    Pro: don't have to wait like VCC
    Cons: decent competition from what I heard. There is a chance you might not get in

    VCC's concurrent just started this semester. You cannot apply for it, they will forward your name and transcript to UCF Nursing for consideration. You must have all the UCF prerequs completed by the time you apply to VCC. They will notify you via your Atlas account if you are selected to be a part of the concurrent program. Grades are important here even though it isn't for VCC's generic track.

    Actually the Concurrent program for Valencia/UCF does not start until August 2011. You cannot apply for the first class, you have to be recommended by VCC or invited by UCF. I met with them about it and pretty much said that anything below 3.5 GPA is not going to fly and a decent TEAS score. They will have 30 students for their first class.
