    thank you so much..you are always so helpful
    I was asking about the blackberry because someone said to make sure a phone is allowed to be used on the floor (this if i decide not to get a PDA instead)

    do you have any idea what payment plans they have? monthly etc ??? how much?
    sorry I am asking so many questions
    thank you
    My understanding is that you can pay as much or as little as you want up to a certain date and then the full amount at that time is due, or whatever the balance is remaining on your account. Like if you feel like paying $20 one month, then $2K the next, so be it.

    I always carried my phone around, I didn't use it, just had it in case of emergencies b/c of my son. Otherwise, they didn't have an issue, just don't use your camera. And my understanding is, that you can't/shouldn't have your phone on any psych floor. Privacy issues. Other than that, no biggie.

    I've only heard good things about this program for those that meet the requirements. If I had had a previous degree I would have gone for it of Nationals program.

    Hi guys, I hope you can help me. I am just looking into the U of OK ABSN program right now and had some questions that I e-mailed to the dept a week ago and still haven't gotten a response, so maybe you can enlighten me.
    My main question is when do you have to actually be on-site and how often? My understanding of the program is that it is a distance program, but do they call it that simply because there are so many satellite locations? I'm so confused. I live in Kansas and there is no way I can travel that distance, it may not seem far, but as a single mom with a 3 year old, it's quite a trek. My second question is if you have to have a previous bachelor's degree. Somewhere on the website I got that impression. I don't remember where.

    Thanks in advance for the help!! :bowingpur

    The majority of the people on this thread are in california. If I'm not mistaken... I think there is an acutal OK version of this thread somewhere. Sorry, can't help with the Kansas to OK campus questions.

    I spoke with someone earlier today and she is hoping the committee will meet on July 2nd. She will then immediately input their decisions and letters will go out about a week later (hopefully around July 10th). She also said there were 71 or 72 Glendale applicants for around 24 spots.

    Hi, I just got an email and they are sending out acceptance letters (at least for SD location) on July 8th. From her previous email, she also mentioned that 54 students will be admitted for Fall 09. I was an alternate for the Summer 09 and re-applied for Fall 09. I really am hoping to get in the Fall 09 cohort.

    She didn't mention any meetings. Did you submit your FAFSA application yet? If so, did you get an award letter yet?
