PHSC will not show any priority preference from other schools. I had looked into possibly transferring a year ago and found that there are not many schools that do. PHSC will give you an additional 5 points if you are a Pasco or Hernando resident so make sure your DL has one of those counties. Other than that they look at your Pre-req GPA and TEAS score. That is how they have done it for years. Hope this helps you a little
I honestly can't remember the time frame for them. If I recall correctly almost everyone ended up getting it done all over. If you google the timeframe for them through the health department it should give you a better idea. At the end of your first year everyone will have to get the two-step PPD again. The school pays for a new background check and fingerprint check but you have to pay for your drug test for the second year out of your own pocket. That is what we are all going through right now
1 year for LPN and 1 year for transition to RN. If you have all pre-reqs complete for the transition you can apply immediately after the LPN program other wise you may have to wait a semester and finish those pre-reqs
Depending if you have micro or not the PN program is 5 days a week. The generic is 3 days. The LPN program is accelerated and moves much faster than the generic program; however, the generic program gets more in depth than the LPN
You will need to have copies of all the shot records to provide to the school. They turn around and give it to your potential clinical site as well. It sounds like all you would need is a physical then.
Oh and make copies of EVERYTHING you turn into the school. They are great at misplacing things!
Just a few more helpful tips for those that made it. If you don't have insurance the best prices were found at the Care One (one on County Line and one on Cortez) was the cheapest route to have your physical and shots. There were some cheaper places but they were located in Tampa.
Many of you are probably younger so you may have to go to your pediatrician to get shot records and if you don't have a primary and you are under 26, your pediatrician can still treat you.
All in all it ran over 300 for us that did not have insurance.
They last tidbit is make sure you get the two-step PPD if it is still required which means you get stuck twice. Some places thought it meant the first step was to get stuck and the second step was coming back to have it read... not the case. You have to get stuck twice and have two readings.
It depends, they plan on everyone rotating to a new site each semester; however, at the end of our first semester they gave 12 students an option to go to Trinity till the end. It is up to you but I prefer to go to several different facilities.
