Well that means we are now relying only on spots people who were chosen first decline. . .

Unfortunately, xxdumaxx, I imagine you are correct.

Well I want to say congratulations to those who have already been accepted and good luck to those who are still waiting for a letter. I haven't receive a letter but I have receive acceptance from another school so the pressure is off. But you guys have been amazing through this whole process. I wish you success with FAU nursing program and any other school you decide to go to. :)

Congrats to everyone that made it into the program! Good for you guys :) Katherine I applied last year and got denied, but really wanted to go to FAU so I waited a whole year to apply again. My science GPA is 4.0 and I scored in the 99th percentile on the TEAS, sure that I would make the cut this time. I didn't even make the interview phase, so honestly I would look into other programs if you're worried about waiting a whole year. Now I feel way behind on my goals, when it is nearly impossible to get into this program :/ I just don't know what more they want if top scores aren't enough. Try to get some insight on how exactly they rank the applicants. There are other great nursing colleges in the S Fl region :) I heard PBSC gives a lot of hands-on training vs. book work. You just get an ASN but the ASN-BSN bridge is only a year I think :)

I have heard the same thing about PBSC, that was acctually my second choice. Gforge88 - did you complete all the pre- reqs? Did you have 60 credits? I cannot believe that you did not get in!!!!:no:

Hi everyone! My heart goes out to those of you who did not make it this year... I was in the same position last year and made the choice to wait it out. Because I was looking for as much information as I could get my hands on to make that decision I thought I would share a few things I picked up along the way. Because I know this is the info I wanted to know most from those who got in ... my scores were 3.9 GPA and 99th TEAS (ABSN program). I have heard good things about PBSC and not so good things about Broward College (that said Broward's requirements are a bit easier to meet especially in regards to pre-req expirations for second degree students... pbsc has a 10 year expiration and bc has none. Broward also has a hybrid option which allows for a lot of courses to be completed online... which is pretty cool! Broward was my back up plan.). For accelerated programs I hear Barry has an amazing program and it is a bit easier to get into. I was accepted there last year but it is expensive! The admissions team was great to work with and very helpful! There is however a Baptist Health scholarship program there similar to NSU which would definitely help the cost factor. You also have the option of doing your ASN at BC or PBSC and your RN to BSN transition at FAU so at the end of the day, you will end up with exactly the same degree as starting at FAU. I hope this is helpful to someone and wish you all the very best on your journey... remember nothing worth having ever comes easy :)

Congrats to everyone who was accepted. Unfortunately, I was not--despite my 99th percentile TEAS, 3.9 science GPA (just a B way back in undergrad in calculus 2 which was unfortunately used for the "college algebra" requirement). Maybe my BA in Sociology hurt me instead having it in a science/health field... but I didn't decide on nursing until after I completed my first degree. Luckily, I have been accepted to PBA and will be going that route, despite the expense.
