A career in nursing provides you with the opportunity to make a difference in peoples' lives, have job security and enjoy diverse job opportunities.  Unfortunately, not all nursing education programs are the same.

 

Some nursing education programs may not provide the same quality of nursing education or preparation to practice.

 

Nursing schools may be licensed in the State of Florida, but they may not have accreditation.  Be cautious if you are considering attending a school that is not accreditated!  Individuals who graduate from a non-accreditated school may have more difficulty passing boards, might not be able to pursue higher education and may have difficulty finding employment!
