Hello there fellow Floridian,

Yes, I'm in nursing and I graduate May 11th. Thank God. I didn't have to pay anything out of pocket as their financial aid dept. is very good about getting you the scholarships and loans you need to cover everything. I actually had about 1500 left over every semester. And, if you want to work at baptist they will pay you 8000 bucks while you are in school as a scholarship for only a one year commitment. This is on top of your financial aid from school and can help you make ends meet. Many of my classmates took this route. If you could finish all the pre reqs you could also do the one or 1 1/2 year accelerated option. However, be warned that this is a brutal load. I chose the basic option and did my 4 1/2 years and it has worked out well. I just took a job in Broward county that starts in june at 19.40 hour base plus 3.20 night diff and another 3.00 weekend diff. So, it is worth it once you finish. Good luck! My email is [email protected].

Not to scare you, the 4 1/2 years is total school. i.e. 2 1/2 years at Broward CC and 2 years at Barry. I could have finished at Barry in 1 year if I had gone the accelerated route.

Secondly, if you want to go to Barry, email me and I will give you my full name and you will not have to pay the application fee and they might even refund the one you paid before! Ask for the alumni waiver!

Hi Steve B,

Is it possible for you to e-mail me @[email protected]. I really need to talk to you regarding Barry. I have a big dillemma on my hands now they just told me they are no longer accepting full credits from your LPN classes. Thus it will be a wasted year... Please e-mail me and I will give you my phone#. I know you are busy with Graduation and all, by the way congrats...
