Hi all, 

Does anyone know when we should expect decisions to come out since the October start is new?

Hi! I am the only one who thought that the mini-term was to take place in December!? October 21st start, oh my! Anyway, I was told that we are supposed to hear back by September, but I really hope it's earlier! Can't wait to hear!!

It starts early this year in October. Have you applied already?

Yes! Just submitted my application earlier this week. You?

I was told that they will not review applications at all until the period closes July 15th, and we should hear back by September. I can't wait! 😝

Sure!

It has definitely been a different experience from my first degree (Biology). Balancing 19 credits is a whole 'nother mission, but I felt like starting to work from Day 1 (writing down every single due date on my planner) allowed me to stay on top of stuff.

I don't recall having crammed for any exam last semester (Spring), because that's not really how nursing school works, you have to learn a little each day if you want to take something from the whole experience. Something that was very new to me was the grading system since you need an average of 93% and above to get an A. I was initially very intimated by this--but it can be done! 

With regards to having a job, I personally had to stop working in order to solely focus on this year and I still think that it was the best decision for me. However, some people in the program still have a part-time job and some are parents, so everyone's story is completely different.

You have to study weekends and make a lot of sacrifices, but I recommend having at least 1 day out of the week to set the studies aside and enjoy some social time and unwind, or you will burn out. 

Always try to be one step ahead of the game so nothing surprises you. I would recommend at least watching Youtube videos to familiarize yourself with some of the major medications, or at least the ones with easy-to-remember mnemonics. This will help you with pharm AND make you stand out in clinicals. 

Another thing, it takes a little bit of time to get used to the format of nursing questions, don't let it discourage you and just keep practicing and practicing. 

I wish every one of you the best of luck and I hope to see you in orientation 🙂

I, too, am wondering about the schedule and the workload of these classes. I don't plan to work during the regular terms of the program, but wondering if working is possible during the Fall B mini session.

@Char_AOBSN thanks for the information and best of luck on your next steps in your nursing journey. 🙂 

Hello everyone! 

I'm also applying to the AOBSN at FIU. 

My stats:

3.76 undergrad, 4.0 prereq, 87.3% TEAS, 120 volunteer hours at a rehab center and recently started working as a CNA at a hospital. 

Only really want to go to FIU but open to possibilities and seeing where doors open for me. Need to take the HESI to apply to MDC and FAU. I think UM is too expensive. I can't justify the cost of going there.  

No in person interview?????? I hadn't heard this before reading this forum. Also wondering what the Oct 21 mini term will look like (and only just discovered the change from the Dec start through nursingCAS). Hoping I can continue to work during that time. We will see. 

Good luck to us all!

Hi guys ! So I have my bachelors in biological sciences and I finished with a 3.5, and my prerequisites I have probably a 3.9, but I took the TEAS and got an 86, so I’m planning on retaking it on Friday, but at the same time I’m terrified I’ll get a lower score and just start freakin out for the next few months. Any advice or words of encouragement please ? Thank you !!!
