    I took Microbiology years ago on central campus-I loved it! I found it easier than Biology A&P and Chem....lots of hands on and experiments to do, and it was easier to memorize

    Does anybody know what the point or gpa cut off was for the Jan 2012 program?

    Can you tell me how you calculated the gpa including the lab. I am not sure why it posted my grades so closed together but to make sure my grades are a&p1B lab B, a&p2 B lab C, enc 1101 C, chem B lab A. I did not take HOSA in school only a Broward county resident. I submitted my application today and it says I have 3 points. I don't understand how that was calculated.

    Base on your grade your nursing prerequisite gpa (excluding Chem Lab) is 2.7. Without HOSA (with HOSA additional 5pts)the maximum points for your nursing prerequisites is 16pt plus 1 points for being a broward resident which would be 17 points. That is :
    4.0=16pts + 1pts broward resident= 17 pts
    3.9=15pts
    3.8=14pts
    3.7=13pts
    3.6=12pts
    3.5=11
    3.4=10
    3.3=09
    3.2=08
    3.1=07
    3.0=06
    2.9=05
    2.8=04
    2.7=03

    Then you can had the additional 1 point for broward resident if you are. Which would give you 4pts

    hey do not count chemistry lab as a part of the nursing prerequisite, so they will not add that in the calculation

    I don't think so..... I know last semester when i was applying to the program they weren't open on fridays. North Campus that is, just call in the A.M to double check.
