  1. 0
    I've accepted an admissions offer to OLOL nursing program on today! I'm thrilled and I really want to start off on my good foot...like James Brown said . Can anyone who's graduated from this program already or in it currently give me some advice on how I can prepare for it? Also, I'm a little worried that I won't get enough training since the program is so short..Im not soo worried that I'd consider the 2yr program BUT I am still worried. Do graduates from the accel prog feel adequately prepared for work on the floor?? Thanks guys

    If you search for OLOL you will come up with so many threads on this program. I graduated in 2008 from the Tulane/OLOL program and went to work at West Jeff for the past year. I did not feel as prepared as I had hoped, however every nurse has to rely on their employers training program to learn to nurse. I have the pharm. notes but saw that another person has offered the notes from this years program on this site. It would be a good idea to study these notes. A lot of people flunk Pharm. Let me know if there are any questions you have not answered in the threads

    Hi dsoginer, I would LOVE to look at your old notes. I've been trying to get them for about two weeks now. I think I've posted enough to use the private messaging thingy. If you don't mind and when you find time, could get a copy?? No real rush since the program starts in two months. thanks a bunch in advan ce if you can!

    Also, are there any nursing prereqs I should review...I know I should know the info from those classes hence the reason theyre prereqs but should I focus more on one particular subject than I should another?

    The best advice I can give you is to take the Hurst review before classes start. I had received this advice but since I had never heard of it AND our Pharm teacher's name was "Hurst", I assumed (never assume as a nurse) it was something she would do. Beep, wrong!! The Hurst review is a week long seminar, that teaches you how to take a nursing exam. It gives you rationals for why one answer is the most correct one (and believe me there are two answers to every question that will be correct), what to look for as important in a question and tips that will help you with your nursing. I am not affiliated with this program just a fan. You will have to take it before you take the NCLEX or you will statistically not pass. My suggestion is to take it before the class starts then for $50.00 more dollars you can go to their website and get help throughout the OLOL program. Then you can take it again at the end of the program before you take the NCLEX for no additional fee. Those who did this in my program made much better grades than everyone else. Of course, we did have some smart people in my class who did not need this (disclaimer, so don't write to me! )

    Then pay attention in Med. Term.

    Let me know if there is anything else you need to know

    Thanks for all the advice. I bought a used book on the hurst review i hope it helps. I have also been looking for th pharmacology notes so I can start looking over them before classes start. If anyone wouldn't mind sharing that would be wonderful!
