South Florida College of Nursing
South Florida College of Nursing offers an Associate Degree of Science in Nursing. The college is in Doral, FL and is approved by the Florida Board of Education and Commission of Independent Education. The curriculum and academic expectation at South Florida College of Nursing was developed by educators with years of clinical experience and an understanding of the skills required of a new graduate nurse entering the workforce.
Henry Olivera MD, ARNP founded the school as an NCLEX (National Council Licensure Examination) review in 2010. He agreed to meet with a group of students having difficulty passing their nursing boards. During their meetings, he provided free tutoring and support in achieving clinical competency. By word of mouth, the group grew from three students into a classroom of students. The initial three students passed their boards and subsequently, so have many others. He eventually turned the tutoring into a successful review and remedial program approved by the Florida Board of Nursing. The experience gained from the NCLEX review has been applied to the academic curriculum. The review is now integrated as part of the last two semester of the nursing program.
Dr Henry Olivera began his career as an emergency medical technician (EMT). He later went on to become the youngest paramedic and fire fighter in Broward County. Pursuing his education, he graduated with his Bachelor of Science in Nursing and a Master's degree in Anesthesia, as a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA). Dr Henry Olivera later completed his Medical degree and since has dedicated his career to nursing education. He is passionate about teaching nursing and is an advocate for the nursing student. He created a curriculum that provides students with fundamental nursing theories and clinical concepts that will enhance their learning. The philosophy at SFCN is to teach students with respect and compassion, exactly how we want them to treat their patients.
