Advanced Standing may be granted for students with prior nursing or midwifery education. As mandated in Florida Statue 467 (F.S. 467), previous student education will be assessed on an individual basis. “In no case shall the training be reduced to a period of less than 2 years” F.S.467.009 (2). Credit for previous education will be evaluated and granted when appropriate. If credit is granted, both education time and tuition will be reduced proportionately. The student’s contract will clearly state the specific tuition cost, courses and number of credit hours needed for completion of the program.
STUDENT LIABILITY INSURANCE: Students are required to be covered by liability (malpractice) insurance. The insurance policies must be renewed annually, are non-refundable and can not be prorated. The cost will be posted each semester. Students will pay for liability insurance per a separate agreement. Liability insurance is not covered by tuition fees.
CLINICAL SITE EXPENSES: Students are responsible for the expenses related to travel, and room and board to attend clinical sites. School is responsible to find clinical site for the midwifery students. All expenses will be left to pay expenses.
EQUIPMENT AND TEXTS: Students are responsible for the purchase of supplies, equipment and texts. Lists will be provided at the Student Orientations. Students can expect to pay $50 to $100 per term for textbooks and approximately $750 for supplies and equipment during the program.
