    I plan on attending central campus, even though I hear it's the hardest lol Does anyone know how exactly it is that they notify us if we got accepted? Do they mail us a letter or an e-mail?

    Decision letters are sent to your Broward College email account. They do not mail letters via US Mail.

    Hi I'm a nursing student at North Campus. I know its stressful and nerve racking to see if you've been accepted. A word of advice if admissions say you'll know by the 15th you will know on the 15th and not a day before. Also if your not accepted don't. Worry they always do a second round of letters are sent out two weeks after the 15th. Many students either defer or decline their seats.
    When you do get accepted my best advice is buy th Perry and Potter fundamentals of Nursing book. Out of pocket don't wait for financial aid. Its a lot of reading in th program and if you can get a headstart then ready set go! It will be worth every dollar once you start! Exam 1 covers vital signs,health assessment,saftey,hygiene,documentation and nursing process! Told you its a lot! Get the book start reading you'll be glad you did!!!!! Another nugget of advice testing is not anything you've done before its all critical thinking! Do the review questions at the end of the chapters! good luck!!
    Deferrals are no longer accepted for any of the health science programs. This started with all August 2012 classes. If a student does not accept their seat, they are required to apply for the next start.

    Wow. But there's hope yet some people will decide not to start based on program cost, lack of aid, or whatever reason which will open more seats. Be hopeful and good luck! If not Jan then May just read while you wait!

    Yes, from what I was told when I called, they are no longer taking deferrals. However, if students decline their seats, they will review those students who were not accepted due to space and invite new applicants to join the class. Its a hard waiting game. Especially for those of us who applied back in July.

    *NOTE: NEW and readmitted students interested in applying to the college and being reinstated in the Nursing program must have completed a general education math requirement (area 5) and Microbiology (MCB2010&L). This change impacts the application periods for the January 2013 cohorts and beyond.Currently enrolled Nursing student who have not broken catalog and seek to apply to the Nursing program, and who are admitted prior to July 1, 2013, will not need to meet general education math requirement (area 5) and Microbiology (MCB2010&L) requirement. CHM1032 will remain a required pre-requisite. However, students who are not yet eligible to apply prior to July 1, 2013, and those who applied and were unable to qualify for a seat/admission by the same date, will be required to complete a general education math requirement (Area 5) and Microbiology prior to submitting or resubmitting their application.This is what I found on Broward college frequently asked question page* this should clear up a lot for everyone that is confused on the requirements for 2013

    Freaking ouuut...

    I think I'm going to need to start the dreaded Financial Aid process just in case I do get accepted. I read in other threads that they make you pay for everything as early as November!

    Hi all...I am posting for the 1st time. Thanks for all the helpful reviews. I too saw my application in review. However I made 84 in the reading portion of my hesi and my heart just sunk to see they have changed the score to 85 and above :.( I still don't understand why everything shows green. I guess I will have my answer by the 15th. So for this I am really really confused and not hopeful anymore but good luck to u all and I guess I have to take another shot at it then reapply in nov...

    Wait, so it's not the overall score they're looking at? They look at each section's score?
