OU ABSN program

  1. Hi everyone!

    I am applying for OU nursing in the fall and wanted to know from anyone who got in what their GPA's were.
    My last 60 units is a 3.2 and Science is a 3.0. I know fall is when the most people apply.

    Thanks in advance!

    I was recently accepted and start in June. My GPA was 3.9 across the board. I'm very excited and hope it's a great program. I go to their open house this Friday, where I should learn about the specifics and logistics of the program. I'll be doing the program out of the Glendale, CA offices. If you're interested in hearing about my experience there, feel free to contact me, and I'll fill you in. :-)

    Are you applying to the Health Science Center campus, or one of the satellites?

    I would definitely suggest getting a transcript eval. I considering applying to the HSC in OKC and I found that very helpful. Good luck with your application process

    Anyone else get accepted and GPA not as high? My BS was in Biology and I didnt focus on my grades back then. I am taking anatomy so my GPA should go up to 3.2 if I get an A.

    Hi Donna,

    This is Dyana. I will be in the Glendale summer class with you! Did you get all of your stuff in order yet?

    Hi Dyana!

    Funny you should ask me that. I JUST got off the phone with Natasha with a couple questions. :-)

    Anyway, so far I have completed:

    CPR class
    Titers for MMR and chicken pox
    First TB skin test
    First Hep Vax
    TDap vax
    Background check
    Drug test
    Insurance Proof (though waiting on their response)
    Patches sown on scrubs

    I still have to:
    Get second TB skin test (Wednesday appointment)
    Get second Hep shot (will have to do this RIGHT before classes start due to month spacer between shots)
    Fill out forms, gather info and send in what I have

    In the meanwhile, I am still waiting for my financial aid letter and getting VERY nervous about it. I am also waiting for some stuff I ordered at open house (stethoscope, polo shirts, etc). It seems the deadlines for all the scholarships are past, so I'm a little frustrated about that.

    How about you? How goes your progress?

    Hi SD girl. I am currently in the ABSN program at the HSC campus about to graduate August 1 (YAY!)
    My gpa was less than 3.0 and I got accepted, and in fact, I turned in my application late as well! Granted, my previous degree was Engineering, Most people have low to mid 3.0 GPAs.

    Hope this helps! And if worse comes to worse, you apply and they say no. You'll never know until you try!
