    I was just accepted into the RN program there... What do you need help with? The school accepts their students first, being enrolled there and taking your science courses there helps a lot in the application process. If you have a nursing GPA of a 2.5 or above and have taken a majority of your courses there you are sure to get in. They do factor in previously failed courses and grades into your nursing GPA.

    Also a proficient score on the TEAS is very important.

    I have heard some good things about Holy Cross college. I think the reason that you haven't heard a lot about it is because the classes are very small. Honestly, I would love to go there but I don't want to be in serious dept when I graduate. About 30,000 for nursing school? Am I calcuating this correctly? I recently looked at LSU med school and it was 27,000.... :/

    I honest don't have much experience with financial aid. I've been going to Delgado and paid out of pocket. And for my first degree I was on TOPS. I used a student loan calculator and it told me for 30,000 dept I would pay approx $360 a month. It was a random internet site, so not sure if that's even accurate. That's not a crazy note to me on a nurses salary, but if I were to go on to get my NP and need more financial assistance, would I have a problem getting it?

    Sorry for the ramble, but my brain is fried from A&P haha. I was planning on applying to Charity & LSU for spring admission but my boyfriend interviewed a lot of nurses today on his EMT ride along and 9 out of 10 at a private New Orleans hospital said go to Holy Cross. Also a friend said to do whatever you could to go there. I'm just trying to crunch numbers and weigh options.

    Any advice would be appreciated!

    Hi

    I just decided to go to OLHCC for the fall semester to finish some of the pre-reqs there so that I have a better chance of getting in for Spring 2015. What was your GPA when you apply and what was your TEAS score. I was going to Nunez for LPN but i really wanted to get my BSN and fulfill my dream. I really hope I get a chance to get accepted because it seems like a good school. I'm currently at Delgado and will do my Microbiology and Human a&p 1 lect/lab in the summer. My English 101 and college algebra 118 are done already.

    I have everything completed except the philosophy and theology. Have you talked with Brandy? She is immensely helpful. Honestly, if you aren't worried about the cost I would say go for it. They do accept their own students first. I think of the new class there are only a handful of us that are new to OLHCC.

    Hi Meeky2006,
    Did you decide to attend OLHCC?
    If so, do you have any advice for prospective candidates? I applied for the Fall 2016 and am on pins and needles waiting to see if I get in!!

    Hi OnOn2RN,

    I have a quick question about your acceptance letter from OLHCC...
    Was it in a large envelope or a small one??
    I'm on pins and needles waiting to see if I got in and letters won't be mailed out until the first week of May. I just want to know what to expect!

    I am also waiting for my letter to start this fall. I spoke with a friend who is graduating from the program this year and she said her letter came in a small envelope. I also heard they accept about 65 students but im interested in how many students applied. Any ideas?
