    Can anyone shed some light on the new admission procedure for 2013 that was possibly discussed during your orientation? If you know what it may entails, please inform. Thanks.

    @dream61792, with a gpa of 3.65, HOSA and a fairly good Hesi score, I think you have a good chance of being accepted. However make sure that you have done, Microbiology, and required Humanities,Social/behavioral Science,Writing classes.
    While you may be accepted to do your ASN you will need to have these classes completed to enroll in your final semester and graduate. At our (May 2012 students) pre-admission meeting, anyone who had not completed these classes was strongly advised to defer their seat as there would not be time to do them once in the program and you would not want to withdraw from the program with 1 semester left to go complete them.

    Hi guys

    Today I went in apply Again for the nursing program at central( this is my third time applying). I turned in my application but tonight I see my status says " Pre admission". What s that mean ? The first 2 times I applied It said " application in review" and later changed to " not accepted" . I am really confuse. Cause the application period just started and won't close until may 15, 2012. It s a little too early to show Pre admission. Is there anyone out there that having the same status as me ?

    Hi guys. I think preadmission means you're pretty much accepted. No one knows how this program is set up as far as getting acepted etc. A lot of people will defer..as May is slightly accelerated...and many who have been waiting since January will be ahead of you for May. The nursing process is very hard...they have yous et up for quite a ride. Those with kids, jobs etc. will suffer immensely but it can be done. I failed the lecture part, passed clinicals and am finishing up pharm. I have 4 kids and do not work. Could I have passed-yes I could have if I had more time to myself to study...but I do not regret anything thus far...all things happen for a reason..and I am super ready and motivated for second time around as well as wiser. I will say though, I am unhappy about a few things about this program...but at the same time I feel they have their reasons and must know something we don't. Most friends I know that go to FAU, or other schools seem happier, and are more successful. BCC really does emphasize the discipline part..but at times there is unclarity-Central more so specifically. Again, I don't want to put out excuses...but I felt quite unaware a lot of times...maybe because I didn't have friends from the program to inform me as many of my peers seem to...also the juggling of my life, kids and the new hours-plus studying efficiently. Advice I would love to give you guys to be successful and ahead of the game: Your first exam sets the mood and score for the rest of the tests...you don't realize how important it is, because you are used to winging it at times in regular classes...you can't do that in program. If you fail the second time..just withdraw. You can only fail twice in entire program. The studying...you need to use the powerpoints/modules/your notes/practice tests, read ahead, stay on top of things...don't cram,exercise all of the concepts..its all about the tests! There are no extra points or assignments. Trust me the uniforms, shoes, books are the least of your worries. If you are getting the books-get all of them and get them on Amazon. Tell your friends, family now about what is to come...get rid of FB, partying, BF/GF now..because you will not have a life! My kids suffered, they had school problems, pottying problems, behavior problems...they tell you this at a meeting before your first test. Listent to what theya re telling you. You get stuck in the glory..."yeahh nursing program..yeah ID's and uniforms...yeahhh...but what is ahead is a compelte transformation and it entails how bad you want this and what you are willing to sacrifice for it. Good Luck Friends.

    Third time is a charm...This may indicate that you will get accepted! Best of Luck!
