Hi LeAnn! I'm currently attending BRCC to finish up my pre-requs. The nursing dept will have an information meeting for those interested. Call the school at 225-216-8000 or www.mybrcc.edu for info. The only thing I know about the nursing program is what you stated. I met with an advisor and she wanted me to re-take Anat, Physio, and Micro because I had a "B" in those classes. Whatever. The college itself doesn't seem to be very organized.

This semester they lost my transcripts :angryfireso I registered as a "provisional student". No problem. I'm taking the 3 classes I need and made arrangements for my transcripts to be sent again. Got online today to register for spring semester and can't.....they SAY they never recieved my transcripts. :idea: I've decided to do another semester at BRCC (if I ever get registered) and then transfer to Southeastern.

Good luck!

thanks for that information, I am going to call them today when I get off work and schedule an appoinment.

I am tired of being in the dark.

Thanks,

LeAnn

LeAnn,

Did you get a chance to speak with someone from BRCC? Do you have anymore info to share with us? Thanks.

hello hospice nurse,

as far as i know, the only biology class that's part of the pre-requisites is a&p i. i wonder why the advisor would have you retake a&p ii and micro if you have b's in them. does brcc look at other grades too in making their selection for admission?

They said grades play a big role in the selection process. I've decided to apply to Southeastern for summer semester with the bridge program. What are your plans?

I attend SU and to all that are still looking for info about brcc there is an entrance exam that requires basic math and reading comprehension skills. They only do gpa based on pre-reqs if you have taken a lot of classes. 2.8 is the required gpa and 75 is the minimum score on the entrance exam.:uhoh3: anxious but awaiting a chance to finally get into any nursing school.

I've actually went to BRCC for 2 1/2 years.. I was thinking of applying to their nursing program, but they were having all kinds of problems with my transcripts from LSU.. Even after being there for 2 1/2 years, they still never entered in my transcript of all the courses that I took at LSU, which probably totals to like 80-sumin credit hours.. Without my transcript being entered in the system, there is no "proof" that the courses that were required for me to take are already out the way. They are seriously so unorganize at the school, but I will say one thing. The teachers there are pretty good to me. If you're willing to learn, they're willing to teach. Don't get me wrong though, there are a few teachers that don't know waht they're talking about. I ended up applying to The Baton Rouge General's instead. Ironically though, I'm actually pretty familiar with the head of Enrollment Services at BRCC because she is a regular customer at my workplace... heheh.. she never mailed my transcript to BRGSON like I had requested either.. lolz.. oh welpx, all is good.. :p.. she did comment at one point in time that the nursing program at BRCC is tough.. so I don't know..

well i surely hope that only the pre-requisite courses and hesi scores are considered in the admission process. i read on their website that they also take how many courses you've completed at brcc into consideration. i haven't taken any courses at brcc. i'm going to try to score as high as possible on the hesi. my pre-requisite gpa is a 3.43, so i hope it's competitive enough to get into the program if my hesi scores are high. i already have a bachelor's degree and would like to attend an accelerated program, but i can't afford to not work. i'm also going to apply to a few adn programs in houston. good luck with your endeavors.

is anyone applying to brcc for fall 2008? i turned in all of my paperwork. i'm just waiting to take the hesi exam in april. i already took the hesi at another college a week ago, but brcc has a new rule that you have to take the hesi at their college.

I took the HESI last week and did well. I have to test out of fundamentals on Tuesday. After that is successfully completed, I'll have to test out of adult nsg 1.....THEN the interview.

Hospice Nurse LPN are you doing the LPN-RN bridge program? I've applied to the basic track.

Yes, I have applied for the bridge program. If I successfully pass both fundamentals and adult 1, I get to interview and then take mental health nsg over the summer in order to join the rest of the class in the fall. :specs:

i wish you the best of luck in getting into the program! everything will work out for you.

They are accredited/approved by the state, but they can't get nationally accredited until the first class graduated in May 2009!
