University of Oklahoma-Accelerated BSN Program - page 82

Hi All, I'm new to this site and to the field of nursing. Has anyone gone to this school and if so, what did you think? I live in San Diego, CA, and there is an online program that this... Read More

    Yep, same email here and might I add that my heart is broken.

    What are everyone's thoughts on accepting a spot in this last cohort? I am not sure how I feel about this situation. I imagine if something happens and we get behind there will be no way to get caught up. Also, I wonder how this will effect their relationship with Sharp hospitals.

    Any thoughts?

    Those of us who don't get in the Spring 2010 class, what other programs are you considering? Anyone looked at the Entry Level MSN program at Cal State Fullerton...been thinking about that one too.

    Thoughts? Comments?

    I spoke to an advisor & ths is what I was told: the ABSN program is not being shut down. It is just that the degree will not be offered by Oklahoma University. They are working with SDSU to open up a similar program for CA. They anticipate no interuption in admissions for subsequent cohorts past Spring '10. However, the wrinkles are still being ironed out in this developement---so that's probaply why it hasn't been announced as of yet....good news for people like me looking to be admitted in the Fall of '10.

    Btw, USD has an entry level MSN program.

    Thanks for the info Miztee222. I was a little bit concerned because I applied for the spring 2010 cohort but I have one course still in progress (physiology) which I understand makes me less desirable than an applicant with all their courses completed. I wonder when they will make that announcement? At least that's some good news .

    I heard about this! What's going on? I heard its due to the economy...what did they tell the current students?

    By the way...my entire class is passing the NCLEX! I haven't heard of anyone failing yet and a lot of people have taken it so far. This says a lot about the education you are receiving...you should be excited!
    That's awesome!! I'm so excited for all of you!! Yeah, I am very excited about being almost done, only 2.5 more weeks!!! Crazy how fast it flew by. Did you find the ATI predictor to be pretty accurate? I got a 96% on it, and am hoping they're right. haha.

    Yeah, just like that email said, the economy. They didn't say if anyone was going to take over the program after OU has left, but assured people who are still continuing their program after the Spring 2010 cohort gets admitted that they will be taken care of. I'm kind of relieved I'm not going to have to deal with that, its so confusing as it is at the end of the semester.

    Congrats on being done, we'll be joining you all VERY soon! Yay!

    That's awesome news since I think I'm gonna have to reapply for summer 2010 because I'm still taking History and Nutrition classes. My heart sunk when I read that email but if it is with SDSU then all hail my alma mater

    I was so depressed today but your news just lightened up my day again ... thanks for the heads up Miztee222, even though it's unconfirmed, it's the hope that keeps me going

    I wonder if the prereqs will be the same for SDSUs program. I have been working on completing classes for OU program and hope
    SDSU is similar but who knows

    Oh darn. If SDSU does continue the program, I have a feeling that the admission process is going to be harder than OU. Their traditional program admits on a strict point system. I hope they don't do it that way. What do you guys think?

    Your welcome sungrl222
    The advisor said that she would contact me as soon as she kows more information and in parentheses she added "(which should be in a couple of weeks)"

    Hi sdgirl27
    I need to complete a few more pre-reqs also. When I contacted the advisor about this Spring 2010 last OU cohort issue she suggested that I hold off on taking any more pre-req classes until they know more about the exact requirements and pre-reqs for admission into the "possibly but more like probably" new SDSU affiliated ASBN program.

    I suspect that they will be the same pre-reqs needed to be amitted ino the actual BSN, but I shall wait 'n see.

    Hi Everyone, I applied for the Lawton-Duncan campus in Oklahoma, Far as OU's GPA system...I have a 3.5 Cumulative G.P.A, but my science is supremely low, because of the Chemistry and Microbiology, I had a D my first try in Chemistry and a C in Micro (Right now, I'm taking Chemistry again) I think i will be able to manage a B, but if I'm calculating my science G.P.A correctly that would make my Science G.P.A a 2.3, Do you think that even though the science G.P.A is low, that they will look at the Cumulative G.P.A also, and make a judgement based on that, or do they look at the science G.P.A solely, thanks in advance, Angela

    In a program info session thatI recently attended the did confirm that they use a point system & when I asked what is included in this point system they said:
    1) GPA on the last 60 units
    2) Science GPA &
    3) the answers to the application questions
