FIU Nursing program

  1. I applied for the fall of 2012 for florida International University and am just anxiously waiting for the answer if i got in. I have a 4.0 gpa, did some volunteer hours, my video came out alright :/ and pretty much passed my HESI so there's a good chance I might get in, if there is anyone out there that has done the program and or is currently in it could shed some light on how the program is. Also, advice if any on preparing before entering the program. Any information would be appreciated!

    Hello all,

    I also applied for FIU's fall 2012 nursing program. I'm a bit worried since I only have a 3.3 gpa which might not be high enough, but I did some community service and my video essay was okay too. We'll see what happens. But I wish the best for everyone.

    Don't count yourself out of the competition yet lol not many people have it high, i went to miami dade first for my AA so that's why i was able to keep it high, but alot of people from my NUR class in FIU had a varety of gpa's and hopefully your video showed off your personaility because it's weighted also to be considered... so goodluck to you too

    Well for me the previous year i applied to miami dade's nursing RN program and did pretty bad on the TEAS but suprisingly got accepted probably due to the fact of my good gpa and that some people decline some of their spots, but i said no thinking it was better to get a BSN in nursing so i put all my eggs in this basket lol

    Hi I also applied to FIUs program for this fall and am anxiously waiting for a response. When did you call? I was planning on calling today. I really thought we would have an answer by now. Last year students found out in 3 weeks. I guess watching all the videos is taking them longer. Does anyone know how many students applied??

    I called earlier this week and yes they are taking really long! but i believe it must be the videos because this is the first year they are doing this, but yeah we should have known by like three weeks i remember them even saying it but there must have been lots of applications :uhoh21:

    Sad to say, no. I feel bad for not doing so - because I don't want to put all my eggs in one basket. But, every program seems to want their set of extra "required" classes. It's like, I don't want to waste time and money on classes for a college I might not end up going to if accepted at FIU! I know that runs the risk of then putting too much hope in getting into the one place, but I don't know. If I'm not accepted, I'll just move onto the next step... How about you?
