    I
    will give you an idea, you will have to register for 13 credits that will cost you around $ 1470, books around 400 you might get them cheaper online, the certificate it s 30 dollars online at ceufast.com medical exam, shots etc 260. scrubs 2 pants, 2 shirts 100. So you looking at $ 2000 t0 2200. yes financial aid gives up to 2775 per semester but you may qualify for less , it depends

    Hope it helps

    Well me and a few others had a different experience with cost. The first semester is going to be the most expensive by far. The total cost of the program cost around $6000 but you spend almost half in the first semester. My classes cost me $1568 + $1,100 in books, uniform and kits. All I got were the books that were needed for the first semester, including "Fundamental of nursing" which is used throughout the entire program.

    My financial aid gave me $2250 sub loans per semester but that's because I am currently working.

    Is anyone taking the program online?

    Hi,
    I wanted to know if anyone has any tips on passing nursing process 1? Because we've just taken our first test and I failed with a 30/50 and now need at least a 41 on the next two test to pass. So any tips would be very helpful

    [color=#000000][/color][color=#000000]i totally agree with you i personally started the nursingprogram at north campus and i had to leave it was totally not for me (atbroward college). From the moment i started all i heard was "withdraw" if youthink your gonna fail the test maybe you should "withdraw", if you think youcant make it because you got really sick maybe you should "withdraw". How aboutany words of encouragement? I understand there is little room and time for b.sand only the dedicated and people who want to be there will be there andsucceed but how is it trying to be a good, caring nurse when our examples don'tgive a dam themselves? I instead left and went to palm beach state and from themoment i walked into admissions it was completley different someone actuallystands there by the door and says "hi, is there anything i can help you with?"its funny too because a lot of people in my classes are from broward as welland live closer to broward but would have rather taken the drive and go to pbs thendeal with them. Other than that i wouldnever have anything bad to say about the nurses that come out of broward theydefinitly know what there doing but the program sucks i really wish they wouldbe just a tad bit nicer. l [/color]

    Presently into my third semester of pre-reqs at BC north. I am now adding college algebra on to my work load in the winter since I was told if I intend to apply into the program after July 1st 2013 I will most likely need college algebra as it will be replacing CHEM1032 as a pre-req for the nursing program. CHEM1032 will still be needed for the degree but will no longer be listed as a pre-req after that date. I attend North Campus and the program is tough but it challenges you to be a great nurse. Nothing worth having comes easy and we are going to be placed in the position where critical thinking is needed for patients safety. How is your experience so far?

    I can say personally that broward college is not for everybody.I started in the Fall at the south campus. I failed Nursing Process 1 lecture by 2 points (NO EXTRA CREDIT GIVEN). Many STUDENTS will start but few will make it to the end.I have decided to try at another school for my BSN instead of seeking reentry. I would like to know if any one else has failed BC program and moved on to another school?

