I am also in my last semester of my program. We started with 83 people in the very beginning, went down to 40 by third semester. Now there is 30 or so who remain from the original class. I see it as bitter sweet, yes scary to lose that many peers... But confident that if I've made it this far there is nothing keeping me from the end.
I have my first clinical in ICU this morning.... I'm not scared that "I won't know anything" because that's why I'm there, to learn something new. However, if it were my third rotation on the sane floor, yes, I would assume that the nurses on the floor would hold me to higher standards than just linen changes
You should do fine if you're in the home stretch. Chill out and enjoy the ride
dude, nurses here only get started at 21/hour. You're doing better than our cna's who only rake in 13 avg....
im 26 and have a 3 year old son as well. fortunately i am in my final semester of my AS program, and yes the past 3 years have been hell with courts and school... Only God dragged me through that trench, but I'm almost out! I realized when he was born that i needed something stable because my decade of restaurant BS wasn't going to cut it... you can find an accelerated program like you said, and once you're done you'll have more options.
Thats what im holding on to for now... I don't want to just stay with my AS RN, but for now I have to start putting bread on the table.
~ I always wonder how different it would have been to start this process before i had my kiddo... but then i realize i probably would have never gotten my sh*t together if it weren't for him...
hang in there and follow your gut.
yea you might wanna chill out on the text-sarcasm. . . you're terrible at it.
the pass rates of FHCHS is hanging at 85%, whereas SCC (seminole community college) and VCC (valencia) are at 94 (v) and 98 (s).
If I could go back 2 years and save myself the headache, I would choose SCC. They have the absolute knowledge based program. Their students are pushed effectively enough to be challenged, yet understand the information in a consistent build-upon manner. - FHCHS has become the worst program around. 90% of everything is self-taught via online pre-recorded lectures, and excessive reading from 1 book which they never test on. There is no pharmacology class in the ASN program, and that is expected to be self taught as well. It is intense only because of the way it's set up. Thats why our passing rate sucks compared to other schools... we are paying for a private school level of education, yet receiving a crappy online-classroom type situation.
I dont mean to burst your bubble. It is a beautiful campus, and being connected to the hospital via shared parking, one would think that upon completion of the program that a job with said hospital would be waiting.... NOT THE CASE. The college is no longer associated with the hospital in such a manner. Not the same company, even though it sports the name "Florida Hospital College". There have been 4.0 GPA grads who have had to wait 6 months before getting a job offer, and many of those times, it is not even florida hospital who hires them.
Please save your money, go to SCC and get a much better nursing school experience. - if you are SDA and like the college because of that, then that is the only thing that makes it stand apart from cheaper and better educations at other colleges down the road.
Please, Do not attend this colleges nursing program. Florida Hospital College of Health Science has a 24% graduation rate according to fafsa.gov.edu. While your applying for financial aid, you will see for yourself that 70% of the students transfer out of this college and its programs. I am a 3rd semester nursing student and have had to take classes over because the college determines if you are ready to go on to the next semester not your grades. If your not seven day adventist, your in for hell at this college. I had 82 students in my first semester and at the end of the semester 55 were left. At the end of second semester 38 were left. THERE ARE 5 semesters and the college profited from all those students who transfer out. They are NOT AFFILIATED WITH FLORIDA HOSPITAL and THEY WILL NOT GET YOU A JOB WHEN YOU GRADUATE! I know people who have graduated the program and did not get a job until 6 months after there NCLEX and are working at other hospitals in Orlando. I am in this colleges nursing program and do not want other students to suffer the way I did. Go to UCF or another college with a nursing program because you need to maintain an 82 or higher throughout the entire program or your out! Good luck and you have been informed truthfully.
