The beautiful campus, affordable tuition, stellar faculty, small class size, and open-door policy made Florida Southern College a wonderful step along my career. Everyone there cared about my success and did their best to accommodate my needs. My degree from Florida Southern has opened doors and opportunities for me to advance beyond bedside nursing. Now I am a member of the hospital medical staff assessing and providing treatment consultation for community providers.
