    I re read my post and I see where you are coming from on that statement! I would not donate money to this particular nursing program, unless the money was going to make the changes that NEED to be made!! I would donate to the schools EMS education..as this is the same school I went to for that and had a great experience and recieved a great education!!

    In the State of Florida as well as in other states I suspect, a lot has to do with Politics. Nursing schools/programs are very political here in Florida with little common sense injected into the decision making such as the shortage. External Programs like Excelsior had to sue the state Board of Nursing to be accepted in Fl and the same will be true for other nontypical nursing programs. A person from the Fl board of nursing recently told me "That is the only way Indiana State's External degree program will ever be accepted" here in our state. They don't like competition here in Florida nor do they like any school where they have limited control over. They should all be fired with attitudes like this,,,,
