    Hi all. I'm planning on applying for Spring 2018 with 76 points to the Charlotte campus. I haven't decided whether I'll try for the traditional or anew schedule... Does anyone know whether they offer the anew schedule at Charlotte?
    Hey there!

    Its finally nice to see someone applying to the Charlotte campus as the first choice. I am applying to the ANEW schedule. I spoke to the program director and asked her whether they plan to have an ANEW class based out of the Charlotte campus. She told me that they need a minimum of 12 qualifying applicants for Charlotte in order to have a class based out of that campus. Last semester they only had 8 applicants that were competitive enough so they didn't have a class. PLEASE APPLY TO THE CHARLOTTE ANEW. I really want there to be a class based out of that campus. When you think about it, it's a lesser competitive campus and schedule so the chances of being accepted are much higher

    Seeing that the hurricane is tracking straight towards my house which sits on the Charlotte harbor in a 6-10 ft surge zone, all of these plans to start the program are tentative right now...

    My wife, newborn daughter (born Sept 1), and I decided to take a trip to Alabama to get out of it's way. Praying that Irma heads west pronto!

    Hope you guys are in a safe spot...

    Weiny4089, I most likely will apply for Port Charlotte ANEW schedule. At the moment, it looks like that will work best for my family. My only reservation is clinical locations. I would be driving from LaBelle and while PC campus is about the same drive for me as Lee I'm not sure about the clinical locations so that's one thing I need to inquire about.
    Hope you did not have any damage to your home. We saw quite a bit of damage in my area but I know others had it much worse. I got power back today and cell service seems to be getting better. Slowly things are going back to normal.

    It seems FSW may have postponed the application start date due to being closed for Hurricane Irma. Good luck to everyone applying.

    Nice to meet you Camerella,

    Those are some solid scores. You are a very competitive applicant for sure. Are you applying to any other campuses besides Lee?
    Nice to meet you as well weiny. I am applying to Lee as my first choice, Collier as my second, and Charlotte as my third. Really hoping I get Lee though since it is right down the street from my house. A little anxious since the application isn't open yet due to the hurricane. Hope everyone made it safe!

    Thanks for your concern! Thankfully we only had minor damage to our roof but no flooding. Yes, it seems like all of you further south of me in the Fort. Myers area got it much worse. I hope everyone is OK!

    Glad to hear that you are considering applying to the Port Charlotte ANEW. I know what you mean about the clinical locations. I'm not sure how we would find out the clinical locations at this point.

    Yes, I noticed that the online application isn't posted yet. I'm sure it will go up when the school official reopens from the storm closure. I'm anxious to get my application in!! LOL

    I'm just curious, has anyone spoken to any of the nursing staff about when the application will be available? I assume maybe tomorrow (Wednesday) since that's when classes are supposed to start back up again...

    I was assuming the same, that it will be open tomorrow...

    I'm glad you pointed that out!

    I just called one of the directors and she said that there should be an application for the ANEW schedule option as well. So she said to not fill out the traditional application and wait until the ANEW application is posted before you apply. She took my number down and I think she's going to call me when its available.

    Thanks for checking into that! I almost had the app filled out when I noticed. I'll keep checking back as well and let you know when the ANEW schedule is available.
