  1. Hello, I'm looking for info on Florida Academy of Nursing in Miramar. I haven't seen many reviews on here. Please let me know if you have attended this school or know anyone who has attended. Would you recommend this school? What clinical sites do they attend? What are the pre reqs etc. Most importantly were you able to pass the Nclex and have you found a job as an RN after graduating from here? Any feedback helps thank you :)!

    Hey Melissa, I am also an alternate and have my orientation on July 1 at 1pm. I personally suggest you go to orientation and wait and see if we are accepted. There is a good chance we will be but who knows. It's only two weeks away. Once we know if we are accepted on the day of orientation then if for whatever reason we are not accepted then start looking at technical schools/ private schools. I'm sure by the day of orientation we should have an answer if we are in or not. Another suggestion I have which I'm also going to do myself if we don't get accepted on the day of orientation... I say go straight to an RN program at a technical school or private school. DO NOT waste your money taking out loans just to do an LPN program and then have to do the RN it doesn't make sense. In the same 12 months or 16 months you can finish your RN program at Keiser or Concorde or some other private/ technical school. Why waste more time and money? Just go ahead and use that time and money you are investing in doing your LPN to do your RN schooling at one of those schools. You will regret it later on and say why didn't I just do my RN. Trust me I as well would love to get accepted into Broward's RN program and have all of us alternates get a seat but if it doesn't work out we can't cry over spilled milk. We have to keep moving forward. Just don't waste time. I regret when I went to Keiser and wasted 10 months doing their Registered Medical Assisting program. It was a great experience and I worked as a medical assistant for three years, but if I would've just done my RN at Keiser I would be a registered nurse years ago. So just really think about what you are going to do. This is your life and unfortunately we don't live forever so do what makes you happy and don't let anything detour you. I am a single mother of two kids one is 5 the other is 3 and I'm 25 years old and I don't let anything stop me. I worked hard for my gpa to reach a 3.0 so yes it hurt but keep moving forward even if we don't get it and have to attend a school we choose as a second option oh well life happens. So I hope you don't let go of your dreams and keep moving forward. Just pray about it. :)

    Thank you Bethany, I'm hopeful that since we received an orientation date we have a pretty good chance to get in. I will keep praying about it. I will definitely attend.

    I'm so upset now we have to wait even longer to see if we will be chosen since we are alternates. I pray we get in. If not I will unfortunately have to start looking stat for some private school to get into for August which I would dread but there is no way I can wait until January to start. I'm on a strict time frame due to personal reasons. Let's see how this turns out.

    Oh wow, well I hope this year is the same. Nursing is my passion and I have been waiting for this forever. I really do not want to have to end up going to another school like a private one because they are too expensive. There is just no way I can wait until January I have two small children and I am on a time frame. God willing all of us Alternates will get in.

    Bethany, do you know if all the alternates were accepted into the program from last semester or only some? I'm so discouraged because last year people with a 3.0 were accepted and I have a 3.0 now all of us with a 3.0 are Alternates pending seat avail. This really sucks
