    HCC Spring 2017 Nursing Program

    The GPA varies with each entrance. They start at 4.0 for the prereqs and start working their way down (so, all 4.0, then 3.9, 3.8 etc), once they get to the lower numbers they use overall GPA only as a tie breaker. So, if two people have a 3.5 pre-req GPA, but one has an overall GPA of 3.24 and one of 3.44 then the one with the 3.44 gets in. Classes. The days vary by location and time of classes (afternoon, morning, evening). My cohort has afternoons. We have clinicals on Wednesday from 6:30 am to 5 or something like that. We have class Thur and Fri from 12:30-3:30. We also have to do time in the simulation lab and time in the lab getting skills checked off. You need to be flexible with your schedule, and you need to plan to come to school to get your lab hours done. We did not see evryone's GPA, but had a private group and shared our GPA's. We figured out the cutoof from there. There was also a HUGE amount of people that applied (400, which is actually half of how many applied to USF for even fewer available spots), but it seemed to have surprised the program.

    Nursing school is too easy!

    My friend graduated from a program, and the NCLEX pass rate was only 50%!!

    Maricela, Hi. I have Dale Mabry afternoons. I asked about books for nursing school at Books and More(this is a link to their website), which is the bookstore on Lois and MLK that sells HCC textbooks cheaper than HCC, and also buys back books for more than HCC will pay you (and if you have financial aid, it can be used there during a certain time period). The woman said that for the nursing program they sell a box of all required materials. The box is over $600. There are also other materials that they recommend, but aren't required. I have no doubt I will be purchasing those as well, because that is just what I do. Also, here is what comes up(also a link) when you search "nursing" at the Dale Mabry HCC Bookstore. Also, here is the page from HCC outlining expected cost of the program.

    I am currently a student at USF, and I can get the varicella titer for $22. The TB x-ray is an or thing The TB (PPD) test or the chest x-ray. You don't need both. I don't currently have health insurance, so I went to Tampa Family Health Clinic for the physical and the TB test. Based on my families income, I only had to pay $15.00. I didn't get the flu shot though. It is optional, and I might just skip it because they didn't give it to me at the appt I had. I talked to the health department about the varicella vaccine. They charge $116 a shot and you need two.

    I've made a thread for those who got in. This one is pretty long and unwieldy.
  14. I've made a new thread for those accepted, and attending, any of the Hillsborough Community College Spring nursing programs for 2017. Welcome, and congrats!!

    How many times did you take the class? If you get an A, then it brings your grade up. If it is the third time you take it then it will take .2 points off your overall GPA. As for the questions on the bottom of the background check, I bet they can help us answer those questions when we go to the Ybor campus to fill it out. But, yeah it was seriously confusing.
