I start in Jan. 2009 i'n excited and nervous :no:at the same time .It's hard finding a thread with someone who recently been in the program which makes me even more nervous. So how do you feel about starting in the spring?

Hi Nurismydream,

I am also excited and nervous.:eek: It sure is hard to find a recent thread but I ran into a person on campus that is in the program. She started this past January and she said the first semester isn't too bad. The second semester gets harder. But I think we will be ok, we just have to be organized and study, study, study.....

Where did you do your pre reqs? I did mine at MDC. Maybe we will have some classes together. I will most likely see you at orientation.

Good Luck!:)

I also apply for the accelerated program at Barry. I did all my pre reqs at MDC. I'm taking MCB lab and statistic this semester. Did you get accepted to the program? They will tell me if i got accepted in september. What was your GPA when you applied for Barry. I have a 3.5 now

Hi Barbajo06,

Yes, I have been accepted to the program. When did you apply and who is your admissions counselor at Barry? I applied in March. My GPA was 3.86, but I know people that has been accepted with 3.0 and 3.2 GPAs. What campus are you taking MCB lab and statistics?

Good Luck!

I pray that I/we can handle it. I took my pre-reqs at FAU. Speaking of orientation is that what the school considers sTART to be or does the NUR have one of its own?

Right back at you

I applied between july and august, don't remember. My counselor is Sarah Ganbrill. I'm taking statistic at Wolfson and MCB lab at north. By the way you have a great GPA. I wanted to have a 3.7 but that stupid microbiology lecture killed me, I had a C.

Hi nurismydream,

The SON has its own orientation that is 1 credit and we take a diagnostic test during the 2 day orientation.

Hi barbajo06,

Who is your professor for MCB lab? I had Dr. Siu and he was awesome!

Thanks, and a 3.5 is an excellent GPA! :bow:

A diagnostic test y?..wow i was not aware of that at all now i really don't now how to feel...are you serious?..ok im going to start freaking out:confused:

Hey Doralmom

Wow, I'm taking him for lab too. He's goood so far. How did you study for his quizes and unknown exam?

By the way when are you graduating, if you already graduated how did it feel to be in the honors rows cause i want that. Did you apply to mdc-medical campus for nursing too?

My transcript say A.S cause i apply at Barry and MDC-Medical campus. If iI get accepted at Barry , I'll change it to A.A

The transcript i sent to Barry did not include the classes i'm taking this semester, what do you think I should do?

Hi nurismydream,

Don't freak out. I think it is only a writing test, maybe vocab and basic math, and a HIPPA test. They send you the material to read on HIPPA via Blackboard before orientation.

We'll be fine.

Hi Barbajo06,

For his quizzes, I just studied his lab and review notes on his web page. I also wrote everything down he put on the board because he doesn't use the lab book at all. The unknown was easy just make sure you understand what you're doing for the experiments. I was always the last one to leave class but it paid off because I got the highest score on the final in my class and an A in the class. Make sure you know how to do a perfect gram stain because if that's wrong everything else is wrong. He gives a flow chart that makes it easy to understand the first unknown.

I graduated this past summer with my AA, and it felt good to see Associate in Arts degree with highest honors on my transcript. My major was also for AS but once you complete all of the required classes for AA it automatically will award you the AA because I never changed my mine.

I didn't apply to MDC nursing program because I figured for the same amount of time(4 semesters) why not go for the BSN. Then it came down to Barry and FIU. I chose Barry over FIU because I am able to start in the Spring of '09 instead of summer '09 and Barry gave me a more signifcant amount of free money.

When you sent your transcripts, were you regiestered for classes? If so, the classes will appear on your transcripts that were sent to Barry. If not, you should contact your admissions counselor at Barry and also send an updated transcript.

Good Luck!:up:

wow looks like we have a lot in common. I love graduating with honors, I even graduated in high school with honors.

I also wanted to apply at FIU but they start in the summer. I really want to go to Barry because it only takes one year to get your Bachelor instead of spending two year at MDC-Medical campus to get an A.S then go to aa univerity to get a bachelor. no way!

I was thinking about sending another transcript but i don't know if it's too late to send it cause they will send the letter of acceptance to the program this month.

Hi barbajo06,

You will still have to send an updated transcript to Barry once you get your grades for this semester.

Did you take a religion class at MDC? For Barry you need a theology,biomedical ethics. In order to graduate from Barry you need to have at least 48 upper lever credits(300/3000 level) 40 of them nursing credis, so you would have to take maybe 3 upper divison classes, which could include theology, biomedical ethics, and a humanities/art (if you haven't taken these courses at MDC).

My admissiosns couselor didn't tell me I had to take 3 upper divison classes, I was only informed of the biomedical ethics since MDC didn't offer this class because it is only taught at universities.

I kept calling my admissions counselor checking on my application status. She knew I was serious about Barry and she informed me of my acceptance the day it was improved(weeks befor I received my letter).

Have you been accepted to Barry, the university yet? Because you have to be accepted to Barry first before the application goes to the SON.
