    I attended Barry U back in the mid 90s, pursuing a marketing degree that I never used . Its a good school (with an excellent reputation in south FL) but also a VERY expensive one.

    I will attend Barry University in North Miami. So far I've heard great reviews about them. If anyone has heard or attended this school let me know...
    I wanna hear about other schools as well! Maybe we might end working alongside each other one day

    Hi AngelaRN2B! Did you happen to be admitted to the program? I notice your post was from last September which is when I too was taking my NLN and making formal application to PBCC's program. I'll be returning for my second semester in August. Am wondering if I know you...

    It is Palm Beach Community College located in Lake Worth. I have already taken pharm last term ahead of schedule. This term I have Clinicals at Palm Beach Medical Center, Nursing 1, skills lab, and a wellness class. Classes start next Wednesday.
    I may try to get into PBCC's LPN program..or do you think its better to wait for the RN program in the Spring? Is there anything else you suggest about the school? I hear the passing rate is 100%

    Here's the link for the passing rates of all LPN and RN schools in Florida (Universities, Community Colleges, Hospitals, and Secondary Schools) : http://www.doh.state.fl.us/Mqa/nursi..._June_2003.pdf

    PBCC has no waiting list. Admission is based on preadmission test scores, GPA and other factors that translate into points as you probably know by now. I would suggest that you check to see what the point cutoff was for the last class admitted. If you think there is any way you can come close or beat that number, go for the RN program in the spring if RN is what you want to do. The one factor that is really hard to predict is the NLN score. It covers science, math and communications. If you're good on two of the three subjects and perform well on tests, you might just do quite well.

    Good luck.
