TARPON SPRINGS - If it feels like the students at East Lake High School are younger this year, it’s because they are. This year, some of them are middle school students.

The students, dressed in polo shirts and khaki shorts, shuffle from class to class on a bell schedule separate from the high school. They don’t eat lunch with the high school students or take gym with them. They rarely even share a hallway. Instead, in a cluster of portables by the baseball field, the East Lake Middle School Academy of Engineering is finding its own identity.

ST. PETERSBURG - Utica College, a leading provider of higher education, recently launched its Accelerated Second Bachelor’s Degree Nursing program in St. Petersburg to address the rising shortage of nurses in the region and across the state of Florida.

“This is an exciting time for the Tampa Bay area as well as for Utica College, and we are eagerly anticipating the launch of our Accelerated Second Bachelor’s Degree Nursing program in St. Petersburg in August,” said Dr. Todd S. Hutton in a press release. Hutton is the president of Utica College. “There is so much opportunity for students pursuing nursing careers today. As our population ages and the demand for nurses grows, it is critical to provide the latest educational advancements required to improve the delivery of health care. We are committed to giving our nursing students a curriculum that is in step with those advances and helping them to successfully complete their bachelor’s degree program in just four semesters. We are confident they will graduate with the necessary leadership and clinical skills to excel anywhere in the health care industry.”

Headquartered in northeast St. Petersburg and centrally located to all area hospitals, at Utica College, students can earn a baccalaureate degree in nursing in just 16 months through a combination of online and classroom learning and complete clinical hours at top healthcare facilities under the supervision of registered nurse educators. The program is a full-time plan of study designed for compassionate and dedicated professionals who already hold a bachelor’s degree in a non-nursing field and are motivated to become a nurse.
