Hello, I need your help and advice! I recently moved to Tampa, FL. I want to know more about these colleges (Hillsborough Community College, University of South Florida and University of Tampa) and what their nursing programs are like. I still have a year of pre-reqs left, so I would be a transfer student.

HCC would be the easiest option for me as it is close and affordable but I have heard (and read) not so great things about the college. I want to complete my prereqs and then apply to a BSN program, which is why I also want to know more about universities like USF and UT.  How hard is it to get into these programs (Do they have long wait lists)? Are they good programs or are there better options?

I would appreciate any help at all! If there are other community colleges or universities you could recommend please do. 😊

I have applied to HCC and the USF accelerated 2nd degree. All of the schools look at different things so if I were you I would apply to all and see who accepts you because it can be very hard to get in. With the HCC route, you can do a concurrent program with USF as long as you have a 3.0 gpa and you finish with a bachelors from USF but start off at HCC with about one or two classes a semester at USF. After about 2 years you finish up in 1 year at USF but they are all online so you can start your nursing career because you will have yourRN.
