Seminole State College LPN to RN program

  1. Hello! Has anyone out there been through or going through Seminole State's LPN to RN transition program here in FL ? I just wanted to get an idea of the workload, instructors and how many days a week you are actually in class/clinicals. I'm going to an information session next month but was curious as to what to expect since I also have a family, full-time job, etc. Thanks for any input!

    A former classmate graduated from the program last year and I emailed her a similar question, per her response they were on-site 2-3 times a week including clinicals and labs. campus times were around 8-3. thats all the info I have hope it helps a little. Will also be applying summer 2014 God willing.

    I got my email today i am an alternate. I am quite surprised, i finished my pre reqs in 2010, had a 3.86 gpa, and scored an 83.3 on the TEAS. They said I needed to clarify my work experoence, i guess because i have been in management for the last 6 years. Im bummed! Hope i can get a spot anyway, maybe somebody will back out.

    I got my email as well and got in to start in May! I'm excited as well as feeling apprehensive about the busy year ahead since I'm trying to stay working full-time as well. Hopefully it won't be to bad since I work 3- 12 hour shifts a week. Congrats!!

    Congrats to all of you who were accepted. I am really curious to know if everyone that was accepted finished their pre reqs by spring of 2010. Im trying to figure out if i was put on the alternate list because of work experience, teas score, or if there was that many people who finished pre reqs before me. They college is not responding to my questions :-/

    Sorry to hear it. If they are asking you to verify your work experience, then maybe they are trying to figure out if you have bedside nursing experience. I know the RT's, Paramedics have to verify they are competent with bedside skills by having to fill out a separate packet and signed off by someone verifying they are competent with those skills. I finished micro in 2012 and that was my last prereq. That was required. I've taken a couple more classes since then that I know I will need for my bsn. I'm not sure what they look at exactly when considering candidates. It sounds like you had all your ducks in a row outside of your work experience. Good luck! Maybe you'll get a seat anyway!

    Thank you for the insight. I am so frustrated. They said at the info session that priority is given to those who finished pre reqs first with a high gpa. Well.....apparently not...sheesh.

    Yes, it seems a little misleading by them saying that. It's .more like they give those two things priority IF you meet the other requirements for admission. So sorry about your frustration. I can't imagine what your feeling. Well, at least you have an alternate spot. I have a friend who graduated from Valencia and they had 4 alternates when they started and they were all called for a spot because of people backing out at the last minute. So you never know.
