I will be applying to the accelerated nursing program at OLOL college for the Fall of 08. I was just wondering if any past graduates or students who are curretly in the program could share with me any of your credentials that got you accepted into the program, such as GPA, medical experience, etc.
I believe that I exceed the minimum requirements. I have a Bachelor's and a Master's degree, but I have no prior healthcare experience. Any responses are greatly appreciated. Thanks!

How soon did you apply to the program?
I began applying for the NO program last fall, a few months after I had graduated from college. I had been deciding between PA school and nursing, but went with nursing because I wanted to be able to move around in specialities a little bit. The applications for the BR program were due the middle of April and I didn't do anything accept fill out another application for the BR program. I got asked for interviews to both but went with the BR program. Because it only got approved this spring, my classes do not start until October 1st and we go until end of July, beginning of August of 2008. I think they needed the extra time to get more organized. Also there is no stipend program with the BR program, and there isn't any work contract with OLOL med center. I'm so excited.
I took medical terminology in college and so did several other of my classmates and everyone has to take it again except one girl who said they accepted her class. I'm not sure why they didn't accept my class but I agree if you don't have to take, you have more time for your nursing classes.
