The Pembroke Pines campus of Florida Career College (FCC), located at 7891 Pines Blvd., will offer two Associate's Degree nursing programs beginning on Jan. 3: a Level 1 beginner course and a transition course for Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs).
"Our nursing curriculum and instructors give students the education and training they need to be successful in the workplace," said FCC Pembroke Pines Executive Director Patricia Bisciotti. "We offer interactive classes with modern technology that simulates actual hospitals and real-life situations. Students complete their clinical rotation requirements at leading local hospitals and healthcare facilities."
The Level 1 program is a two-year, four-semester program which qualifies students to take the National Council Licensure Examination to receive the Registered Nurse designation. The one-year, three-semester transitional program is designed for LPNs seeking to become RNs.
"The multitude of job opportunities makes nursing a very popular career path, and we are pleased to meet this demand at our Pembroke Pines location," said Bisciotti. "Enrollment is now open for the nursing program and there is no waiting list."
Along with the new nursing program, FCC Pembroke Pines offers Allied Health programs in Health Services Administration, Medical Assistant Technician, Patient Care Technician and Medical Front Office and Billing.
