Hey guys! I will be 30 this July and I wanted to know what the process is for the nursing program at EJ. I wanted to do the charity school of nursing but I will have to wait and yet to get in until fall 2011! I don't think I can wait that long! Please let me know how long you guys waited and the requirements are. Thanks
Hi. Start w/ the online application and make your essay count. Have all your college transcripts sent to OLOL in Baton Rouge & get good friends or employers to write you (3) meaningful reference letters. You need a Bachelor's in anything to be accepted. You will also need to have taken the following prereqs: A&P I & II, Nutrition, Developmental Psychology, Microbiology, Chemistry, along w/ English Comp., College Algebra, Intro Sociology, and a Religion or Fine Arts or Philosophy Class. Once they have your transcripts, they will send you a checklist of the courses you need to complete before being admitted.
It is also rumored that next year's class will have a Microbiology lab requirement. Once you get your checklist just start chipping away at the prereqs. For me, it was 3 semesters, but I had a baby in the Fall or otherwise could've gotten done in 2. I applied in June 08 & got my acceptance letter today.
OLOL has a program w/ Tulane in New Orleans, West Jeff in Marrero, East Jeff in Metairie, and OLOL in Baton Rouge. Good luck!
