Does anyone have apartment suggestions close to where we would be doing classes and clinicals ? I will have a car but I don't want to commute long, and also I am not sure how bad parking is...

Like to get a head start on researching my options

I lived at the district on Kernan in Jax when I did my internship in Florida, and I absolutely loved it! It was a nice area by multiple hospitals, and it was fully furnished with a lot of amenities. Unfortunately, the main hospital in Jax is not in a good area so just make sure to research apartments that are far enough away, but close enough so the drive isn't horrible.

Hello, I have a question about the transcript process. Recently I applied to two other schools for next year in the 2017 - 2018 section. Since I'll be applying for the 2018 - 2019 for UF's ABSN Summer 2019 program would I have to resend my transcripts to NursingCas again?

Thanks!

As far as I know, we don't need to send our official transcripts through NursingCas. We just have to send those directly to U of F.

So far I've only had to upload an unofficial transcript of my prereqs into NursingCAS.

Hi there!

Most of your clinicals will be done at the main hospital which is downtown. But you could still get rotations in other areas such as orange park. A lot of the current students live downtown in Riverside or the San Marco area. As someone mentioned, the main hospital is in a pretty bad area, so definitely try to find somewhere that you personally feel safe (which it seems like Riverside and San Marco are the better areas, closest to the hospital).

I personally live over near the town center and some also live in southside. These are both slightly farther away but I definitely feel safer over here... plus it's closer to destressing activities, like the beach!

:-)

Hi All, Thanks for the discussion.

I am also excited in applying for the 2019 cohort. I am not yet submitted either of the applications. I have my undergraduate degree in India. I am confused about the transcript requirements. Do I need to do a credential evaluation? The post-bac application doesnt tell anything about it. what about CAS?

Hey there! I completed my degrees in France. I did not send in a WES evaluation with my postbacc since UF evaluates degrees. After I submitted my postbacc electronically, they had me send in physical copies of:

Official transcripts from my French university

Certified translations of all transcripts and diplomas

Copies of my diplomas

I also had to send in a TOEFL score (you'll have to check if you need that)

Then for NursingCAS I had to upload unofficial transcripts for my prereqs only, but those were done here in the US.

Call UF to find out exactly what they need for your particular situation. They are super helpful. You will also need your UF ID to send in the material, they can give it to you over the phone 48h after you submit your postbacc application.

So I just noticed that under "colleges attended" in NursingCAS there is an option to order a Wes evaluation. It may be necessary to send in an evaluation. I just ordered a duplicate evaluation for that section, just in case.
