nursing schools in florida

  1. 0
    does anyone know if nursing schools in florida accept anything aside from the prereq GPA in determining admission? i am afraid my "C" in economics and other un-related classes will screw me over with the state schools here...

    also, i got a "D" in sociology and a "C" in stats my freshman year of college because i was going through the whole "party in college" thing.. should i retake these classes?

    how hard is it to get into USF? UCF? UF? FSU? FIU? UNF? MIAMI?.. i'm trying to get a BSN

    I can only speak for UCF, as I am currently getting my BSN there (2nd degree). UCF does consider your overall undergrad GPA, but they especially focus on how well you did in your prereqs. There are about 30 hours worth of prereqs at UCF and both sociology and statistics are included. If your other prereq grades are in low B to C land, I would consider taking them over, but that's entirely up to you. If you have an otherwise pretty good GPA (>3.5), it may not be a big issue. In my opinion, Statistics, A&P, Micro and Chem are the top 4 worth trying to get the best grade possible. UCF is of the opinion that past performance is indicative of future performance. I have heard that the generic program receives upwards of 400 applications for roughly 90-100 spots. Since the accelerated program just started this past May, I'm not sure how many applications they received. We do have about 30 students in the program though. If you have other questions about UCF, you can pm me and I'd be happy to answer them as best I can.

    Maybe try a private college like University of Tampa, but I think they all require at least a B in the prerequisites (A&P, Micro, Chemistry). Talk to the advisors at the schools. They'll tell you what you need.

    Each school is different. Most are very competitive. I would think that all require that someone who is applying meet at least the minimum GPA, some require only a 2.0 to 2.5. Contact the school that you are interested in and check with their program advisor. Good luck!
