    PI got in and my GPA was 3.0. I also did not have Hosa! So my total score was a 6. So have some faith!
    Your post has just saved me, I am literally about to cry! I don't know what you got on the hesi but Broward only gave me 6 points. ( i don't live in broward) and my actual GPA is a 3.2 but they did not count mirco or chem lab towards the pre-req gpa.

    6 pts
    82% on the hesi
    I have mirco (A) and the lab, and chem lab (b)

    I have been crying my eyes out the day I saw how many points they awarded me, because I am so afraid of not getting in, YOU JUST GAVE ME HOPE.

    thank you so so so much

    Hey, I've been reading lots of threads, watching youtube vids and other reviews for books to help with nursing school and critical thinking. One of the books I found was Fundamentals Success: A Q&A Review Applying Critical Thinking to Test Taking (Davis's Q&a Success) by P Nugent & B Vitale. Its a bit expensive and I couldn't find it at the library but I was able to get a ebook online. It really breaks nxclex and nursing type questions down helping you to see exactly what each question is really asking. (message me for details if you want a copy)

    I also got " How to Survive and maybe even love Nursing School" and " mosby's tour guide to nursing school"(borrowed from library) and I pre-ordered "saunders student nurse planner" on amazon with a gift certificate i won.

    Any other getting through nursing school book suggestions?

    Aw I'm glad I made you feel a bit better. I made an 88.96% on the Hesi, it's not bad but it's not great. I had applied twice and not get in. I was very discourage. I was about to give up. Idk why i was checking my BC email one day but I got an email inviting me to orientation! Everything works out in its own little way so don't give up!

    Hey I'm new and really don't know how to work the site....well I have a 8 points from my g.p.a, no hosa points or Broward county residence points, and over all 82% on my Hesi...I wanted to know do I have a fighting chance of being accepted

    I don't think anyone will know the answer. You will just have to wait and see. I heard for the may term everyone who applies usually gets in. No one wants to do the May term because its intense so perhaps that's why people with fewer points will get accepted but for the aug term there is a lot more people applying and the cut off will be higher.

    Hey everyone I just want to give you a sense of hope. I remember when I was in the same situation as most of you, hearing everyone gossiping about how you need a 4.0 to get in this program. I'm living testimony you don't need a 4.0, I had a 3.4 with a 88% overall Hesi score, in addition I have friend in the program who had a 3.1 who was accepted with me. This program has been rough I'm not going to lie, I started with a class of about 70 something (South Campus) and we are down to about 20 and I'm in OB right now... (Actually have clinical in the morning lol) I recently just turned 23 and let me tell you it takes will power to do well and PASS. If you are my age you can kiss your party days good-bye if you want to succeed in this program. You need to appreciate you are going to lose friends because of your demanding schedule (Example: today was Memorial Day and I spent all day doing 3 care plans and studying, not once did I breathe fresh air in today.), however you will make the most amazing friends in this program. Those are the only people who will understand your pain (not even MDC students will understand your pain {I know people in MDC program and they have time to lay out by the pool drinking Margaritas}). This program will push you to your breaking point (I'm a guy, and I've become an emotionally roller-coaster because of this program). I promise there will be days you'll feel like giving up, but that support system you developed at school will push you to finish. Then one day it will be your turn to motivate your classmate to drive through that "depressed phase" you felt a week earlier. As you read this I don't want you to build any negative perceptions toward Broward College Nursing program. If anything I know that this program will develop you into the best nurse you can potential become. As each semester passes I astonish myself by how much I know. This program is "no joke", I've spoken to several students at local schools (*cough cough*, FIU, Nova, and Keiser) who are amazed by how much clinical experience we earn and how much more we are taught. On another good note to us “3.4er's”, most of the “4.0” students are long gone because they were only good at memory based knowledge and unable to critically think, or the other half cheated their way to perfect scores (reality sets in for the cheaters when they are tested faced to face all alone with no one to help them, but their brain and time they've put in). Overall if you want to become competent nurse you have came to the right place, this school will prepare you.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to give us hope. While I deferred from summer start so I'm not worried about getting accepted I was a bit discourage by all the negative posts from people who failed or dropped out. I have 2 friends in the program (South) and they do serve as examples that the program is hard but entirely doable. Your post just reiterates what they said. Thanks for the encouragement and congrats to you for making it to OB!
