Hello everyone...

I'm thinking of picking up, packing up, and moving to the area. I just want to know if anyone can recomend a junior college or university that I can check into. I'm currently a Licensed nurse and I have only a few classes left to be able to apply into a program. I just want to make sure I'm heading in the right direction. I will check back later for living options. Thanks - cant wait to meet anyone who is willing to help with advice.

I'm currently taking pre/co requisites to enter a nursing program. There is PBCC, which has a LPN-RN bridge program. The offer their nursing program on the Lake Worth and Belle Glade campuses only. Programs start in August and January. Since you're a LPN you will be take a placement test to see what area of the program you need to fall into. From what I've heard most people fall into the second semseter, I'm told it is very hard to test into the third semester. There is also Broward College. I'm pretty sure they have a LPN-RN bridge option too. They have four I'm pretty sure they offer nursing on each of their campuses. They have programs starting in January, May and August, but not all campuses offer the May program. From what I've been told about Broward College, North campus is best education-wise, but some instructors treat their students like crap. Both Broward College and PBCC (Palm Beach Community College) accept students based on points systems. Miami-Dade Community College offers a also. I don't know much about it yet though. Then there is FAU (Florida Atlantic University), they offer a BSN, but I think you need to have an RN first, unless you do the generic program. I think they have a pretty extensive waiting list though. Also, there is Palm Beach Atlantic, it's a private college, with very expensive tuition. Don't know much about the program they offer either.
I hope I've been helpful. If there is anything else I can help you with, let me know.

I went to and got my RN from PBCC-lake worth campus. It was a great education and experience. Some great professors/teachers who have been teaching in the nursing program there for eons.
