- Jul 29, '04 by angel 4Hi, VEKE-RNtobe. Yes, I received an application packet and it has the information you were talking about on the recent thread. I have a BS degree in social counseling and graduated and recently passed boards as an LPN. I am interested in attending the program since it is 10 months for the ASN.I am thinking about applying myself since the deadline is March 1. Are you planning to attend the next class in August of next year since they accept application once a year. I am glad to talk to someone that know about the program.

- Jul 30, '04 by angel 4This is a small world. I graduated from Our Lady of Holy Cross College in '02 with my degree. I completed my prereqs over there while I was in school. I stay on the Westbank. Where do you stay on the Westbank or Eastbank. Yes, I plan on attending the August class of next year. Did you sent your application already.That will be great for us to be study buddies. Do you have a email address maybe we can exchange.
- Aug 2, '04 by Veke-RN2BHey Angel,
I sent you a PM a few days ago with my e-mail address. Just checking to see you got it.

I have known about this program since it began last year. I also have a friend who was in the first program (last August) and has since graduated this past June. You can not go through this program without signing a contract with Tulane. There are no other options. You can get additional financial aid, but you MUST work for Tulane for two years. The reason that I have said beware is because they will tell you that you can work in any unit that has an opening at the time of graduation, However, that is NOT true. You are strictly trained in med surg and that is DEFINITELY where you will be working for the next two years. You do NOT get any other clinical rotation experience (Pediatric, critical care, LTC). This is not a bad thing if you want to work in med surg. If you want to do something else, then this may not be the school for you. I know that 10 months sounds GREAT, but if you are not happy after that time frame then was it worth it. I was thinking about going to this school (because I already have a degree) but I chose to go to another school with plenty of different clinical rotations because I want to be able to work wherever and on whatever unit when i finish. I am not discouraging any of you from this program, I am only telling you what I know to be true. The part that gets people angry is the fact that there ARE other units with openings at Tulane, and they WILL hire new grads in them, but the new grads that they are training through OLOL are strictly to fill their med surg openings. Even if you inquire, they will insist that you are able to go into any department you want to. Just be wise about the decision.

- Aug 3, '04 by jemommyRNQuote from Veke-RN2BI chose to go to Charity because it is hard. It has a lot of different clinical experiences that you are subjected to. I already have a Bachelor's so getting a BSN wasn't all that fascinating to me. I just wanted what I thought was the school that prepared me for whatever field I wanted to work in.What school did you go to instead if you don't mind me asking?
