For those looking into ADN Programs in the Tampa Area.


Hello! ? I am a Pre Req student right now and as such, I have been doing lots of research into ADN programs here in Tampa (I recently moved here). Once I complete my Pre Reqs I will be applying (or considering) to:

  1. Hillsborough Community College (HCC)
  2. St. Petersburg Community College (SPC)
  3. State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota (SCF)
  4. Galen College of Nursing
  5. Keiser University
  6. Rasmussen College

The reason I am posting this is because I made a table (of sorts) that includes all Pre-Requisites necessary for their Nursing Programs. There are two versions:

  1. This version checkmarks only the Pre-Requisites: Tampa ADN Program Pre Reqs ONLY.docx
  2. Here I included Pre-Requisites, and other symbols for General Education courses: Tampa ADN Program PreReqs + Gen Eds.docx (Checkmarks means they are pre-reqs, the thumbs ups are supporting courses and the atoms are science general eds.)

I did try to find the minimum TEAS score for all of them, if they have a "?" it means I did not find the required scores, or I don't know if the college requires TEAS.

In case the word documents don't work, here's a link to a Google Drive folder with the files and program outlines of the colleges (except keiser and SCF):

All information is from their websites, and while it is a little messy I thought this might help other students that are currently in the same boat. Of course, I would always speak to an advisor but I think this is a nice little table to help you know what each college is asking for. As students its our responsibility to know exactly which courses are necessary (to save both time and money); I find this even more necessary when dealing with Advisors that aren't that great. ?

I hope someone finds this helpful! Oh, and if the colors bother you, I believe you can download the docs and change it in Word. ?