    CONGRATS TO ALL OF YOU WHO ARE STARTING BC NSG PROGRAM IN MAY!!! YOU HAVE PASSED THE FIRST HURDLE. IM AN LPN CURRENTLY IN TRENDS WHICH IS THE LAST CLASS OF THE PROGRAM AND IT IS A GREAT FEELING. THIS SPRING BREAK IS THE FIRST TIME IVE GOTTEN A BREAK IN ALMOST 2 YEARS. I MUST SAY GETTING INTO BC NURSING PROGRAM IS THE EASIEST PART. BE PREPARED TO PUSH AND PERSEVERE. IT CAN BE DONE. ID LIKE TO SHARE MY JOURNEY IF YOU GUYS DONT MIND. I PASSED MY HESI A FEW DAYS BEFORE THE PROGRAM STARTED AND GOT ACCEPTED RIGHT AWAY. I WAS NOT READY TO START BUT I HEARD GOD'S VOICE SAYING, "I GOT YOU MY CHILD"! MY HUBBY, BESTIE, AND MOM SAID GO FOR IT AND THAT WAS ALL THE SUPPORT I NEEEDED. I PASSED THE MATH, PHARMACOLOGY, AND PROCESS 2. THEN I CAME TO GI/GU AND MY COUSIN WAS KILLED. I SHOULD HAVE INFORMED THE DEAN AND WITHDRAWN SINCE CLASS HAD JUST STARTED BUT I DECIDED TO PUSH FORWARD, I DID, AND FAILED. I WAS SO BROKEN FROM HIS DEATH THAT I WAS JUST GOING THROUGH THE MOTIONS OF READING AND NOT RETAINING ANYTHING. SO ONE OF MY FIRST ADVICE FOR ANYONE, ESP A GENERIC STUDENT( REM GENERIC CAN ONLY FAIL ONCE) IS IF YOU HAVE TOO MUCH GOING ON IN YOUR PERSONAL LIFE OR YOUR 1ST EXAM GRADE IS BELOW A 73, WITHDRAW AND TRY AGAIN. YOU WONT REGRET THIS DECISON. YOU DO NOT WANT TO FAIL IN THE BEGINNING, IT IS SO STRESSFUL FAILING IN PROCESS 1 OR 2 KNOWING YOU STILL HAVE 7 MORE CLASSES AFTER THAT. OK, SO WHEN YOU FAIL YOU HAVE TO TAKE MRS. ITALIA'S SLS CLASS THAT TEACHES YOU HOW TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN THE NURSING PROGRAM. IT WOULD BE GREAT IF YOU CAN TAKE IT BEFORE YOU START IN MAY. IF NOT AT LEAST DO YOUR RESEARCH AND BORROW THE BOOKS FROM THE LIBRARY JUST TO GET AN IDEA OF HOW YOU SHOULD BE CRITICALLY THINKING THROUGH NURSING SCHOOL EXAMS AND IMPORTANT THINGS LIKE TIME MANAGEMENT. YOU HAVE TO MAKE LOTS OF TIME TO STUDY. ID SAY LIKE 4HRS PER DAY MINIMUM. LISTEN GUYS/GALS PEOPLE ARENT LYING WHEN THEY SAY READ BEFORE LECTURE AND GO BACK AND REVIEW THE NOTES AND READ THE TEXT WITHIN A DAY AFTER LECTURE. THIS REINFORCES THE MATERIAL. DUH..LOL SO I TOOK ITALIAS CLASS AND THEN WENT BACK AND PASSED GI/GU, OB, AND THEN PYSCH. THEN I HAD MY NEXT STUMBLING BLOCK WHICH WAS MATH. I PASSED THE PEDS CLASS BUT DIDNT PASS THE MATH TEST AFTER 2 TRIES. SO MY NEXT ADVICE IS ALWAYS ALWAYS AIM TO PASS THE 1ST MATH TEST. IF NOT, YOU MIGHT BE LIKE ME AND WONT EVEN STUDY LECTURE, INSTEAD FIND YOURSELF DOING MATH EVERYDAY IN AN ATTEMPT TO PASS THE 2ND RETAKE. WHEN YOU FAIL MATH 2X YOU CAN CONTNIUE LECTURE BUT YOU CANNOT GO TO CLINICALS BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT CONSIDERED SAFE TO PASS MEDS IN THE HOSPITAL WITH GOOD REASON..LOL. ALWAYS BE PREPARED TO DO THE MATH TEST ON DAY 1 OF EACH NEW CLASS. YES, YOU WILL HAVE A 10 QUESTION MATH TEST EACH NEW SEMESTER CLASS THAT YOU MUST SCORE A 90% ON. DONT FRET, YOU CAN DO IT!! MS GREGG BRICKMANS SITE HAS WORKSHEETS ON IT TO PRACTICE FOR EACH NEW ROTATION. SO SINCE I FAILED MATH 2X I HAD TO RETAKE