    Jackie, it's been over a month since pinning and I still cannot believe I survived the program. Haha. You are going to do awesome in 220 and 212.

    I'm starting BRCC in the fall to finish up my 16 hours of pre reqs (I already have a few from Slu). I'm planning on applying to the nursing program in January but I was told by one of the advisors that there was absolutely no way I would be accepted into the program with just my 16 hours of pre reqs. After the fall semester I will be done with all of my pre reqs except for bio 230 (which I plan to take in the spring because I have to complete bio 120 first).
    I'm just super confused I'm just trying to figure out if anyone on here has gotten in with just the 16 hours of pre reqs!! So I hope to get some advice from someone!

    One thing I forgot to mention, the advisor told me that in order to have a chance to get in I needed to finish all of my general education before I even think about applying to nursing school. So is this true? I know that it says you only need the 16 hours on the website and I'm sure you'd have an advantadge by having all of the general education completed, but what are my chances of getting in with just those 16 hours?

    I think they have done surveys with the graduates and the more general education classes you have completed (especially A&P2 and micro), the more likely you are to finish the program in four semesters.

    It is possible to get in with only the 16...but I would also try to complete A&P2, micro, and stats. The art/humanities class and English 102 could probably be put off without a problem.

    I have already completed arts, humanities and english 101& 102. I just have to work on my math, psyc and bio in the fall. I wanted to take bio 230 this fall, but i need 120 first. So it will be impossible for me to take A&P2, micro and stats before I apply this January unfortunately. Do you know of any nursing students that were in your class that only completed the 16 hours to get in?

    so I went to brcc and finally got to talk to the dean of nursing!!! it was an exciting but depressing moment. I asked her to review my grades and give me her thoughts of the chances of me getting in. She smiled gave me back my transcript and congratulated me on getting all As in my pre-req. then she said this " Although you did exceptionally well on your prereqs im going to be honest, when you apply in January your not going to get in because you haven't taken any of your classes at brcc. I hate to have to tell you to retake all of your classes but if you truly want to get in the first go round, I would recommend you taking the classes again, you should have no problem with this because you have taken them successfully at slu with all As but I will have you know if you take the classes here and get lower than an A we will use that because we take the last grade" and I almost cried because God knows I did not want to take those classes over again. Especially ap. She pulled out the list from this year and actually showed me who got accepted and there were only 2 people out of the 50 that got accepted that didn't take all of their classes at brcc but they took one class there and got 100 on the entrance exam. So I asked for her advice. She said "If you really want to get in I can guarantee you that if you retake those 5 reqs at BRCC with a 3.8 and score high on the entrance exam,which is fairly easy, you will definitely get in. Its a numbers game, we give pts for g.p.a entrance score, and 2 points for every class taken at brcc" I shook her hand and she wish me luck! so I def changed my schedule and am retaking those As AGAIN! but it feels good because I know ill get As again in them and I can pretty much consider myself accepted right after i apply in jan! So to to all the pre-nursing students, given the information I was given from the dean, stay focused, make good grades and try to take all your pre-reqs at brcc!!!!
    Good luck to you all!!

    Hi Everyone!

    I just have a couple questions for the those who have already been accepted.

    1.) Did you complete all of your prereqs at BRCC (since that seems to be such a big deal)?

    2.) Did you already have any other degree?

    Congratulations to all of you ladies who have already been accepted! Good luck to everyone else!

    MsLeana,

    I will be beginning in the fall. (but I'm not a lady!!)

    Yes, I did take all the prereqs at BRCC. I know of students who I had hoped would get in that clearly did not because of the points lost in not taking BRCC's courses. It does seems to carry significant weight.

    I do not have any other degrees. I had extensive coursework toward another degree but decided to "ignore" all of it and start fresh at BRCC.

    Now is the perfect time to start for 2012 admissions. You have two full semesters in which you could probably complete not only prereqs but some of the tougher coursework (Microbiology, A&P 2) if you really put your mind to it.

    Best of luck to you!

    That's exactly why I am at Southeastern. There was no way I was going to retake all those classes.
