    Does anyone know if the hospitals in the Tampa Bay area are hiring RN's? Hiring new grad RN's? I am graduating in July and am thinking about moving to the St. Pete's/ Palmetto/ Bradenton/ Tampa area -- is there a hiring freeze or are Hospitals hiring?

    Thank you so much for any help or any opinions on living in this area or good areas to live that are reasonably priced (houses for 150-200K).

    Thanks!

    I am interested in this too. I am thinking of moving to the Bradenton/ Palmetto area. Are hospitals hiring new grads around there? I'm graduating in July. Thanks.

    Does anyone have an idea if HCA pays a competitive salary at Hospitals such as Aventura Hospital vs. other South Florida hospitals such as Memorial, Jackson, etc? Do they pay about the same to recent grads, or less, or more? Thanks for any input.

    Is the 3.6 cut off for MDC for regular or accelerated? Hmm.... that is tough. I am hoping to get in to MDC or FAU accelerated for 2010 - does anyone know which is typically "easier" to get into?

    Did anyone who applied to accelerated FAU, UM or MDC test - CLEP - out of anything such as Psychology or Chemistry, for example, for pre-requisites? Meredith Brooks at FAU suggested it, but I don't want it to reduce my chances of getting in to any of these pages by not getting a grade in the class and just testing out. If I was to CLEP out of Chemistry I wonder if I can also CLEP out of Chemistry Lab?

    MagnesiuM - I am considering the accelerated MDC program for next year. Are your classes in the main MDC building right near Jackson? And which hospitals have you been working at? I am just thinking of commuting issues, since I live in Hollywood. Thanks.

    Congrats Chauncy24! I would like to go to the FAU accelerated program next year, so hopefully at this time a year from now I'll get that same e-mail. The FAU nursing facility is beautiful and I have heard good things about the program. Please do share your GPA, Hesi score, etc.

    I just recently decided to go back to school for nursing after being in the workplace (non-medical) for many years. I am looking for accelerated programs north, south or in Broward. So far I have found the following 4 options: Miami Dade College, U of Miami, Barry and FAU for accelerated programs that would start in 2010. I am going to start my pre-requesits at BCC and PBCC. I would like to do accelarated because I can only take one year off work max.

    My questions are -- do any of the scholarships where you agree to work for a hospital after or student loans cover any of you living expenses while in school, or just tuition? I don't mind going in to debt, but I'm going to have to figure out where my living expenses will come from during that time. I have read the websites of all of the programs inside and out -- did most of you sit down with someone at the schools as well and talk to them to make sure you were taking the correct pre-requisites etc? I've left messages with a couple of the programs and I haven't gotten much response. And does anyone recommend any other accelerated programs in the Miami to Palm Beach area?

    I'm currently leaning towards FAU - which of the 4 I mentioned above would be considered the hardest to get in to? Does name really matter when pursuing a nursing career? Thank you for any help you could give!
