HI everybody, I would like to ask anyone who has knowledge on this subject to give me some imput- I am graduating from High School this year and want to get my BSN. I have been accepted into Pensacola Christian for the fall semester but am getting cold feet. I'm just not sure if that environment is well suited for me and my family. I have read bad things about PJC so i'm not looking into them but am quite interested in University of West Florida. I am looking for information about the quality of their program. I know PCC's program is good but as I said, just not sure about it. Any imput is much appreciated! Thank you so much.

I don't know anything about those schools
. However, you may want to check the school's NCLEX success rates on the Florida Board of Nursing website. The NCLEX is the exam that you must pass to get you license. I don't know the website off the top of my head, but you can google it.

I graduated from PJC and it is what I would call a "self taught nursing school
". UWF has a great program and so does PCC. If you have already been accepted to the PCC program I would go for it. I think it has the best NCLEX pass rate of all of the schools
in this area and the students that I have worked with that have graduated from their seem to know their stuff............You have to make the decision however, good luck with which ever road you decide to take.
