- 0Jan 19, '11 by Shamanailooking at the website i don't see the labs as part of the gpa calculation... it merely says A&P, micro, and chem. On the other pg that includes all pre reqs for the degree it explicitly includes the lab... so does that mean for gpa purposes lab isn't included... and what are the average TEAS scores? I got an 80% on mine.
- 0Sep 27, '12 by levzahav9I'm actually considering this school even though it's pretty pricey, just because my sister went to South at WPB (they call it Royal Palm Beach now) and she loved it. It's an 18-month program because of the quarter system, and there is one class they have as a pre-req that I wasn't able to find at BC or FAU which is Pathophysiology. They offer this one class at FAU but only once you're in the nursing program, otherwise it's not available. This one class is the reason why I'm going to their school for the last fall quarter. I'll also be taking Micro and Nutrition there as well.
Grand total for their program comes out to about $50K, so loans are kind of a given unless you are lucky enough to have someone donate to the cause lol. I think it's a good deal considering schools like UM and Barry U, which cost a lot more. Nova is about $10k less.
When it comes to the attention you get, from my personal experience thus far, it's all been stellar. It's a tiny campus (the director told us in Orientation today that there are 1,100 students enrolled for this last quarter) so the classes are smaller. They're finishing up a brand new building just for nursing so the facilities will be brand new. As far as private schools go, I think I will def. choose this one!
