Oct 11, '12Quote from nicolettebarberaThey have to be done before JanDo we register for these HSc classes now and do them this semester


Oct 11, '12Quote from nicolettebarberaAt the preadmissions meeting, they will go over all the HSC courses as well all other paperwork we are required to have done.Thanks but one of the classes r online online do u have any suggestions

Oct 11, '12You have to finish your HSC/CAE certifications to actually begin the nursing program. Log in to MyBC and go to registration>add/drop> search for HSC (insert appropriate course numbers) and CAE0617, which is Prevention of Medical Errors  Online.
There shouldn't be a problem with adding these classes right now. They have registration dates that allow almost anyone to join them at any time. I joined CAE0617 in August and even though it says the class date range is December 47th, I completed it last week and already got the certificate. 

Oct 11, '12On the chart, it stated that they want a general ed math (area 5) as part of the prereq for the new admits. What math course are they speaking of? Is it any credited math course or is there a particular math course they are speaking of? I don't know, so can someone help me with this question? Thanks and congrats.

Oct 11, '12Quote from Larimar7What math class did you take? Have taken calculus and other math class in the past; and since I did not know what general ed math (area 5) meant I ended up registering for college algebra. If their willing to take my other math courses, I will drop college algebra so it doesn't affect my GPA. It is so difficult to get in contact with some at the health science department to get some questions answered. Thanks.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 prereqs, 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....

Oct 12, '12Quote from Juliansmom2011If you start in January 2013, you don't have to take any math as a pre req. If you are planning to start later, you have to take MAC1105. If you didn't take any math before, you need to take PERT placement test to determine how many math classes you need (it might be more than one).On the chart, it stated that they want a general ed math (area 5) as part of the prereq for the new admits.

Oct 12, '12Quote from NeudiaThat is not necessarily true for everyone. Some people had to have MAC completed before they applied for January. It is posted on the web:If you start in January 2013, you don't have to take any math as a pre req. If you are planning to start later, you have to take MAC1105. If you didn't take any math before, you need to take PERT placement test to determine how many math classes you need (it might be more than one).

Nursing applicants who have not broken catalog who are admitted for the January and May 2013 cohorts will not need to meet general education math requirement (area 5) and Microbiology (MCB2010&L) requirement.
CHM1032 will remain a required prerequisite.
Students that are NEW or ReEntry to the college:
Minimum GPA of 3.0 in the following prerequisite courses:
ENC1101, BSC 2085, BSC 2085L, BSC 2086, BSC 2086L, *including a general education math course (Area 5) and MCB2010 Microbiology, and MCB2010L (Chemistry is a prerequisite to MCB2010). Students must earn a grade of C or better in all prerequisite courses to be eligible to apply. HCP 0001 and A2 HESI Test are required.
If there are questions about what classes we should be taking, I think its best to see an advisor, preferably a health science advisor. That way we don't confuse each other since everyone's situation and academic journey is unique.
The math requirement is college algebra (MAC1105) or higher .Last edit by benincasa on Oct 12, '12 : Reason: missing info 
Oct 12, '12I agree with everyone seeing a advisor!!! Its hard to wait until the meeting in nov.
Looking at my 'degree audit' on mybc with my transfer transcripts they used my calc (MAC2233) and organic chemistry 2(CHM2211) instead of chm1032 and mac1105, I think because they are higher courses then req they took them with no problem....but thats just my case, yours might be different.
Is anyone taking out a loan for the program through BC?? Im starting to gather info on itLast edit by wwick13 on Oct 12, '12 : Reason: left out part

I usually have to go in person to talk to someone, or make a appointment.Over the phone they barely help. Its annoying I know but its worth the piece of mind. 
Oct 12, '12For those who have been accepted for Jan. 2013:
I need help! I can't attend the meeting on Nov. 2 because I will be out of town. I desperately need someone to PLEASE update me on the meeting upon my return on Nov. 5 or any day after that. I'm a baker, so I'm willing to bake you cupcakes in exchange for the information at any local Starbucks! I'll even buy you coffee!!! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE!!! I'm desperate. Email me at eddith80@hotmail.com.
Thank you kindly!!!!!!!! 
Oct 12, '12Where did you read that we must take CAE0617? According to BC's prereqs admission criteria sheet (http://www.broward.edu/admissions/Do...ements2013.pdf) the Prevention of Medical Errors is HSC0692. I'm super confused! :/
