    Cathy, I just finished my app for 2011 as well. I am currently taking Eng 2377, Bible as Lit, at UNO. I know several people who have taken an online course through LSU. I don't think it was the theology class, but a Bible as Lit class as well. Also, at DCC the transfer class is Eng 253 Bible as Lit...

    Thanks I will look into those. I tried talking to the admissions office about this and where I could take a course and they were not real helpful so I appreciate the responses.

    Gentle TOS reminder:

    While it is important to be able to network, everyone should be mindful of the following:

    1. It is a small world - when we narrow it down to a state and throw in some personal info, there is actually a pretty good chance someone may recognize you if you are not careful. Your privacy is paramount to us.
    2. While this site is a wonderful place to vent (without excess personally identifiable details) it is not the place to express why ("x" specific person, place or program) is terrible. Gripe away, but since we cannot permit allegations to be made about named entities, your care in not naming them is very much appreciated.
    3. Please do not give out personal information about others. Do not name names where anyone could identify the person in any facility including your nursing programs.

    Bundi356 can you tell me me what online class you are taking for the Religion 101 requirement? Thanks for the replies and I am looking locally but so far no luck - the only class I found is during the day and I work fulltime so can only do online or night classes. Hate to think this one class might keep me out (assuming I get accepted!)

    The class at Ivy Tech is titled PHIL22000F - Philosophy of Religion

    Got lucky and found a correspondence course from LSU that OLOL will accept in place of the religion class they offer. I have finished my app but I still need Micro which I am taking this fall - they said that is fine but I wonder how many actually get accepted that still have prereqs to do. Oh, well I will keep plugging along and get them done and if I don't get in Jan I will apply for the ones in the Spring.

    Also I asked admissions about the 6 hours at OLOL required and they said that was only for the traditional and would not apply to those in the accelerated - hope this info is right!!

    Quote from nolamommy
    I was told that I don't need to take the TEAS until I am accepted, is this correct??
    Can anyone speak to this? I have applied to both the BR General School of Nursing and OLOL's accelerated program, and the General requires the TEAS-V as part of the application process. Does OLOL have you take it after you've been accepted?

    The accelerated at OLOL does not require TEAS as part of the application process although they do for their regular ADN program. I kept getting notices from them about not having my TEAS scores and after multiple conversations they finally got it that I was only applying for the accelerated and they assured me TEAS scores are not required for the application but if accepted we will have to take it to give them a better idea of our level of knowledge. I have not heard any more from them so assume my application for accelerated is in process of review. Sure hope they don't take forever letting us know something. Hope this helps.

    For anyone who has already completed this program. Do you have weekend clinicals for the Mental Health class?

    Hello everyone, I really hope we can keep these posts or threads up. I'm interested in beginning OLOL accelerated RN prog September 2011. Like many here, I have questions also, some has been answered from reading this, but still have more. I understand it will difficult, I'm willing to sacrafice for 10 months, is it possible to work during this program, like maybe picking up some PRN shifts here and there? I also saw mention of the signing a contract with a hospital and they pay for your tuition, do most students do it that way or can you be on a payment plan? When you graduate will have an associate or a BSN, I saw on the site their changing to the BSN program?
