hmm, well i just checked there site and this what i saw.

requirements and selection policies

requirements for admission into the clinical nursing sequence (nur): all pre-clinical student records are complied by the pre-clinical coordinator and reviewed by the department's admissions/recruitment/review committee in order to determine eligibility for the clinical nursing sequence. students must meet the following criteria: a.

pass the act test in reading and writing, and the cuny test in mathematics. b.

complete the pre-clinical nursing sequence with a minimum gpa of 2.5;the lowest acceptable grade in pre-clinical nursing courses is" c". the department accepts cuny's policy in reference to the "f" and "c-" grade (policy adopted 9/1/90) for non-nursing courses. the "f" and "c-" policy does not apply to the nursing courses and the four pre-clinical nursing courses (eng 101, psy 100, mat 104, and bio 425).

source: cuny's "f" grade policy

(revised 9/1/94). effective spring 1995.so, pretty much you do need to complete some pre reqs. hope this helps.

I've heard the BMCC program is not only extremely popular, it is extremely competitive. Very GPA oriented. You will want to work towards getting an "A" in every prereq, plenty of other candidates are already doing the same.

hi, thaks for all the information. hey, is there any community college in new york city where i can take RN or Associate class on weekends(only)? my english is terrible, does that have anything to do with course?

thank you

I don't think there is any other school in NYC that accommodates weekend students other than BMCC, and with that I am not completely sure whether you will still be required to attend classes during evenings on weekdays. Best for someone who is actually at the school to answer that question for you. Off the top of my head, I think Westchester Community College in Valhalla (about 20 miles north of NYC) may offer weekend too, but not sure.

Your English in my opinion does not seem so bad, your written English anyway. I don't believe this will be a hindrance to your academics, and if you make extra efforts to improve it, all the better.

Well getting into a nursing school no matter where you go is a full time thing most of them go in order for the classes you have to registar for. I don't think there is a nursing school only on weekends. Yes, you have to speak English clearly, you will be doing a lot of pt care and you have to speak English. Community Collges have the longest waiting list than any other school. You will still have alot of pre reqs where ever you go. I know it sucks.
