    I didn't get in with a 3.3 overall, 3.4 prereq and 86.7

    Anyone know if concurrent and ASN students will be mixed together for classes or will we have separate cohorts? Still trying to find people who got into concurrent.

    Someone a few years back got in with a 3.1 into Seminole but only after applying 5 times. Honestly I wouldn't wait, WGU accepts 2.5 and up. If your GPA is low either go WGU or go the private schools route. Time is money and in a blink of an eye you'll have waited several years. I wish I would've been smarter and went Kaiser or Rasmussen rather than waited years to get everything done for concurrent.

    Valencia waitlist email stated that but UCF waitlist email said that it could be up to the program start date. That's if you applied to concurrent.

    And guys in Valencia traditional, apply to https://nursing.ucf.edu/academics/bachelors-degrees/online-fcs-bsn/ after your first semester.

    I emailed you the link to WGU. They even accept pre reqs done through some online place called Straightliner. Their accredited by CCNE and the state of florida nursing board, as I checked myself and emailed them since it sounded so shady. Theoretically you can start at a rural state college that offer 3 semester ADN and do the separate UCF concurrent and get your BSN before us in the Valencia UCF concurrent. https://nursing.ucf.edu/academics/bachelors-degrees/online-fcs-bsn/ Seriously guys if your waitlisted or waiting to get all pre reqs done. Go through this list because you can do the separate UCF concurrent on your own, you don't need SSC or Valencia. http://www.fldoe.org/schools/higher-ed/fl-college-system/colleges/ And several programs only require English 2, a college math, Bio, and AP 1 to apply. And many are shorter than Valencia or SSC.

    And as I already wrote don't wait on SSC/Valencia concurrent. Had UCF offered the Florida State College System concurrent option back when I started in 2012, I wouldve taken 6 classes and applied to the rural community college that offer 3 semester ADN programs while doing the concurrent BSN and probably would've been a nurses for 5 years by now. Had I known about WGU I would've applied years ago as they like many of the rural community colleges dont require your gen eds to be complete.

    Don't wait for the concurrent, dont be a fool and waste nearly a decade of your life like I did. UCF offers the concurrent separately through all Florida State College System schools and also Western Governor's University has a online pre licensure BSN program in Daytona Beach that's accredited (I emailed ACCNE myself). I was about to apply to 12 different schools since you can do concurrent on your own at any community college while in a ADN program. It's on the UCF site. Seriously dont wait for concurrent. A lot of the rural community college only require AP 1, Bio and Microbio and dont even need TEAS or HESI. There's 20 something community colleges in Florida, get in where ever you can and do the concurrent portion separately. UCF calls it the ADN-BSN Florida State College System something something. And i'm pretty sure WGU is easier to get into since hardly anyone knows about it. A guy on youtube and someone else on here got into their program in other states with 2.7 GPAs. And their a 5 semester BSN, flat $5,500 a semester. Though their semesters are 6 months. I deeply regret spending so many years slowly slogging it out for concurrent taking classes part time when I could've just taken 6 classes and applied to a rural community college for the ADN and still do concurrent.

    I appreciate the compliment but to be honest I wasn't really trying and that 86.7 was my minimal effort. That was my first attempt with about 3 whole days of serious studying and a week of not so serious studying. I did poorly on the grammar portion and AP. I know without a doubt had I actually bothered to study grammar I would've gotten a 91 easily. With another 2 weeks of studying AP I probably could've gotten a 94 or 95. It's honestly not that hard. I aced math and did well on chem portions and reading and did bad on AP and grammar and still got an 86.7. What I mean to say is that it's not as hard as people make it out to be, the hardest part is AP and science. The rest of the stuff is 10th grade level. And I should state that I took AP back in 2014. So don't let it stress you out, it's not that bad (except the AP portion). If you can pass 10th grade you can ace every portion except AP/Science. I was lazy and made excuses for myself and put off the TEAS for nearly 2 years because people's horror stories on here so I kept telling myself I wasn't ready and didn't have the time to devout myself to studying. When with minimal effort I managed a 86.7 while hardly retaining much AP knowledge from 5 years ago.

    Well, this is the first semester that I applied, I've been working towards the program since 2012 and had everything ready except for 1 class at the fall of 2015 when I thought I'd apply but life got in the way. So the answer is this the first time that I applied. 3.3 overall GPA, 3.4 prereq science GPA, 86.7 TEAS.

    I got wait listed for concurrent.... should've just applied to regular now that they offer the other concurrent program for after your in a nursing program. I'll probably do that for Spring 2020, apply to like 12 places for ADN and just do the other concurrent from UCF once im in ADN.

    UCF's nursing application site. Also, based on previous year's in terms of how long they took, concurrent should be getting acceptance emails from the 15th - 25th. So fingers crossed everyone.
