They pretty much take their own students. I had taken most of my pre-reqs at U of H and took an A&P course at HBU because they were offering it sooner because they are on the quarter system. I also tried to get into their nursing program in the meanwhile. You have to take a test that they offer and make a certain score on that before you can even apply, if I remember correctly. It had some writing on there, that's all I remember.

When I was applying a couple of years ago, they were only taking 30 students for the BSN program. I didn't get in. I had a higher GPA than someone who got accepted into the program but she had taken almost all of her pre-reqs there. HBU is a private university, which equals super expensive tuition. All the nursing lady told me was to take some religion courses in the meanwhile that they require for graduation and reapply. Screw that. They just want me to stay there longer and take courses I don't need anywhere else and then, I don't know if I'd be able to get in or not because I didn't take most of my other classes there. I believe you have to take a New and Old Testament class and have a certain number of convocation points in order to graduate.

I met a recent graduate of HBU and she could not bad mouth the school enough, and she had a full scholarship there! She was very dissatisfied with the BSN program. I don't know the specifics because I kind of tuned her out because she was complaining for so long.

Don't get me wrong, while I was there, it was great. The professors are nice, and the atmosphere is totally different from what I had experienced at U of H. It's also crazy expensive. Not worth it to me. I also got the impression that they take whoever has given them the most money. I had a 3 something for my GPA and the girl that got accepted had something in the upper 2 range. That's just my opinion and experience. I think it would be hard for someone that took their pre-reqs and get accepted to their program, IMO. It never hurts to try though!

Hi, Thank you for the info...Im gonna give it a try...no garranty that I would even be excepted and will probably just finish out my schooling at the local college.
