    Hey everyone!

    I know me and a few others are planning to study tomorrow after class and after practicing in lab. One of our fellow classmates said we can rent a room in the library (large or small private rooms) for about 3 hours or so! Which is great so no one can interrupt us. Also, if any of you need a laptop (unless you have your own already) we can rent those too. So if anyone is interested, let me know! I'll also send out messages on facebook.

    If I don't hear from anyone else, see you all tomorrow!

    Hey Sterlik!

    Well, the nursing pre-requisites that you need for the BMCC for program, currently, is Anatomy and Physiology 1, English 201, Math for Health Sciences and Psychology. When I applied to BMCC in 2008 (I graduated from Baruch in 2006), they transferred over my Art Survey class, Speech, English 201 and Psychology 101. They told me I had the option of not transferring over my English 101 class because I received a B- and they told me I wouldn't get in the prorgram with anything lower than a B+ (that's an option they give transfer students). Honestly, since Baruch is mainly business-oriented, it's really difficult to tell you which classess to take there and "hopefully" they are transferred over to BMCC. I do not want to tell you the wrong information. But I can definitely tell you that if you decide to transfer to BMCC or graduate from Baruch first, they are going to tell you to take certain classes, either way. You really can't run away from it but the most you can try is to take the classes that you need and avoid the "extra" classes that you don't need. BMCC may tell you need to take chemistry 121 before you take Anatomy and Physiology; they will also tell you that you need Developmental Psychology, which I recommend you to take it a BMCC because I think the 4 year schools split the class up into two semesters and at BMCC is only one (you can save money). Also, I can suggest that you go to www.cuny.edu and click "Current Students" and then click "TIPPS" (Transfer Information and Program Planning System). This will tell you which classes you can transfer among all the CUNY colleges. I think that will help you the most. Actually, the direct link to TIPPS is http://student.cuny.edu/cgi-bin/Cour...CatColleges.pl

    Yeah, I understand that sometimes advisors may not know everything. Those advisors can only tell you what you need to graduate from Baruch college. Maybe if you have time, check out if BMCC have an open house and or feel free to look through their website. http://www.bmcc.cuny.edu/health/nursing/NUR.html

    If you have any more questions, let me know! I hope that helps! Good luck with everything!

    Hey Sterlik,

    I was curious and looked at the website, myself (TIPPS) and hopefully, when you get a chance, you check it out. It will tell you exactly what classes you can take and transfer over to BMCC. I checked out that Baruch has this class call BIO 3025, Human Physiology that is equivalent to BIO 425, Anatomy and Physiology 1 in BMCC. The only thing that worries me is that Baruch will probably want you to take a pre-requisite (or even 2 classes but I am not sure) before you take Human Physiology. BMCC is the same way, since I said before that I had to take Chemistry 121 before I could take Anatomy and Physiology 1. But TIPPS will help you alot.

    Hey Sterlik! No problem! You are welcome to ask me anything else! I apologize for responding this late, finals are coming up so I am just studying, most of the time! But I hope everything works out for you. I wouldn't say that it is difficult to find someone to talk; if you have the nursing department's direct number, you can call them and ask them questions. Sometimes they may direct you to the bmcc website to read about the nursing program since all the information is there; it's good to read the website first and seek clarification from the staff, if you need to. But good luck with everything!