MS MELAINIE GULLIVERS MATH CLASS BEFORE I WAS ABLE TO REDO MY PEDS CLINICALS. I PASSED PEDS AND WENT ON TO ORTHO WHICH THEY SAY IS THEY HARDEST CLASS. IT WAS VERY HARD. I STUDIED MY BUTT OFF BUT PASSED. FOR ALL CLASSES GET LOTS OF NCLEX BOOKS AND READ YOUR RATIONALES. RATIONALES ARE YOUR BEST FRIENDS. UNDERSTAND WHY THE ANSWERS ARE RIGHT AND WRONG. DONT JUST RUSH THROUGH THE QUESTIONS JUST TO GET TO THE ANSWER. SOME GOOD NCLEX BOOKS ARE SAUNDERS, MOSBY,AND LIPPINCOTT. SO I THOUGHT I PASSED THE WORST WITH ORTHO BUT THAT WAS FAR FROM THE TRUTH FOR ME. OMG CARDIO WAS NO JOKE. I PASSED BY THE SKIN OF MY TEETH. AND YES I DO KNOW PEOPLE WHO CAME ALL THE WAY TO CARDIO AND FAILED SO HOLD YOUR FAIL CARD FOR THE VERY END. YOUR GOAL IS ALWAYS TO BANG OUT EXAM 1 AND 2. GO EXTRA HARD ON THOSE 2 BECAUSE ITS A HORRIBLE FEELING TRYING TO PLAY CATCH UP ON EXAM 3. EVEN WHEN YOU KNOW THE MATERIAL THE STRESS OF HAVING TO GET A HIGH MARK ON THE LAST TEST CAN CONSUME AND OVERWHELM YOU CAUSING FAILURE. IN PEDS I GOT AN 84, 74, 64, and in that order. guess what, THAT BROUGHT MY average TO 74...YES THE ANGELS WERE ON MY SIDE. I WONT LIE I WENT INTO THE LAST EXAM WORKING OVERTIME THINKING I HAD ALREADY PASSED SO BE CAREFUL NOT TO BE TOO COCKY/CONFIDENT.. IN CARDIO I GOT A 71,78,73. I CRIED AFTER MY LAST CARDIO EXAM BECASUE EVEN THOUGH I STUDIED HARD FOR EXAM 3 AND I KNEW I COULD HAVE PREPARED BETTER FOR MY 1ST CARDIO TEST AND I THOUGHT I FAILED. AGAIN I BARELY MADE IT. I COULD HAVE PREPARED BETTER FOR CARDIO BECAUSE IT WAS AFTER WINTER BREAK SO I HAD 3 WEEKS OFF TO STUDY BUT I WAS TIRED AND LAZY.LOL. DONT BE LIKE ME. GET AHEAD ON YOUR MATERIAL WHEN YOU HAVE WINTER, SPRING, AND SUMMER BREAK. I WORKED THE ENTIRE PROGRAM EXCEPT FOR AFTER I FAILED MY 1ST CARDIO TEST THEN I KNEW I HAD TO STOP WORKING FOR A FEW WEEKS AND GIVE THE BOOKS MY ALL. EVERYONE HAS THAT ONE CLASS THAT IS JUST NOT THEIR CUP OF TEA. FOR MY CLOSE FRIEND IT WAS ORTHO. SHE HAD TO PUT IN A LEAVE OF ABSENCE ON HER JOB AFTER FAILING THAT 1ST ORTHO TEST. SPEAKING OF FRIENDS, FIND 2 PEOPLE THAT WANTS THIS NURSING LICENSE BAD. AND PUSH ONE ANOTHER TO THE END. FIND SOMEPLACE QUIET TO STUDY LIKE SOMEONES HOME WHO IS SINGLE...ESP IF YOU LIKE TO STUDY AND EAT IN COMFY CLOTHES( THAT WAY YOU CAN TAKE YOUR BRA OFF LADIES...LOL) WE USED TO GO TO NOVA BUT HATED HAVING TO LEAVE THE ROOMS AFTER 3 HRS TO GO DOWNSTAIRS AND BE ON A WAIT LIST FOR ANOTHER ROOM. BUT NOVA IS EXCELLENT FOR INDIVIDUAL STUDY. ALL COLLEGE KIDS SERIOUS ABOUT THEIR STUDIES. I FIND THAT LOCAL LIBRARIES ARE TOO BUSY, ESP AFTERSCHOOL WHEN LITTLE KIDS GET OUT. LETS SEE WHAT OTHER ADVICE... OK GET YOUR BOOK BINDED, THIS WILL REALLY MAKE STUDYING EASIER THAN BRINGING AROUND THAT HUMONGOUS FUNDAMENTALS AND MEDSURG BOOK. THAT WAY YOU WILL HAVE ONLY THE CHAPTERS YOU NEED FOR YOUR 3 EXAMS. ITS EASIER TO STUDY THAT WAY AND YOU CAN BRING IT TO WORK OR WHEREVER WITHOUT EVERYONE KNOWING YOUR BUSINESS. TO BE TRUTHFULLY HONEST....THIS HAS BEEN THE GREATEST CHALLENGE