    Hello. I applied to the program too. I believe they stated letters would go out the end of this month or beginning of November.
    What classes have you already completed?
    It is very hard to post a comment due to the error message I keep receiving so my apologies for the funny sounding message.

    Hey! I figured the letters would be coming any time now.

    I was a biology major at FAU and decided to change my major to pursue nursing 2 semesters from graduating so I was able to complete a lot of the pre-reqs required for the nursing program a few years back.

    I applied for the nursing program at GSCS for Fall 2017 and got accepted but made the decision to apply for Spring because I delivered my daughter and became a mommy last month and the advisor recommended I wait until next semester. When I applied for Fall, I had all of my pre-reqs completed except for A&P2 and Microbiology with the labs and surprisingly still got accepted into the program. Over the summer I was able to complete all of the classes and even took Pharmacology so I'm hoping I will get accepted again. Fingers crossed!!

    Oh. Well that's great! Congratulations on your new addition. It sounds like you have a good chance of getting in again, expecially with completing all prerequisites.
    I have done all classes but Pharmacology. I was worried about my Hesi Test and past transcripts but hopefully my recent ones will prove I'm focused. I can not wait to get the letter in the mail.
    Do you already have your CPR certification? If so, where did you complete it at? I did hold mine a few years ago and was thinking about getting it again from the Red Cross.
    Thank you for the response.

    Thank you! But I still feel nervous regardless because I don't know what the competition looks like between the pool of students applying this semester so I'm hoping that the classes that I did over the summer helps better my chances and I'm hoping that me declining the offer the first time doesn't negatively effect me. I know they only accept 50 students every time.

    I think if you have everything done except for Pharmacology then that already gives you a good chance of getting into the program since they expect you to take pharm your first semester anyways.

    I did get CPR certified back in 2012 down in South Florida and never renewed it once it expired so I'm assuming I would have to take the class over since it has been a while. I know that the school offers a couple of CPR classes but I'm sure there are several other places in PC that do as well.
