    its so funny to hear you downgrade the prof's of bmcc i feel the same way about them except for a few. But still we are one of the most competitive schools and most difficult to get into well for the nursing program at least.

    ms drea! a lot of red tape is what ur saying right? competitive?? i hope one day u get to meet other assosociate degree nursing students...say bronx cc, esp a lot of them do their clinicals in lincoln hosp... i could not believe how much more stuff they know. see if u can measure up to them and tell me again if u still feel bmcc is a 'competitive' school. there is no comparing us to them. its a shame. we are supposed to be the better school, a lot of the students are more privileged (correct me please if im wrong). i believe its not the quality of the students. but they are well taught and thats all that matters.

    I was at the meeting last wednesday and I wasnt please with what Mr. (cant mention his name)...he said that there is no waiting list BUT!, if your GPA for your pre-req is low, then you will have to keep reaplying for the program every semester until you get accepted. Isnt that still waiting?

    There was a woman there that claimed that she has 3.5GPA and has been reapplying for the nursing program since 2001!!!!! Its still waiting. I have decided that I am just going to go for my bachelors in science and stay as a Medical Assistant. I can still make a good paycheck and have a great life.

    well i cant really say anything about bcc because i never got a chance to speak to any one who attended. But i mean competition as in its difficult to get into their program. If you've ever looked into it bmcc's nursing program has 70 seats mean while every other school has about 40! i guess its the location of the school.

    Just in case anyone reads this very old link - I'm in the nursing program at BMCC and am disgusted with it. I never feel like I am being taught, just read to word-for-word from power points. Most of the professors are angry and annoyed, tired and do not put forth a serious amount of effort. One semester our class was literally told that we would all fail. The clinical situations are atrocious and I actually gave meds to patients a total of 5 times in 4 semesters. The school is way behind on womens lib issues and students in their 40s are treated like children. I would never encourage anyone to attend this program.

    i graduate from bmcc dec 2004 since it was just last winter
    its competitive to get into the program. can you heard a 3.77 gpa to get in? it's insane. join a study group for support because there's no on in your family that knows what you are going through like your classmates. it's hard but people had graduate from that program. stay strong.

    honestly it's not about how hard the program is. The content all makes sense as long as the power points are actually legible (most are incomplete sentances and even some wrong info). I have a ton of support from other students and have study groups as well. I have no children, am not married and do not work. The problem is the education system at that school and specifically within that program.

    I think I know who you're referring to!!! They are great!!! Actually m. is, but o. is kind of a clutz, and sarcasstic at times.:spin: But so far this semester is going well.
