    Where can I find a list of your course schedule? Are you offering the class Survey of Chemistry II or Intro to Chemistry II this semester?

  3. ANNE WAWERU says:

    where are the clinicals held. I LIVE IN texas.

    • dbernard says:

      Thank you for your interest in Florida Hospital College. Since our BSN is a completion program, one must already be an RN to be eligible for admission. Clinicals would have been completed in the coursework for obtaining the RN license, therefore our courses are more didactic in nature. We do include a practicum that can be completed at your current place of employment or a local hospital or clinic.

      Pre- BSN means that you are missing 1 or more of the pre-requisite courses required for the program. Please note any course you are missing you would be able to take with us; as all our courses are offered online, we would incorporate them into the curriculum.
