    xmadmoizellex- I would contact the advisor's office and the admissions office to check on the status of your admission to USF. If you can, show up at the admissions office and see a transfer advisor. Unfortunately, the nursing advisor's will not meet with you until you are already accepted. (that's why you should see the transfer advisor first) My application took about 4 weeks to be approved because of a hang up with my military credits. However, it was resolved by me going to campus to talk to a transfer advisor.

    Hopefully, you hear something soon! Good Luck!

    Yes [COLOR=#003366]xmadmoizellex[/COLOR], the scrubs are seriously overpriced (they are a thin, flimsy material if you ask me), but welcome to college life! Everything is overpriced. It's too bad they don't just tell us to go buy scrubs from wherever, then have a USF patch attached. They do that for the dress code for community and psych, why not scrubs?

    The people in charge of the nursing program really seem to get it, though. While we have a lot of up-front costs (I just spent $300 on titers and immunizations, and there's more to go...) they say we'll reuse several of our textbooks, and there won't be new software every semester, or new lab kits every semester, so that helps me with the sticker shock. They also offer book rentals at 50% of the cost of a new book, but you have to make sure you're not renting a book you'll use next semester.

    I love USF so far, even though my classes haven't started yet. Orientation was awesome. Can't wait to get started!!!!

    Hi guys,
    I am currently a student at SPC and I am applying to USF's nursing program as well. I'm hoping for the accelerated program but I'm going to apply to both just in case! For those asking about how long it took to hear from USF about general admission to the university, I heard back from them in a week! I'm assuming it would depend on if you submitted everything accurately and they received all of your records but it was a pretty easy process! Plus you can check admission status on myUSF.

    Thank you for the advice! I'm going to call them first thing Monday because I don't live in that area.

    I currently attend USF, and I really really want to stay her, so hopefully I get into the fall 2013 upper division program! I did get into FGCU's nursing program for the fall 2013 though, so at least I have that. But my first choice is USF! goodluck to everyone!

    Hello All,
    Im a pre Nursing student at HCC that just completed all my pre-reqs and applied for the Spring 2014 entree Class. Im also considering the USF program but have a question that im hoping someone on this post can help answer for me. Does the USF Nursing program provide evening classes for someone like me that works a 9 to 5? Or are they strictly a daytime program? I really would prefer to go directly into the BSN program at USF if they have an evening program. If not i will just complete me ADN @ HCC the do the ADN to BSN bridge program at USF online.

    fxcolon- USF does not offer an evening program. All of our classes and clinicals are during the day. Even HCC might have a hard time accommodating a 9-5 job. One of my friends attended the SPC evening program and classes started around 1 or 2pm. So hopefully your job is flexible with you.

    Good luck to you on starting nursing school! If you have the opportunity to go to USF, give it some thought! USF is an outstanding nursing school. I wouldn't trade my experience there for anything!

    Okay now the process begins..I have to write the essay and then submit the application to await. Not to mention my pre req gpa is higher than my overall one. I'm not gonna lie money and car issues can be a problem for this program but I'm hoping it'll all work out in the end. Where's my USF applicants of 2013 at?? Lets do this!!
