Thanks for the quick response! That's good to hear. I wonder if there is a wait to get in?
What part of South Carolina are you in? I grew up in the Charleston area?
We are in Sumter, I don't think it's the best place in the world but, it could be much worse. And I didn't have to wait at all to get into the ADN program
so, that's a plus all by itself. I miss the night life of South Florida and the shopping, not to mention the beach, my friends...:icon_roll Oh how I miss sunny so.fla...How did you hold up through the hurricane. My sister still doesn't have power!
Back to the school issue, I am sure there is an admissions procedure for Nova. I don't think they accept just anyone who wants in. Same thing with Barry. There are lots of schools down there to choose from. FAU, FIU, UM (I think UM is more $ than Nova but you probably get to do your clinicals at Jackson Memorial) BCC, MDCC, PBCC. I'd look around. If you are just starting out, I'd go with what Momto3 said about going to a community college first. Having an AS might give you the upperhand into a private 4 yr univ. Just find out what's required for the program first. My friend (whose name is also Cindy :chuckle ) had a BS in Biology from UM and still had to take a few extra classes at BCC. Lame classes like computers and speech. That will definately lessen the blow financially.
Good luck and keep us updated.
