    Kaplan ADN Program is considered a "pilot program." Their online is only offered if you're a resident in South Florida because you have to complete clinicals on weekends here, locally. The program is very well active. No it is not on their website (hence pilot program) If you call, ask to speak to someone from their Pembroke Pines or any Fort Lauderdale offices (Nursing dept of course).

    There is no waiting-list. However, they do review each applicants. There is no interview. They will just let you know if you're accepted or not. They only allow 20 full-time students per start. And yes course are online and practicum/clinical work is classroom settings.

    Hope this helps!

    I actually got into Kaplans program off the wait-list so there is one depending on how many students apply. Also, they say that the problem is for residents of So. Florida only. However, there is a student in my class that commutes from Orlando and another one from Tennessee. I started in Feb 2010 and currently in Med/Surg 1.

    Well I'm sure these students make big sacrifices especially coming from TN! Yikes! The waitlist may have changed because this information was told to me directly from the Asst Dean of Nursing - who knows now-a-days right...

    I know it is soooooooooooooo hard to get any information about this program! They make it nearly impossible to reach someone about it! Does anyone know when the next start date is?

    Next official start date is 9/22/10. But you would have had to submit all your paper by, today, I think. I would call any Kaplan office in Plantation FL or Pembroke Pines FL.

    Hi I've just started at Kaplan nursing. They didn't inform us on where we would be placed for the clinicals. I live in South Florida of course and was told the clinical sites are between Miami, Broward county and Palm Beach county. What hospitals are the students place students for the clinicals?

    As far as I've been told, they will only say they will be in Broward, Miami-Dade, or Palm counties. Not sure which specific hospitals. Do you know when the next start date is?

    I'm currently enrolled in the program, and the only hospitals I've seen them use for clinical sites are West Boca Medical Center and Wellington.