OF MY LIFE. NOT EVEN CHILDBIRTH WAS THIS HARD. YES I SAID. IM A MOTHER OF 3 AND 9 YEAR OLD AND THE GUILT I FELT FROM BEING AWAY FROM MY BABIES WAS INSANE.THE DAYS BEFORE EXAM I WOULD STUDY FOR 12 HRS A DAY. AND THATS WITH BREAK. GUYS, YOU MUST BREAK, IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO STUDY 12HRS WITHOUT BREAK. TAKE LIKE A 30 MINUTE BREAK EVERY 2-3HRS. CALL SOMEONE WHO LOVE OR WHOS ROOTING FOR YOU JUST TO HEAR THEIR VOICE OR A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT. IT SOUNDS MUSHY BUT SOMETIMES THATS ALL THE PUSH YOU NEED TO KEEP GOING. DO SOMETHING WITH THE ONES U LOVE AFTER EACH EXAM..MOVIES, DINNER, JUST KICK BACK AND UNWIND IF YOU CAN AFTER GRADES POST..LOL YOU'VE EARNED IT. OK SO ORTHO-NEURO I FELT LIKE I WAS GOING TO HAVE A STROKE, HAD EVERY MIGRAINE IN THE BOOK, AND IN CARDIO I FELT LIKE I WAS GOING TO HAVE A HEART ATTACK..NO LIE...LOL ITS NORMAL. YOU MIGHT EVEN FEEL LIKE YOUR HAVING A MENTAL BREAKDOWN AT TIMES. WHATEVER YOUR FAITH IS, DRAW CLOSER TO THE HIGHER POWER YOU BELIEVE IN. OH YEA IN THE BEGINNING I USED TO HAVE THE BUBBLE GUTS BEFORE EVERY EXAM... GUESS WHAT GALS/ GUYS, IT NEVER WENT AWAY I JUST TRIED TO GET THROUGH MY NERVES AT HOME AND NOT IN THE SCHOOL BATHROOM. HAHA!!! WHAT ELSE CAN I SAY. IT MIGHT SOUND ELEMENTARY BUT STUDYING RIGHT UNTIL EXAM IS NOT LOGICAL. TRY TO GET A FEW HRS OF SLEEP BEFORE EXAMS ATY LEAST 6HRS. THESE ARE JUST A FEW OF THINGS I WISH SOMEONE TOLD ME BEFORE I STARTED THE PROGRAM. AND YES TRENDS START FOR ME THIS WED BUT YOU BETTER BELIEVE EVEN THO ITS MY BEST BUDS BDAY TOMMORROW WE WILL DEF BE MEETING UP TO DO MATH PRACTICE BEFORE CLASS. I APOLOGIZE FOR ALL THE ERRORS IN ADVANCE..GOT TOO MUCH ON MY MIND. I HOPE THIS HELPS A LITTLE. REM YOU ARE ONLY IN COMPETITION WITH YOUR SELF NO ONE ELSE YOUR GOAL IS TO COMPLETE THE PROGRAM. DONT WORRY ABOUT YOUR PRIDE AND SHAME THAT GOES OUT THE WINDOW IN NURSING SCHOOL. HUMILITY GOES A LONG WAY. ONE MORE THING DONT LOOK DOWN ON YOUR CLASSMATES WHO FAIL BECAUSE YOU MIGHT MEET RIGHT BACK WITH THEM IN THE END. WE NEED TO BE THERE FOR ONE ANOTHER, SUPPORT AND ENCOURAGE EACH OTHER. NURSES ARE SOMETIMES THEIR OWN WORST ENEMY. IM NOT SAYING DROWN YOURSELF AND SAVE THE NEXT PERSON BUT DO YOUR BEST TO MEET OTHERS NEEDS. IF YOU SEE SOMEONE WHO NEEDS HELP WITH THEIR SKILLS CHECK OFF OFFER A HELPIN HAND, IF YOU SEE SOMEONE GRABBING THE WRONG NEEDLE, WARN THEM. IF AN INSTRUCTOR JUST CHEWED YOU OUT FOR NOT BEING PREPARED SAVE THE REST OF THE GROUP THE PAIN BY SAYING HEY DONT FORGET THESE THINGS... I COULD GO ON ALL DAY. I WISH THERE WAS A BOOK ON HOW TO SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETE BC NSG PROGRAM BECAUSE NO SCHOOL IS COMPARABLE TO HOW INTENSE BC IS

    Does anyone have any horror stories about Broward College North campus? I don't tend to see a lot of negative comments about the north campus on here. I am now considering which campus to attend and it seems Broward College North might be the best out of the three.
