    It depends on the descriptions of the courses you've taken and if they match up with the descriptions of MDC's courses. For the most part, yes, credits transfer.

    As long as the school is an accredited school, there should be no problem. Univ of Phoenix type schools are a no go.

    Hello all,

    I've been sitting here for the past hour or so reading everyone's comments regarding the anticipation of receiving an acceptance letter to the excitement of being accepted. I am currently a student at the Homestead Campus doing my pre reqs for the nursing program. Initially, I had plans to do my pre reqs at Dade and apply to Nova, after considering that I'm a mom and the best option is to get my associates then do a bridge program online for my bachelors, I've decided to stick with Dade. With that being said, I have some credits that I do not need and am basically starting from scratch. as of right now, my GPA is 3.7 (just about). I'm taking Mat1033 now and will begin my sciences next semester. I am hoping to get into (when the time comes) the generic program at homestead. Does anyone know how they determine which campus you go to? Do you request that? Also, any tips or suggestions or recommendations for teachers would be GREATLY appreciated. Again, Congrats to everyone who was accepted and or has already started.

    This school is a major mess. From registration to financial aid to the actual education. Be prepared to overcome lots of unnecessary hurdles. Good luck.

    Uh oh. lol Thank you for the heads up! I want to avoid putting myself in a financial hole by attending Nova or Barry. Have you heard anything about the Key's college program? I've done some research but cant find anything solid.

    MDC is the best nursing school in Miami. They have the best passing rate in the Nclex. I wouldn't recommend other school if you want to be a good nurse. Also, employers prefer MDC graduates to those from other schools. I know the school is not perfect & I've being frustrated myself several times, but there's no doubt in my mind that I chose the best nursing school out there.
    Jchirino, we have the same last name. good luck. I'm in my last semester of nursing school. If u have any question feel free to email me.
    & good luck to all of u guys. Nurses rock!!!!

    You request the campus, ie homestead campus. however, know that the fewer you request the less chance of being accepted. I can STRONGLY recommend doing the generic and NOT accelerated. Generic is already tons of work.

    Hello everybody, I'm just starting to look information about nursing schools. I'd like to know which one school is the best MDC o BCC?
    How length is each program including pre requisites? How about language requirement? (English is my second language, sorry for my writing) :/ Is the accelerated option so difficult?
    I really appreciate if somebody answer me.
    Thanks a lot
