    I wish they would get on with it! I called today, and still no interview letters. I'm not even sure if the committe for EJ has met yet. I heard it might not be until mid June. Does anyone know if Tulane applicants have been notified yet?

    I called yesterday morning and they said they are not doing interviews for the EJ program and letters would be sent at the end of the month. I just hope that is the case because I can't stand waiting anymore!!

    one of my friends applied to the tulane program and she got her letter yesterday, telling her she'd been accepted. i assume they didn't do interviews because as of a month ago they were still in contract negotiations with tulane (or at least that's what they told her when she called in mid-april). i guess they ran out of time. hnewman81's post is the first i've heard about no ej program interviews. that would be wonderful if we found out by the end of this month!!

    I tried to get some info out of EJ & so did a friend of mine and all we got from them was "We don't know at this point." So, I am just wondering how solid that "no interview" info is, and if we will find out sooner than 2 mos before classes start. Doesn't Tulane start in July? If so, those applicants did not have very much time to prepare. Hope that doesnt happen to us! According to the secretary, they are still going through the applications. I've also tried to get info about the actualy program since it's changed from last year, but I didn't really get anywhere with that either. Last year, tuition was covered through HEARTS funding w/ a 6 month contract with the hospital. HEARTS did not renew the funding according to EJ, so if anyone has info relating to the new agreement, please do share!

    I don't know her exact GPA, but I'm sure it's over 3.5. She's a good student, in her mid 30's, not married, no children. I'm sure she had excellent letters of reference and wrote a good essay.

    I got a letter from OLOL today -- I got into the EJ program! The hospital isn't going to pay anyone's tuition this year, so I'm going to have to get a student loan for that. Obviously this means no guaranteed job upon graduation, but I'm just going to step out on faith that I'll find a job when I graduate. Hope you all got in too!!

    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

    Congrats! I'm in, too. It's time to start working on those grant and scholarship apps. I hope we make it and come out smelling like roses w/ jobs at EJ. I called 504-227-1283 and inquired about a grant from the Workforce Investment Act (WIA). The gentleman I spoke to said they have funded the last 2 classes for the accelerated program. He couldn't tell me if they were funding this year's classes but advised me to come in to the office in Gretna & apply. Good luck to everyone who applied. Here we go.

    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!

    Thanks for the info. From the prerequisites you mentioned, it seems they require more than charity school of nursing. Gosh, it will take me longer to get into this program. But, I might give it a shot. Where did you take your prerequisites?
    I live in kenner and the cheapest option would be Delgado but I don't think they would honor their courses. Also, I have 2 daughters. How is the course? they put everything you would learn in 2 years into how many months? Is there an advantage to taking this fast program? How competitive is it to get in?
