    One of the mentors just answered this, editing just to say take a peek at the previous page!

    This isn’t well known, but you don’t need a certification to work as a CNA after you complete one semester of nursing school! You should wait and apply in the fall to get adjusted to the program and it’s expectations, if possible.

    I know that you're very frustrated but this is a super common thing. The feelings of frustration and confusion are just beginning. Great opportunity to practice your patience in preparation for the rest of the program! The good news is that they always fix it, it just takes awhile. There's nothing you can do in the meantime so just take a breath and try to focus on something else! It will all work out <-- your new mantra ***editing to add that all nursing programs are complicated and confusing, there's just so many people to organize and rules for the administration to follow, so don't be discouraged!

    Congrats to everyone who (so far) got in! In regards to the possible email mix up, this is an excellent introduction to UF CON for you lol we have fun but we live in a constant state of confusion, welcome to the club

    Not sure if anyone else has answered this yet, but I think you get whatever campus they tell you in the email. In order to switch I believe that you'd have to go on the waitlist for the other campus and you would be placed at the end of the line. Not entirely sure so definitely check with Kenneth, but that's what I heard happening last year.

    We heard that you guys find out on Friday around 5:00! There's never a guarantee because there's so much going on in CON, but if this turns out to be true then good luck! And remember to make a Facebook group ASAP!!

    Don't apologize for asking anything, you should be well-prepared for this program if you're admitted! Trust me, you'll wish you asked much more in the future. Patho grades were a combination of exams, homework assignments, and quizzes. Same with pharm but they added in case studies as well. Exams make up the majority of your grade in almost every class, especially the harder ones. Unfortunately, professors seldom offer extra credit (if they do, DO IT! Wether you need it or not at that moment, DO IT). They also don't show any pity. I know a girl who unfortunately lost a member of her immediate family during semester two. She somehow managed to attend the final SOC exam but did poorly and her passing grade was 1.2 points below the requirement. They didn't budge, even with her situation, and she had to repeat the course. I answered a question about course schedules somewhere around page 18 or 19, but the summers are usually busier than the fall and spring because there's only 12 weeks instead of 16. You'll probably have an activity planned for every weekday during summer. We had one lecture day and two clinical days in fall and spring, with a fourth day reserved for exams and/or meetings. I think they try to give us at least one day off a week but sometimes they just can't because there are so many other nursing students. I'm not sure if they've changed the schedule since the new curriculum rolled out, but I'm sure that it's still manageable! Many people in our cohort have jobs but a few chose to quit after summer. It depends on who you are and how you handle stress and study.

    They mostly failed, unfortunately. We lost one or two people the first semester due to patho and then more people second semester due to SOC2 and pharm. You never really know why someone fails, but those courses are intense. We're in semester 3 now and I don't expect to lose many people this semester since our course load drastically decreased.

    Before I answer these questions it's important for you to know that UF recently overhauled their curriculum so our classes are slightly different than those that you will take. For example, we took patho and pharm separately but now they're combined to be a part 1 and part 2 course (this is better!). 1. Personally, my favorite lecture courses were health assessment and SOC2. They were both more difficult but you really learn a lot in them. Your clinical courses will probably be your favorite though because you're actually out in the hospital doing things! 2. Our hardest course was probably patho because we were brand new to the program and it was a lot in just 6 weeks of summer. SOC2 is difficult as well but you at least know what you're doing by the time that rolls around.

    UCF Summer 2018 Second Degree BSN

    Hey guys! I had a change of heart and decided to accept another program's offer at the last second. Basically gave all of my friends and family whiplash but when you know, you know! Just wanted to say best of luck to those in the program and to those in the waitlist, I know at least one spot is opening up! Good luck to all I'm sure everyone here will one day be a fantastic nurse. :)

    I read the due date as March instead of May! Had a huge panic attack but once I realized my mistake I felt like a total idiot! Feels good knowing all of those forms aren't due for awhile lol

    Hey everyone! I emailed Charlenne this morning to double check that my RSVP had been received. She said that everyone should've gotten an auto response right after sending in their reply and then the email about Castle Branch. I went ahead and told her that several of us did not receive the auto response. She said that she has been recording the RSVP's herself so she's confident she's gotten all of ours. If you want to double check with her you can, but she at least knows that some of us weren't getting the auto email!

    Do anyone's Castle Branch documents still say under review? Is this acceptable on the due date tomorrow?

    Poor Grades in Non-Required Pre-Requisites

    Just to update - I ended up scoring a 91.3 on the TEAS exam and applied to UF, UNF, and UCF with a 4.0 pre-req GPA and a 3.6 undergrad GPA. I was accepted into each program! For anyone who is nervous to apply for the same reason I was, don't miss out on the opportunity to try. You miss 100% of the shots you don't take.
