    I am because I'm mentally over doing it, which is overwhelming me. I just want to get it over with so I can focus on other things.

    I am taking Chem1032 , Mat1033 (in case I need to take the Algebra credit if it changes again and REL2300 ( my last elective needed according to the degree audit ) in Winter 2013. My Chemistry course is over 4/23/13 so I plan on applying to the nursing program within the app period of March -May for August 2013. I am trying to get in without the Micro as a pre req because the classes are twice a week for lecture and twice a week for lab and only day time classes. I work full time and can't afford to take that much time off work just for a pre req class, If i was in the actual program already it's different because then I know my time was not wasted on taking all these pre req classes and not being accepted after that. I took the HCP class at Sheridan Tech which I HIGHLY RECOMMEND. So all I need now is the HESI and to finish the Chem. Am I the only one not doing the Micro first to apply?

    Hey What book are you using to study? I am looking online for a good one and I am not sure which one everyone is using. I know we are taking the Hesi A2 right? thats basically the same stuff as using the regular Hesi exam book right?

    @ Juliansmom2011 I agree ^^^^. That 6 month wait period is what's getting to me. Praying for a great outcome the 1st time around, for us ALL.

    @ Yankeesgirl907 In winter 2013 I am taking Micro with the lab (same instructor for both classes on the same day), MAC1105, REL2300, DEP2004 (all online), and HCP0001 @ BC (highly thinking about dropping this course and taking it at Sheridan Tech).

    CHM1032 is no longer a required pre-req, but you do have to take this course before you take Micro (might as well have been kept as a required pre-req, if you ask me, LOL). You have the option of doing Micro in the summer or after you complete the program, which you may already know is highly recommended to do before starting the program. Now for the HESI exam I brought the study guide from BC and I also purchased a study guide from www.readyforthehesi.com, the makers of the exam.

    On the PDF Q&A sheet it stated, "11. Can the test be retaken?Yes. Re-test is permitted after the initial unsuccessful testing result with an additional cost for the
    test applied for every attempt. However, as of August 2013 will have a limit of only two (2) attempts
    for the HESI Test with six (6) months between the first and second attempt. The second attempt
    requires the HESI A2, Version 2."
    This is still not clear to me, does this apply to future prospect who would be applying for 2014 because it says as of and not for the incoming August 2013. To me, that means we can retake it as many times, until August 2013. Do you understand what I'm saying?

    As for the HCP 0001 I will try to get a waiver since I have a licence and still working as a tech.

    @ Juliansmom2011, I completely understand what you're saying but according to this, http://www.broward.edu/admissions/Do...ements2013.pdf, it says for August 2013 applicants and beyond. It's really hard to figure out what information to follow because one form says this and another says something totally different.

    In addition to that, for August 2013 and beginning with 2014, there's an SLS requirement.

    I took a look at the other admission criteria, and it stated what you mentioned above. Oh well, just got to study; and hope for the best at the first try. Also, what is an SLS course? Do we need to complete this course before we apply to the program or before the we begin the program?

    I just spoke with an advisement counselor, and she stated they have yet to decide what SLS (Student Life Skills) course they want students to complete, so until they decide we don't have to take the SLS course.

    @ Yankeesgirl907, My earlier statement about the options to complete Micro with the lab is no longer true. Micro with the lab is now a required pre-req, along with a college level math, or higher (ie statistics).
