The amount of flames in the fire, I'm guessing.

where has everyone else applied? i see some of the same names on other forms (like UNF!!) 

UF only right now, though I'm submitting an application to FAU's accelerated program. Was just looking around and apparently they've got an excellent program with a really high NCLEX passing rate! Their deadline for Fall Semester is March 1, I believe.

The variety of backgrounds for students and the expectation that we already know how to study/that we can study fairly independently. It’s only a guess though.

And definitely the ability to handle the intensity. Although I think any way you slice it, Nursing school is tough.

Other than that, I’m in the dark too.

I went to UNF’s “So you want to be a nurse?”, but is there something similar for UF? It never occurred to me till now that this could exist. I didn’t see any announcements on the website. I’d be curious to see the Jax campus.

i was curious if there is any difference in the degree you will receive. i know some traditional programs at community colleges only award your associates degree and not your bachelors so i was wondering if that was the same for universitiy traditional programs as well!

as far as i know, UF does not offer anything like that! 

it would be super great if they did but i have never heard of anything like that 😞

Right! I see what you mean now. Most community colleges, such as FSCJ offer an Associate that gets you to the NCLEX, and you’re an RN just the same as a BSN student who passes the NCLEX. But ADN nurses need to do an extra RN to BSN program (more advanced classes, such as leadership classes) if they want to get a BSN (which nowadays many hospitals require in large cities when hiring new nurses). 

There is no difference between BSN and Accelerated BSN however. You end up with a BSN and are qualified to take the NCLEX.

to clarify, if you attend community college, you get your ASN & then complete an RN-BSN bridge program. if you attend a university, and do either traditional or accelerated, you graduate with your BSN

both ASN and BSN are considered RNs.

is that all correct?? 

thanks so much haha

Yes that is correct. 

ASN and BSN can both become RNs once they pass the NCLEX. Most hospitals want BSN but will hire ASN and just require them to complete an RN to BSN program within a time frame.
