Yeah, I'm not sure what that's all about. If she's just coming out of high school, FIU would have her on file as studying Pre-Nursing. Once she completes all her pre-reqs, she would have to apply seperately to the nursing college. For example, I had to have all my pre-reqs done by the spring term of this year to apply for the fall '12 term. The only exceptions are for the COM and NUR classes that are required - they can be taken in summer A. I submitted my application packet two weeks ago and will find out their decision next month. At that point (if accepted), they would change my status from Pre-Nursing to just Nursing.
I know it's been a while since you posted this, but let us know how everything worked out!
