Hello from St. Pete, FL!

  1. Hello all,

    I've been using this message board for school and degree research for quite some time... I decided today is the day to register and say hello. Thank you and hello!

    I am a student at HCC in my prereqs to apply for the Radiation Therapy and ADN programs (2015) If I am only accepted to the RT program then that's that. However, I secretly think I want to be a nurse more. If I make it into the ADN program then I will more than likely roll into a bachelors at USF. My ultimate goal would be a masters. I am worried about a few things, though:

    Has anyone heard anything further on FL phasing out the ADN programs?

    My coworker who is finishing up her ADN at SPC says she hasn't heard anything good about the HCC program. Thoughts?

    Are there other respectable and accredited RN programs in the Tampa Bay Area? BSN or ADN?

    A bit about myself: I am 31, just moved in from out of state to achieve my RT degree at HCC. I like to cook, I'm a very amateur fisherperson (hehe), and I like to hang out on the beach when I can.

    A big thank you to you all for sharing your experiences and thoughts as it has helped me a great deal!! Good luck to you all in your education and career journeys.
