I am currently attending Miami-Dade College for my nursing pre-reqs and would like to apply to a few nursing programs after I graduate. My choices are:
Are any of these relatively hard to get into? Are there better schools in Florida that I should look at instead?
Also, what scholarships are out there, especially toward these schools? I've read a number of different scholarships, but I would really like to hear what others have found and gone through.
Lastly, I have read a bit about hospitals that pay for students tuition and books with the agreement of a few years of working under them. Do those still exist? Do any Florida hospitals do this?
Print and share with friends and family.

- Aug 23, '12 by Cold StethoscopeFIU's BSN program is hard to get into as a freshman. They have many hundreds of applicants for a hundred seats. You need very good grades and other distinguishing characteristics, such as activities/volunteer work/etc. in order to have a good chance of getting in.
On the other hand, it's not that hard to get into their RN-to-BSN bridge program, and you have the same BSN at the end as those who do the full four-year program have.
Why aren't you considering MDC for and ASN (followed by a BSN bridge there or elsewhere, if you like)? It's by far the cheapest way if you're paying out of pocket.
