Sep 25, '12Quote from levzahav9Basically those who have the most points will be accepted into the program.
"Grade Point Average RequirementIn order to apply for admission to the college's nursing program, prospective students must meet the minimum grade point average requirements. Nursing shall require a minimum grade point average of 2.5 in all college level nursing prerequisite courses. There are sixteen (16) possible points that may be awarded for the G.P.A. in the nursing prerequisite courses.
- 2.5 = 1 point
- 2.6 = 2 points
- 2.7 = 3 points
- 2.8 = 4 points
- 2.9 = 5 points
- 3.0 = 6 points
- 3.1 = 7 points
- 3.2 = 8 points
- 3.3 = 9 points
- 3.4 = 10 points
- 3.5 = 11 points
- 3.6 = 12 points
- 3.7 = 13 points
- 3.8 = 14 points
- 3.9 = 15 points
- 4.0 = 16 points
- There is one (1) possible point that can be earned for Broward county residents. Residency for the purpose of earning this point will be based strictly on the students' address and not college residency requirements for paying in-state fees. Points will not be awarded if a post office box number is provided.
Under the articulation agreement for Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA), students will be awarded five (5) points for those students meeting the HOSA requirements within a two year time frame from the time the application is submitted. The five points will be granted during the admission selection process. All admission requirements' must be satisfied to receive the points.
- Highest total points will constitute an offer for admission based on seat availability.
- In the event of a tie, students will be given one(1) point for the completion of each college-level, general education course that is required toward the Associate of Science Degree for the Nursing Program. In the event that a tie remains, the point will be awarded to the student with the highest grades in the required courses. General Education courses completed prior to admission may be used to assign points in the event there is a tie for a seat.
- General education courses completed prior to admission may be used to assign point in the event there is a tie for a seat. (Humanities course, Social Behavioral Science course and Microbiology Theory & Lab."
^This is for every term before ours...we need a B in all prereqs to apply!
UPDATED REQS THAT WE POSTED AWHILE AGO
Sep 25, '12Quote from wwick13I applied at Central Campus and I haven't been awarded points.I dont think anyone who handed their application in north got points...they must be sticking to the new guidelines ! so annoying that all the campus' are different
Sep 25, '12Thats weird.i also applied at central and i got points..even hosa points.. idk hopefully we hear something by next week..
Sep 25, '12FYI: The new admission guidelines clearly states what the new requirements are check post #130 for details.Last edit by Getting To Great on Sep 25, '12 : Reason: clearity
Sep 25, '12Quote from lex7626Did you apply to nursing school before the current period? Could the points showing be points which were awarded for a prior semester when they were awarding them?Thats weird.i also applied at central and i got points..even hosa points.. idk hopefully we hear something by next week..
Sep 25, '12Nope..this is the first semester i applied.. and when i dropped off the application i brought hesi scores, hosa cert, and hcp cert from sheridan...the lady told me how many points i had and it shows on my bc also..
Sep 25, '12Quote from Juliansmom2011I know what the requirements are..but the health admissions person told me otherwise..she told me my points and sent my hosa info to nursing dept for credit.. but like i said i dunno, every one is getting conflicting info.. i dont care what they use i just want to get in lolFYI: The new admission guidelines clearly states what the new requirements are check post #130 for details.
Sep 25, '12Quote from lex7626I agree, as long as I'm in I'm happy (: ! I applied at central and got my points also. But idk the info keeps changing and even at the same campus we are getting opposite answers... I don't even think we have the same status update so I don't know... This is a mess :/BC needs to organize this better and get us all on the same page!!!(Including the staff)I know what the requirements are..but the health admissions person told me otherwise..she told me my points and sent my hosa info to nursing dept for credit.. but like i said i dunno, every one is getting conflicting info.. i dont care what they use i just want to get in lol
Sep 25, '12OMG I keep reading all of these different hings that I don't know what to believe! I turned in my application and I haven't received any points for anything. I read somewhere that someone turned in their HOSA certificate in with their application. I took HOSA in high school but I didn't receive a certificate for completing it. Wouldn't that just show up in my high school transcripts? I'm getting nervous now that I won't get those five extra point=/
Sep 25, '12It should be on ur transcripts.. it is more nerve wrecking this term bcuz all these changes and more changes as well as none of the staff is on the same page.. so we r all getting different answers..
Sep 25, '12Quote from lex7626I handed my app to the lady at central. She calculated and told me my GPA and said no points would be awarded for Jan admission. Only HESI and GPA to be considered. I don't have any points awarded on BC limited access page. What a confusing mess! I hope they figure out whatever they're doing soon...Nope..this is the first semester i applied.. and when i dropped off the application i brought hesi scores, hosa cert, and hcp cert from sheridan...the lady told me how many points i had and it shows on my bc also..
Sep 25, '12I know right.. and i applied at central too.. hopefully they get it together and streamline the process..
