    Hmmmmm. Are you looking into an ASN or BSN?

    There's a lot of nursing schools in Orlando.

    The florida hospital school is a private school so it could get pricey.

    There's Valencia college, they have an associates program but a long wait list to get in.

    There's the university of central Florida (ucf) which has an excellent NCLEX pass rate and they offer three programs: basic, accelerated and concurrent. Basic is for your first bachelors degree. Accelerated is for those that have a non nursing bachelors degree. And concurrent is where you can go to a community college and ucf at the same time to earn both ASN and bsn. I know so much about this program since I'm applying there for the fall. It's extremely competitive; you have to have a high gpa, teas score and do well at an interview.

    There's keiser university, also a private school. It's a career college so it's a fast pace. Their credits do not transfer though which can be a burden if you want to go to grad school.

    There's also Seminole state college, they aren't in Orlando but northeast in altamonte springs. They offer ASN.

    I might have forgotten some but there's a few to get you started.

    Seminole State College is actually going to a BSN in only program beginning Spring '14. However, right now the majority of their students accepted into the nursing program are concurrent students. This means the complete an ADN degree while concurrently attending UCF (UCF courses are online) and completing a BSN. The program is accelerated and is completed in a little over 2 years. Although UCF has a great NCLEX pass rate, SSC actually just turned out the best scores in the state with their recent graduates attaining a 100% pass rate!!!!

    Does anyone have any personal experience with Breckinridge School of Nursing @ITT in Lake Mary. They have an ASN. Where do they do their clinicals? I was told that all of the the latest class passed the NCLEX and that they were all able to find jobs.

    I went to Seminole State College Nursing Program. It is less expensive than UCF and they offer a concurrent program with UCF. Basically you get your RN and take upper level BSN courses through UCF at the same time.

    The campus is in Altamonte. We have a 100% NCLEX pass rate for my class and the class before us

    I have a question.... Just wanted to know everyone's opinion ... I am applying for FSU BSN nursing program for fall 2013 as an out of state transfer student . My current GPA is 3.71 and my pre reqs is a 4.0 ... I realized the FSU BSN application is very basic which usually means its harder to get accepted ...I've Also read that before taking transfer students prior FSU students get priority even though the school denies it... I'm just extra nervous and even if I get excepted I still hAve two more classes I need and will finish before the semester starts... What is your opinion on my chances?? ... Any response is appreciated and helps .. Thank u

    TammyGM:

    Do not go to ITT...no one will accept the credits so you will not be able to obtain a BSN
