Well, I went to CFCC, and lets just say that my comments about it would be somewhat unfavorable.
I attended there for my LPN program, and it was quite difficult. I was told that in order to get into the RN Bridge, you must take at least 9 Pre-Req's and thats IF you do well on the CPT, and do not require any remedial classes. So if you take 4 classes at a full time rate, you could be done in a year, but its not recommended. Then when all of that is said and done, you must APPLY to take the HESSI. Yes, the Good Ole HESSI test...strong enough to kill ya! Then, considering you pass, and its very hard too, you will be allowed to apply. They take into consideration your Pre-req grades, your LPN grades, your CPT and the HESSI. Put it this way, I has a nervous breakdown at that college during my last semester of LPN school, requiring hospitalization. Some girls hair begin falling out, lots and lots of stress. :uhoh21:
There is a new school in Belleview, called Professional Health Training Academy. Its a pretty nice school from what their LPNs say. The RN program is to start this year sometime, and yes, it must go through the same accredidation process as did CFCC, but they have the Pre-reqs included.
Webster college also offers the RN program, but you must start from scratch...2 year program. And you have to take the HESSI.
Its up to you. Do your research. I did and I will be attending Galen College of Nursing in St. Pete. Yes, I will be commuting daily with 3 other nurses.
Good Luck to ya sweetie!
