Hi Guys,

I'm looking to get some reviews on the Broward College Nursing program. I am interested in applying to the program for Fall 2019. However, I've heard mixed reviews on the program. Anyone here completed the programs and can drop any pointers?

Hi! I graduated December 2018 and took my NCLEX in February (& passed!). The BC nursing program is VERY challenging but it prepares you for the challenges you will face as a nurse. Prior to applying, I had heard the horror stories & knew students that had failed out. This is an accelerated program and demands so much from you. You need to be prepared to invest your time and energy into this. With that said, IT IS doable. There were single mothers in program, students that worked a full time job, and so on. I worked throughout the program. 

 

YOU can do this. Do not let other people’s experiences shape your own. You can’t retreat at the first sign of danger and expect to reach the finish line. This is hard work but if you put in the hours, create a support system with classmates, and remain motivated... you will see this through. The first semester is the heaviest load of classes.

 

Some TIPS: Create healthy study habits. If you are someone that has gone unscathed with cramming before exams, this nursing program will discipline you and kick your butt into shape. Stay up to date with the reading and read ahead prior to class. You will need to be familiar with the material to be able to ask the appropriate questions. Watch videos that help explain the information. Do practice questions. Build a network— a small study group that is productive and ON TASK without gossip. It helps to be reviewing material you read so that in a group setting, you pose questions and discuss concepts you’re familiar with. You will fail an exam. You will be disappointed and distraught. And that’s OKAY. Just pick yourself up. 

 

Broward College nursing students are highly regarded by hospitals. If anyone has questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me. This program is not a competition of who is the most intelligent or even most skilled.... it’s about resilience and remaining motivated. 

 

Good luck to everyone! 

❣️

I also graduated from Broward College in May 2015. It was very challenging however, I passed my NCLEX the first time and I was better prepared for the world of nursing once I started working bedside.  If you want to be a nurse you need to be 100% dedicated and this program expects 100% of your dedication. Therefore, in my opinion helps you prepare yourself. Best of luck

Hi! I just applied for the fall 2019. I passed the Hesi with a 93% and my gpa for the program is 3.4. I'm very nervous because of some of the stories I've heard. Any comments?

Mortui vivos docent your post really spoke to me today I was distraught between choosing schools because of the horror stories I’ve heard as well about broward. I’m a mom of 3 so I automatically ruled it out due to finances I’m rethinking it and your pose really spoke to my heart. Thank you!!

Does anyone have any recommendations about the RN - BSN program at Broward? Is it like the RN program or easier? I’d like to work while earning my BSN

I don't know much about it, but many RN-BSN programs are made for working nurses.  The ones I am looking into are FIU and FAU.  I would make an appt to talk to advisor about it!
