I am starting this thread for anyone who wants to talk about the nursing program and has any questions, or advice about getting into the program for this fall 2017. The deadline is June 1st. I am doing the CNA program right now to get an extra point on the point system for the application, and last term I also completed the Critical thinking of nursing class to get another extra point. I am really nervous I am praying to get in this term as I'm sure many of you are too. The acceptance scores for the past two terms was: 23.46 points for fall 2016, and 23.28 for spring 2017. Also I found this next score online on all nurses, I hope it is accurate, 2015 fall was 24.14. Anyways Good luck to everyone!! let me know when you guys start on our application everyone do not forget to attend an info session and if it has been over a year since you attended one you MUST attend another!! the next one is JANUARY 25TH WEDNESDAY AT 4PM. You can go to the school website and type in nursing application and the room number will be on there for the meeting location, no you do not have to RSVP you only have to show up on time there are only A LIMITED amount of seats available.

I'm also hoping to start Fall 2017, my situation is a little different I'm an Lpn going for the transition program, but in general I know the entire process is very nerve-racking. Thanks for starting this thread!

I'm applying for fall 2017 also but maybe for the Belle Glade campus. I didn't get into Lake Worth spring term, I had 22.16 points. I'm retaking the Hesi so hopefully I'll get an higher score to bump my points up.

Hey! I'm also applying for Fall 2017. I just completed pharmacology yesterday and I have all of my pre and co req's..
I have 25.86 points so I'm hoping I'll be good to go. I did the Hesi a few months ago and got an 89 although I only got an 80 for the math section. I'm wondering whether I should re take the math section to be sure..

No I think you are a shoe in you will for sure get in. I think anyone with a 24.5 or higher is more than fine. I have a 24.04 and am freaking out just a little...

Hi I'm new here I would love for someone to give me more information or what direction I need to go in. I'm currently enrolled into Keiser University taking up my pre reqs which are English literature, human anatomy 1/2, introduction to computers, lifespan development, college English comp, microbiology, intro to psychology,in and intermediate algebra. What other courses do palm beach state college required for me to have. The reason I'm looking to get into another school is because I'm finishing my pre-Req in August and their next start date is not until next year August 2018. Also they require for you to take the tease test but Palm Beach County would like for you to take the Hessey I'm scheduled to take my teas this Saturday, should I wait it out and just wait until I get into Palm Beach State College and take theirs hesi? Idk I'm confused. Also I see everyone talking about a point system with Palm Beach State College what is that about? Sorry for all my questions I just really want some clarity thank you and advance

Does anyone have any idea on when the start date would be in August? And also I turned in my application sometime in April but my points still hasn't been uploaded, its a bit frustrating. Has anyone submitted their application as of yet ?

I believe the start date is 23rd August. A little later than regular fall classes
