    I'm not sure about Tampa, but the Florida Board of Nursing website has a list of accredited programs (ADN and PN). Check out:

    You can also see the passing rates for the schools (2003 and 2004) at:

    This is a helpful document. I have found some of those places, but most I have not heard of. Thank you very much!

    The local LPN program is at Erwin Technical School www.erwintech.edu. There's a waiting list to get in, about a year, but it's very economical. There's a private program in St. Petersburg at a school called Galen. It's about $15,000. Also in St. Petersburg is Pinellas Technical School. They have a LPN program.

    Thank you everyone for this very helpful information. Galen is very pricey. I was looking into Erwin. Does anyone attend this program. I'd like to hear some feedback, good or bad.

    A little more south is Manatee Technical Institute (Bradenton) & Sarasota County Technical Institute. I've known nurses & former classmates who drove across the Skyway Bridge from St. Pete & Clearwater to attend these programs.
    Manatee Tech is east of I-75 off of US HWY 64 I believe, have friend going there now & 2 colleagues graduated there last year.
    I graduated from Sarasota County program 07/2005, did not know about the Manatee program at the time.
    I think as long as you get all applications, transcripts, physical, etc in before end of March- you could attend August/Fall session.
    One caveat- Sarasota does clinicals down at Venice Regional or did when I was in school, a 45 minute drive from my house at exit 224 Ellenton Outlet mall & I can SEE the interstate from my neighborhood.

    This is great. I looked into Manatee a little bit. Part of the problem is that I am not exactly sure where we are going to live. My husband is in Tampa now and I will be going for a week in April. But we won't move down until May or so. Thanks again for this great info. I am learning where the highways are, so having some direction as where to go definitely gives me an idea where things are.
