give you a list of places and projects to do your clinicals at. For example, I know that as a group, the students went to tenesse to teach classes of health at a community center, and another one for practicum taught some diabetes class at a health fair. I think that is more appropriate for an RN-BSN student who is already a nurse.

    seriously FIU thinks that we have all this time to do these hours-- like we don't have full time jobs and families to deal with.

    Thank God I am in the end of it.

    I wish I would of known that clinicals were going to be like this, because if I had known that I had to do all these hours, and the incredible amount of driving I have to do, I would of just gone to FAU & I would of saved myself so many hours of my time.

    I give FIU 3stars out of 5.

    3 because I did enjoy the beginning portion of just online classes. I did also enjoy that I did not have to take more courses online and I can get credits by testing.
    but for the fact that there are so many hours to do, and that there is no list on facilities affiliated with the school.

    definitely I will not recommend this state school to anyone else who wants to do the RN-BSN program. I will recommend FAU based on the information I received from other people who attended there.

    I wish I would of known about this. I did a research and I could not find anyone's opinion regarding this program. I think I am the first one on here who posted anything about FIU.
    Oh well....
    fem, on eagles wings, and SeaH20RN like this.

    Oh by the way MDC's RN-BSN is similar to FIU's. I met a person doing that program, and they have to do onsite clinicals like FIU as well.

    so thumbs down for MDC too!

    FSU: http://learningforlife.fsu.edu/onlin...ms/Nursing.cfm

    FAU: http://nursing.fau.edu/index.php?main=3&nav=362

    FIU: http://cnhsonline.fiu.edu/

    I'm not sure how the clinicals work at FIU or FAU if you're not local to those schools, however FSU does state that you can attend the RN-BSN online program from anywhere in the state of Florida.

    I'm sure there could be more, but this is what I know of.
    FAU is a better choice.

    MDC & FIU you actually have to go every week so you can complete a certain amount of clinical hours for com. health & practicum.
    at FAU you don't have to do that.

    I work for Florida Hospital and they have an RN to BSN program. They will foot the bill if you sign a contract that you will work full time while in the program and two years after you finish. You have to pay back 21,000 if you break the contract. I am not willing to sign such a deal. I was hoping that they would just pay xxx amount of money each year for schooling.
    The cost per credit hour at this school is over $300.00 I believe. It is too expensive. This institution currently pays an additional 60 cents an hour if you have a BSN, hardly worth it IMO.

    I love school and learning but frankly I am so disatsifised with my job that i don't even know if nursing is in my future.

    I am disappointed with Florida Hospital and the way the nurses are treated, the patient ratio. It is unfair for the patients, unfair for the nurses and certainly unsafe for patients. It seems it is always about the budget not the patient at this hospital.

    Can't think of too many hospitals that aren't like this. It's just the way it is today.

    Hi! For FIU, does anyone know if you have to take intercultural communication before entering the program or can you take it during it? Thank you!

    Can anyone tell me how competitive the RN-BSN programs in florida are? My gpa from my previous bachelors in bio is 3.2 and my prereq gap is around 3.6. I am getting my ADN from a non accredited school so my grades wouldn't count. I am considering UCF, FAU, FIU, UWF right now.

    Does anyone have an idea of my chances at these?

    Or are there any other programs I should consider?
