New here - Please, I need advice!

  1. Hello,

    I'm new here and I found a lot of usefull informations in this forum.
    If there is someone from South Florida (Broward-Miami Dade) who is attending or attended Broward Community College (BCC) for RN, I would like to know more about enrolling in this program.
    I took the CPT test already(I applyed for summer term), and I was told to come back in April. How important are the scores of the CPT because I'm planning to retake it?
    Somebody has any ideea how many RN spots are available?
    There is a long waiting list?
    I heard that RN program is difficult.It would be easier to enroll in LPN first and then to continue with RN? (Any suggestions?)

    Thank you in advance,

    Originally I attended BCC some time ago. I took a couple of classes there before I transferred to Palm Beach CC. All the CPT does is determine your placement in math and english courses. If you score below a certain level, you have to take remedial high-school level courses which they offer at the college before you can take college level. It should have no bearing on whether or not you get into the BCC program when it comes time time for you to apply.

    Yes, the RN program is hard to get into. BCC has a waiting list I believe. I suggest you speak with a nursing advisor to get the real facts. I've found that the rumor mill at my school is pretty inaccurate at times.
