ADN Program Details
The Associate in Science (A.S.) degree in Nursing, also known as ADN, is accredited by the National League for Nursing and the Florida State Board of Nursing. Graduates receive an Associate in Science degree in Nursing and become eligible to take the licensure examination to practice as registered nurses. There are several tracks to become a registered nurse (RN):
The 22-month generic track for beginning nursing student (day track);
The 22-month generic track for beginning nursing student (evening/weekend track);
The one-year career mobility transition track for qualified Florida certified paramedic, licensed respiratory therapist and licensed practical nurses (Career Transition Track).
This is a limited-access program. Students begin the generic ADN program once each year in August (Term I, day track) or in January (Term II, evening/weekend track). Interested persons must first be admitted to Seminole State before becoming eligible to apply to the nursing program. The dates for the application period may vary. Students should be aware that acceptance to the College does not guarantee admission to the nursing program. Provisional acceptance into the program is contingent on satisfying Seminole State-mandated and healthcare agencies' requirements.
LPN Program Details
This program prepares the student for employment as a licensed practical nurse (LPN). It includes classroom, laboratory and supervised client-care learning experiences. The program is approved by the Florida Board of Nursing and the Florida State Department of Education. Upon satisfactory completion of the program, the student is eligible to apply to the State Board of Nursing for licensure, by examination, as a licensed practical nurse. Information and application may be obtained at information sessions held each term.
State Boards of Nursing have a responsibility to protect the public. In carrying out this responsibility, Boards of Nursing reserve the right to deny licensure to anyone who has been convicted of a crime other than minor traffic violations. Pursuant to Section 456.0635, Florida Statutes, the Florida Board of Nursing shall refuse to issue a license, certification or registration and shall refuse to admit a candidate for examination if the applicant has been:
-Convicted or plead guilty or nolo contendre (no contest) to a felony violation regardless of adjudication of chapters 409, 817 or 893, Florida Statutes; or 21 U.S.C. ss. 801-970 or 42 U.S.C. ss 1395-1396, unless the sentence and any probation or pleas ended more than 15 years prior to the application.
-Terminated for cause from Florida Medicaid Program (unless the applicant has been in good standing for the most recent five years).
-Terminated for cause by any other State Medicaid Program or the Medicare Program (unless the termination was at least 20 years prior to the date of the application and the applicant has been in good standing with the program for the most recent five years).
In addition, clinical agencies require criminal background checks prior to participating in activities at the clinical agencies. All students are required to have a criminal background check prior to admission to the nursing program. Admission into clinicals is at the discretion of the clinical agencies.
