    I chose Wolford College largely based on co-worker and friends recommendations. All of them stated how great their experience was and that they felt extremely prepared for independent practice upon completion. Also, all of them have been in the same family situation as I (married with 2-4 children). Naples is a very nice, family friendly place to live.

    Thanks Oscar!

    If admitted for fall 2013 I'll be starting with a 14 month-old and a very supportive husband! : )

    Good for you! I admire anyone who takes on a challenging program, but I especially admire moms who do it. That would be tough...I would not be able to do anything without my precious wife's support.

    I just found this blog! I have an interview next week on the 15th and I am very excited but nervous too! I have heard that most people who get an interview get in. Is that true? How long after the interview did you have to wait to get your acceptance letter?

    GinnyG-RN:
    Yes, it seems that most people who qualify and are invited to interview gain acceptance. I interviewed and received an acceptance letter 2 weeks later. Good luck!

    Has anyone found any solid places to live? I have been looking in Naples, Bonita Springs, and Fort Meyers...Kinda feel like Fort Meyers is a long hall and don't know much about Bonita Springs as far as rentals go? Just trying to find a family friendly community that possibly has a park or something i can take the wife and kiddo out on. thoughts?

    When I go down there this week I will be looking at multiple apartments and will let y'all know which ones are the best. Have you already looked at any apartments in person? My friend who is in school lives at belvedere at quail run apartments. They are on a golf course and newly renovated. They seem very nice.

    with the finger prints you need two sets...one for morphotrust (they process them for Wolford) and you need a set sent to the florida board of nursing. you can go to local sheriff or police and get the blue standard FBI prints. you will need to hand write an ORI number into each set of prints which is how they link your ORI number to the school. morphotrust you pay online florida board of nursing is through biomedical firm that also processes them for florida board. clear as mud right?! took me 3 weeks of phone calls and trying to get hold of wolford, florida board, and morphotrust...prob on hold for total of 8hrs over those 3 wks.

    see below email from wolford about this...might help a little.

    You will need to be fingerprinted twice. Once for the Wolford College background check and also for the Florida Board of Nursing (FBON).You are to get fingerprinted by your local law enforcement agency. We do not provide the fingerprint cards. Then you will need to forward the card to the L-1 Company in Tallahassee, FL, making sure our ORI number is on the card in order for me to get the results. You will also need to get fingerprinted for the FBON when you apply for your FL RN license. You will need to follow their instructions and get fingerprinted for them also. You will need to find a company to process them. There is a company on the FBON website that will process the cards and get them the results. Below is the company that will process the fingerprint cards for the Florida Board of Nursing license. You can have your fingerprints done on the fingerprint card and make sure the FBON ORI number is on the card in order for them to receive the results and this company will convert the card to livescan. Please contact them for information on how to accomplish that and the actual cost before you forward your cards. The lady that I spoke to was Sue Powers. Please contact me if you have any questions.



    Biometric Information Management (B.I.M.)....................use this company for the florida board of nursing. they want a $50 money order to be sent with your prints to the below address. don't forget the ORI number!!

    Phone: 614-791-3220
    Email: FLfingerprints@bioinfomgt.com
    Website: www.bioinfomgt.com
    Location: 555 Metro Place, Suite 100, Dublin, OH 43017
    Fees: Fingerprint card scanned at location - $59.25 (Contact before sending)





    sounds straight forward but they fail to tell you these companies are horrible to work with!

    toss me an email and i will give you all you need to know and save you the hassel of all this silliness
    Hey Denver, I sent you a private message concerning the licensing process...

    GInny: I looked at apartments for about a half a day but it was rather overwhelming...make sure you use the net first to narrow down where you think you would like to live.

    Ginny/Birddog: as far as interview goes, show up and you should get accepted interview with three peeps. They will ask you about your experience, how you financially plan to pay for school, what kind of O.R. cases you seen when shadowing? interview is about 7-10 minutes is all. No technical questions or anything crazy. Just personal, so relax, get some sleep, go to the beach...ye get the jest

    have fun!
