    Thanks for the reminder!

    Hey everyone, I started a group on FB so we can get to know each other. It's a great way to ask each other questions and advice on financial aid, where to live (and more importantly, where NOT to live) and anything else. Just go to the page and request to join and I'll confirm ASAP. I know many of your are coming from different parts of the US, while some of us are quite familiar with Miami. I made it a closed group to protect our privacy!

    The name of the group is: University of Miami (Accelerated BSN Summer 2011 Cohort)

    See you all soon!

    Hi Grace,

    How are you?

    I have a question. I read somewhere that we need to pay for a background check, but I have not received any information regarding to this matter. I just received some information regarding a second deposit to be paid by February 28th. Do you have any information about it?

    Thank you very much!

    Stephanie, no I haven't taken the nclex yet...I didn't think we had to especially since most of us don't have nursing backgrounds?

    Also, just so everyone knows, the name of the FB group has changed. Please look for the group named: University of Miami Nursing School ABSN program (Summer 2011 Cohort)

    Hey y'all!

    I have been accepted too and am currently debating what to do. So I am wondering if any more current or former ABSN students at UM can speak about their experiences in the program? Thanks !

    you cannot sit for the nclex examination until you complete the program..nclex is the exam for your state licensing to practice.....


    iridium, on fb there is a group for the may 2010 accepted students you can request to join, they still all talk and post about their experiences so its a good place to go. group name is something like university of miami Accelerated BSN May 2010 cohort

    also, for you guys that have been accepted. congrats!!! if you dont mind me asking when did you guys send in your applications?

    I am going to the University of Miami on Monday to pay the $500 deposit. As per the fingerprints and the drug screening, I just received the forms today. I called and they said that as far as I started the process, I will be fine. I just want to make sure that I will not lose my spot because the process with the fingerprints is not complete. does anybody have the same situation?

    Thanks!
