    Broward college nursing program 2020

    Did you find these shoes at a Walmart store or order online? They seem to be all white and I'd love to get these instead of the more expensive pairs until I know more about what is required.

    I have heard such conflicting things on Sherpath. I hear from some to not bother with it and from others to get it!

    Where did you order your books through? I haven't gotten them yet and not sure best way to go about getting them!

    So my understanding is that in the beginning clinicals will be two days regardless of the campus because we will not actually be in the hospital. Instead, we will be on campus in the nursing building learning some basics before going into the hospitals. So instead of having one 10-12 hour day of clinicals in the hospital, it'll be two somewhat shorter days (TW) on campus until we are released to begin clinicals at our clinical site. I could be wrong, but this was my understanding. Based on this, we will need to be on campus every single day of the week for this first month at least.

    Hi Yveline! You’re at north campus, too? Is there a private messaging option on here? I’m not too familiar with this website lol and I don’t want to give our my phone number on a public board. But if you message me on here somehow, I’d be happy to share! I am also fearful!! But let the fear fuel your dedication and your determination to succeed no matter what! If other people can do it, so can we! There’s nothing they have that we don’t! It’ll be all about being extremely organized, prioritizing well, and sacrificing sleep lol. But hey... we can sleep when we’re dead as I always say haha!

    So I had my PPD and my TDAP vaccine already done so I didn’t need to do it there. For the 5 titers— MMR, Varicella, Hep B plus the physical... came out to $285 for me. I got my flu shot for free at Publix earlier in the week.

    Hi all! I’ll be at north campus come January! I’m so glad I got my first choice. If there’s anyone that’s looking for a place to get their physical done and they’re self-pay, MDNow locations are offering $25 off their physical price of $80.
  8. I am looking for information on how clinicals work at Broward College for their generic full-time ASN program. North or central campus. Are clinicals once a week? 12-hour days? Or are they more than once a week? Shorter days? The college has created a part-time program beginning next semester and I want to make sure I am choosing the right delivery method for me (PT vs. FT). Thanks so much to anyone that can provide insight! GREATLY appreciated!
  9. I believe you have three hours on the exam. You can complete the sections in any order that you'd like. I started with the sections that I thought would be easier for me (grammar/vocab) and I left anatomy and physiology for last. I did submit my application last month, but for the full-time program. I considered the part-time option, but really would like to finish the full-time option. I hope the HESI went well if you took it already.

    Broward College Nursing Review 2019

    I don't know much about it, but many RN-BSN programs are made for working nurses. The ones I am looking into are FIU and FAU. I would make an appt to talk to advisor about it!
  11. I'm planning on beginning a nursing program at my local college in January. ASN program. I have to echo some of what prior people mentioned. I have a prior degree in business and was also choosing between an ABSN program and the program at my local college. I decided against the ABSN program for several reasons. Those being... the local college's reputation in my area (highest NCLEX passing rate even when compared to university level programs and every hospital will say they LOVE nurses from this school!), clinical hours (many ABSN programs have less clinical hours because the program is one year only as it is), and COST. The ASN program is 18 months. I'd still have to go into an RN-to-BSN program after, but most of those are online AND my plan is to have whatever hospital I work for pay for that program. In this way, I can minimize student debt, maximize my clinical hours, and still graduate from one of the BEST programs in the area! Downside is I won't be graduating with a BSN so I will have to go back to school and the program I'm attending will be six months longer. Hang in there! It's never too late and if this is something you really want to pursue, go for it! The time will pass anyway!
  12. Hi! I took the HESI earlier this month at BC. I thought the anatomy and physiology portion was easier than I expected (especially since all the info was fresh from the courses!) and the questions were general. The math was somewhat challenging. The questions I had were basically ALL fractions (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division), ratios, and conversions! I didn’t know all of my conversions like pints, quarts, cups, gallons, etc. and you definitely want to memorize those! The other sections weren’t hard. Review the elsevier book. They show you how to do long division again and stuff which is not something I’d waste my time on since you have a calculator. Instead make sure you know things like how you convert mixed numbers to improper fractions, dividing fractions (same change flip), etc. Good luck!

    RN + MBA?

    Thanks for the response! My plan would be to do the ASN and (hopefully) land an RN position within a hospital that would pay for my BSN so I could begin that right after. I am anxious about moving into nursing with my two business degrees + business background so I was hoping that they would at least complement each other!

    MDC program + working

    Hi all, Any current or future nursing students that are completing Miami Dade's ADN program while working? Are you doing the part-time or full-time program? And are you working part-time or full-time? Not working isn't an option for me so I'm looking to find the next best thing!

    MBA + RN career paths

    Hi all, I'm considering beginning a nursing program (ADN) at either Broward College or Miami-Dade college in Florida. I already have a BS and MBA (in different business concentrations) and am looking for input into what kind of paths are open for RNs with MBAs, if any. I want to do bedside nursing at a hospital for a few years at least, but am wondering if these degrees complement each other at all as far as advancing your career if you want to move away from bedside at some point. Thanks in advance!
