The School of Nursing at Bethune-Cookman University offers a Bachelors of Science degree in Nursing. It is approved by the Florida State Board of Nursing and accredited by the National league for Nursing Accrediting Commission.

During the Amscot open house event, children's entertainment will be provided. Radio station WJHM, 102 JAMZ, will broadcast live from Amscot's parking lot and give away prizes. Free refreshments also will be provided.

At the Amscot grand opening, the Child Protection Education of America, Inc. (CPEA), a national nonprofit organization for missing children based in Tampa, will also be available on site to provide free fingerprinting for children through their "ID ME NOW" program.

The program produces a state-of-the-art, specially designed card for parents to keep. The card contains a set of the child's digital fingerprints, a black and white photo, a dental chart, and instructions on how to do a simple DNA collection. Safety brochures are provided with the fingerprint card, as well as an envelope containing further information on how to complete the child safety kit.

This information can assist parents and law enforcement officers involved with a missing child case. An interactive child safety CD-ROM can also be purchased for $5 at the event with profits going to the CPEA for creating the CD-ROM.
