Good morning! Can someone please confirm or discredit my thinking...I have a degree in Finance and I am thinking of making a career change to pursue nursing. Do I need to choose a school and "stick with it"? The reason I am asking is b/c I read that BRCC doesn't honor some of OLOL's classes and vice versa. OLOL also requires that 6 credit hours be taken through their college for acceptance to the clinical phase. The only pre-nursing classes I am missing are Anatomy & Physiology I and II and Microbiology. Since OLOL offers the Accelerated program and also the traditional ADN, it seems like my chances would be better there. While I would love to increase my chances and apply to both schools, it doesn't seem that will be possible...unless I am missing something. Can someone shed some light for me?
Thank you in advance!

Actually OLOL puts a LOT of weight in the essay you are asked to write as to why you want to get in. Go talk to a Technical writing teacher and get some advice. Also for at least the last two years (including this one) Tulane and gov't grants pay the tuition but that is not a given.
Also think very carefully about an accelerated program; you basically teach yourself from your textbooks at least half of the time and I mean to teach yourself to give shots from a book is not easy. It is one tough program and not for sissys. We have a GREAT class this year, most people help others but you never forget (and they do not let you forget) that you may be one test, one skills checkoff away from failure and not ever getting into another RN program. So unless you are prepared to give up everything in your life but this program then find another way to being an RN.
