RN Evening Colleges

  1. 0
    Hello,


    I'm interested in becoming an RN but I'm looking for a College that will let me keep my job full-time. I know this is hard but this maybe my only way to do the program financially for me to keep my job.


    (I live in the Daytona Beach area)


    I have looked into Daytona State College - I know they have evening courses that start at 2pm three days a week - Has anyone done this program and can they tell me how it worked for you?


    I know that Seminole Community College has a Evening class but I'm not sure about the hours - Has anyone done this program?


    I was also looking into Keiser University RN program - I know Jax and Orlando would be closest for me - do they have Evening Courses and if so what were the hours? I know Keiser Is Pricey. I actually did my A.A. in Health Services Administration so I know from first hand


    I don't have the best credit to live off of loans, I don't ever qualify for financial aid b/c according to them I make to much (I wouldn't of ever thought, lol) I am single - not married and have no children so I really don't get alot of options there getting help with FAFSA.


    I currently work at a Medical Office doing Billing/Coding / Refferrals / Receptionist duties and I also have had past experience in Medical Records so my medical knowledge is well rounded with experience on the office side. I want to branch out to be a nurse and hopefully one day administrative nurse.


    I'm really looking for some advice! Thank you for all who comment!

    I worked as RN for many years in Orlando area and can tell you whenever I could hire a Seminole Co Comm College nurse I would jump at it.. They have an excellent program. I have heard wonderful things about the program and they must be true as the quality of ADN nurses is great.. I never knew they had an evening program but I know they are very helpful so call and ask to speak with someone or make an appt. Just as a side note: FL has many very good community colleges for Nursing and there 4 yr colleges are usually top rated... Now hospital and living/working there is debatable.

    NewGoalRN - I am moving to Tampa soon and found this information very helpful as a start, so thank you.
    I do have a question though - I did not see anything as far as deadlines for the application or when the classes start. I see above you mentioned is starts spring and fall, but I only saw that the evening/weekend program is in fall. Just wondering if you had any additional information.
    Thank you again!

    oh, and I saw they do not require a test to get in - like the HESI, TEAS, etc. Is this right? Basically the entrance is based off of GPA?

    this is an update from seminole state nursing advisor 2012, apparently they no longer offer a specific evening program, some classes are evening but its no garantee , daytona still has the 2pm program.
