Hi all,

I was looking for a post about SPC's fall 2020 nursing program and one hadn't been posted yet. So I figured I would make one. I know the application only opened a few days ago, so I might be getting a head of myself LOL. I applied early Saturday morning what about you guys?

Also, good luck to everyone!:)

I just applied! I planned on applying for Spring 2021 since I still have a few credits I need to take over the Summer, but I figured why the hell not! Might as well apply and see what happens! What's your GPA if you don't mind me asking?

Do you live in Pinellas County?! I live in Tampa, and I'm only 30 minutes away form the school! Do you know anyone that's been accepted outside of Pinellas County?

I live in St. Pete, so yes I'm in Pinellas 🙂 I don't know anyone that's been accepted to the program since I've only lived here a few years and mainly do online schooling. I do know though that they give preference to Pinellas County students

Hi! @brin11299  

Same here. I only have two more classes to take over the Summer. I'm not sure if my GPA is competitive enough or not, but like you said it doesn't hurt to try. 

My current GPA is 3.250 and after this semester (if things go according to plan) I believe it will be 3.5. I met with an advisor at the HEC she was super nice, and she told me I have a shot, so we'll see what will happen. I hope you get in!

Hello @Nataliepie

I do live in Pinellas county. Unfortunately I actually have not heard of anyone being accepted that lives outside of pinellas county:/. That doesn't mean it can't or hasn't happened though, so go for it girl!:) I would reach out to or make an appointment with an advisor at the HEC if you haven't already to get some advice.

I'm really hoping that with Covid going around they realize they need to accept more than 90 students per semester 🙄 the US, especially Fl, needs more RN's

Hi @Julia Zelaya ,

I understand how that goes. I hope now is your time and you get accepted:) I keep wanting to countdown the days, but there's still such a long wait.

@MaNixon thank you, Do you know around when we should start paying attention to emails? Being locked up makes the wait feel longer imo. Also, if we pass our NCLEX do you think we could get hired right away or would it be hard because we have no experience?

@Julia Zelaya

Application closes on May 15th and they review applications May 16th- June 30th. I would say It depends on if you have all of your pre-reqs done already or if you're still taking classes. If you have taken all of your classes you should be notified sometime in May. I would give them some time so probably start checking the week of the 24th, but sometimes they don't start sending emails out until June. If you're still working on classes or are on the alternate list you will probably get notified late June. I understand how you feel! I've been trying to keep myself busy with school and work. I also want to say I'm not 100% sure how they will do it, but that's just based on what I know. 

As far as getting a job after the NCLEX. You shouldn't have a problem getting a job, but it also depends on what unit you're applying for. There are a lot of students who actually have a job lined up prior to even graduating nursing school. I am actually a nursing assistant (soon to be nurse tech) at Tampa General Hospital. Since I am established I could just start there as a nurse prior to passing NCLEX. If you get a job before the NCLEX you have to have a date set to take your NCLEX and pass in order to keep your position.

SPC has one of the best nursing programs. A LOT of facilities, agencies, hospitals, etc love to hire SPC students, so you should be just fine. 🙂 

Hope this helps!
