All About Nursing

All About Nursing

Do you have a nursing program?

Hello Jazmin,

NursingYes, we do in fact have a nursing program here at St. Petersburg College!

Our nursing program is actually one of the most popular programs at our college. We currently offer either a Bachelor of Science in Nursing or an Associate in Science Degree in Nursing. Both of these degree programs have different curriculums. A bachelor’s will take you approximately four years to complete, while an associate in science will only take you about two years to complete. There is a catch to both of these scenarios. In order to qualify for our bachelor’s degree, you must first complete your associate degree.

I happen to know a lot of students who were very successful in SPC’s nursing program. My own mother is one of them! She completed her A.S. degree and then went on to pursue her bachelor’s at SPC. She is now a very successful registered nurse at All Children’s Hospital.

To find out more about our program including application deadlines and GPA requirements feel free to visit these web pages –

Good Luck!

Macro Tutoring

Macro Tutoring

 

I really need help in macroeconomics. Is there tutoring available for this course?

Hey Jenn!

I’m actually taking Macroeconomics this semester as well! It is a difficult course, but luckily there are a lot of available options for tutoring in this particular subject. There are learning centers at various campuses that have tutors offering help in a variety of subjects.

You could always also ask your professor if they do one-on-one tutoring during their available office hours. I take Macroeconomics at SPC Downtown, and I go directly to my professor if I need any additional help.

Here is a link that will help you choose a tutoring option.

I wish you the best & good luck in Macro!

Elementary Education

Elementary Education

Hello Stephan,

Any info on Elementary Education as I am degree seeking in this field. Thanks!!

There is plenty of information on the Elementary Education Degree that I can provide you with!

SPC actually offers all the way up to a Bachelor’s degree in Education. There are some specific courses that you would need to take before you get accepted into the Bachelor’s program. While working on your Associate in the Arts degree, you will need to take Introduction to Education (EDF 1005), Teaching Diverse Populations (EDF 2085), and Introduction to Educational Technology (EME 2040).

After these three courses are completed, you will be eligible for the Elementary Education program if you choose to continue your bachelor’s degree at SPC. Feel free to contact Pam Wilkins, the senior academic coordinator for the College of Education, for more help!

For more extensive information on this program, here are some links that will help you as well –

Good Luck!

Studying Tips

Studying Tips

 

Do you think that utilizing a tutor would be more beneficial than studying on my own time?

 

Hey Tori!

When it comes to the subject of studying, it’s always a difficult task. My first year at SPC I had no idea how to manage my study time or how to utilize the tutors available. I studied on my own for the most part. I found that, with this tactic, it took me a long time to grasp and comprehend specific information on my own. For example, last summer I took Statistics and let’s just say math isn’t one of my talents. I had a lot of trouble trying to think of different ways to study for tests. I then figured that it would work toward my benefit to seek tutoring. I started going to tutoring once a week for the rest of the semester. I ended up making a “B” in the course.

I can honestly say that using one of the available SPC tutors has been very beneficial. You should always study on your own time. But utilizing the tutors are very helpful as well, especially in problem areas such as writing and math. It also all depends on the type of person you are and how you prefer to study. Everybody learns differently.

Here is a link where you can check some of our tutors out on each campus!

Hope this helps!

Tutoring Help

Tutoring Help

Is tutoring really worth it ?

Hi Keondrea,

Absolutely, tutoring is worth it. Any areas that you’re having issues with the learning centers are able to help you. Best of all it is FREE! As a student, I took advantage of tutoring support for plenty of my classes especially in math. I was having a hard time understanding some of the concepts in statistics and the tutoring helped me out a lot.

It’s a relaxed environment and the tutors are all there to help, so it makes the experience more personable. You can go to a learning center on any campus and you don’t need an appointment so it’s really easy to find help. They are also open on nights and weekends!

Maria also shared in a previous post her personal experience with the learning centers. That may be helpful as well to review.

Best of Luck,

Marilyn
