    Hi everybody! I did hear back from broward college nursing department. I was told that they would accept CHM1032. They had mentioned if i had taken all my pre-reqs at broward I would be allowed. So my advice is just make a phone call and double check just to make sure. I asked if i needed special permission to apply using CHM1032, I was told no that I should apply by Sep 15.

    Hey There! What campus are you applying to? Im planning on going to north. Now all I need is the HESI! It sounds like you are in a good position to apply? How are your grades if you dont mind me asking?

    I am considering changing my major from nursing to health information management. I looked at the course and it sounds more me only downside most classes are in north.

    I am a bit disappointed to find out that I didnt get in because of defer May seats. That is not fair considering all the fees paid which are non refundable.

    Only thing some the classes I took for nursing don't apply to H.I.M.

    I had applied to attend central campus but didnt get accepted for August.

    Thank you so much! That is great news! I started taking general education classes to finish my AA and transfer, but I am going to reapply since this is what I truly want.

    The HESI is very simple. If you buy the study guide you should be fine. I studied for a little over a week and I got 91% overall

    I finally met with a central counselor and was told would need to take a math class to be accepted for Jan even though I have already taken CHM1032 and all the other pre-reqs, so i'm now taking mfg116 in order to meet the NEW requirements for next year admission. And was told that other math classes other than college algebra are accepted such as the one i'm taking.

    This just sucks - would not hve spent the money and time to take a math class in 6 week semester if could still use CHM1032. They are making a big mess for all of us....

    Either way you would still need the chemistry to graduate; and the math as well. That's good your getting it out the way now rather then later.

    From catalog on the BC website, CHM1032 is no longer listed as a Pre-req. See below. http://www.broward.edu/academics/pro...brary/2127.pdf

    This is great news for some of us! However, reality is that you still need to take the class since it's a prerequisite to Micro. AND, they highly recommend that you take Micro before you start program. So what exactly did they solve? Only thing I can see is that it no longer factors into your pre-req gpa.

    You're right. Not sure what they were trying to do...but have certainly created enough confusion. Maybe that's why some students have been told they are still going to accept CHM course instead of math for Jan. Otherwise, it's going to be a big surprise to some students who may not know of these changes and think they've completed all the pre-reqs when they apply for Jan.

    Wonder how they are going to calculate the pre-req gpa for those who have taken both the CHM and the now req Math?

    Omg. Just noticed this posted today. When and if anyone gets the real scoop on what's going to be required for January applicants, please, please post. http://www.broward.edu/admissions/Do...ements2013.pdf

    I dropped the Micro this summer to take the supposedly required math for January and registered for micro in the fall. Now the math req appears to be delayed but does the attached mean that Micro is a prereq before you can apply?

    OMGoodness!

    I just read the new requirement for the 2013-14 and beyond; and this change is very surprising. They have revised and changed their whole NP requirement to make is more challenging for those who want to apply and seek admission. I guess they have been saturated with so much applicants that they had to make it more difficult for those future prospect. As for the HESI you have to pass it on the first try, 80% and above, if not, you will have to wait 6 month to retake it again! Crazy! Also, Micro will be factored into the GPA; and Math is a general requirement that is needed as well before anyone applies.
