    I originally signed up for Micro to take over the summer but then dropped the class because I would literally be in class M,T,W,T and I'm getting married in May so I would be missing classes. I decided that if I take It in the fall I would have more options available like timing wise .. Maybe on the weekend or something. Actually I did not pass the HESI by 4 points. I got an 81 and they made the score 85. I'm done with Broward, I applied to Nova so I hope and pray I get in there... This 6 month waiting period to take the HESI again in BC is absolutely CRAZY. I'm not wasting away a year on nothing . Did you take it yet ?
    Congratulations on your marriage and good luck at Nova!!! I'm sorry things didn't go as you planned with Broward, but it's good to know that we all have other options, when plan A doesn't work out. I still have NOT taken the HESI and will probably do so at the end of the month or next month; Micro has given me a run for my money.

    I wish you the best of luck!!!!

    P.S. that 6 month wait period really does suck

    What are your plans for school? When do you plan to attend and where? Is your GPA competitive and did you take the HESI?

    Since this is a blog about BC program I would love to hear from anyone that wants to apply for broward, any insight to the HESI and would like to hear from anyone who is in nursing at broward now.
    Hello alokiheath!! My plans for school is up in the air right now. I am planning on applying for Broward College in January, my original plans where to apply for August, but I was in a bad car accident and my vehicle was totalled . I was also looking into other schools but when I graduated high school, lots of years ago, I was granted a scholarship for Broward College's Nursing program, so I'm really leaning toward sticking with BC.

    I plan to attend either August 2013 or January 2014, at South. My GPA currently is 3.5. I am currently taking MAC1105 and MCB2010/ with lab and after this semester it should go up. I have not taken the HESI yet but as soon as I do, I'll post about how it went.

    Hey everyone.. I wanted to join in this thread since I will be applying for the Fall 2013 program. I just wanted to say that I understand everyone's frustrations about all the changes BC has made in the past year or so! I spent all of last year setting up to apply for Winter 2013 only to get a pre-req GPA change and Hesi score change with no warnings!! Once I knew I wasn't going to be able to make it for Winter 2013 I got hit with their pre-req additions. Luckily I was preparing for a BSN so I had already taken MCB. Anyways I'll try to wrap this up... I'm rambling lol.. I'm re-taking a General Math course just so I can get my pre-req GPA higher and praying that I get in this Fall.. I also hope I don't have to take the Hesi exam again with this whole 6 month fiasco. (I took it twice before the change). My advice for you guys is don't give up I know it's annoying waiting for months or a year but the time will pass by anyways. There is a program out there for you! Stay focused and informed! Also.. don't trust your advisers so easily unless they are from the healthcare program. You won't believe all the conflicting "advice" I have received from counselors. Has anyone else developed a BC Nursing program phobia? I can't stop looking at the pre-req chart fingers crossed that nothing has changed lol.

    Welcome Cathydotcom. I too will no longer be with the 2013 group. However January 2014 I plan to be sitting in the BCC Nursing program. It's a bit frustrating with the changes that were made however; I feel it is to weed out the weak. That's just my opinion. Again welcome.

    I too am looking at Nova's program. I just wish it weren't so expensive. I recommend bringing your unofficial transcripts into to them and have them review it before spending the money on applying. I know they don't care about the HESI, but grades are vital. You need an over (cum) GPA of 3.0 plus at least a 3.0 in their pre-reqs.

    With the change in how many times the HESI can be taken.......are the minimum percentages no longer required for passing?
    ex: if I got a 75% on one section can I still apply, and still be accepted.

    Or is it now that the HESI test is only used for tie breakers regardless of the score.....ex: students A and B both have 3.3 GPAs and student A had an average of 79% and student be had an average of 75%. would student A be accepted over student be? or neither?
