    So do you think I should look into a different program? Isthere a program you recommend? Do you think the problems you had were due to the switchto semesters, or just faults with the program? I want to get my BSN, but I was trying to save money by going to cscc. Thanks for all your help. I'm sorry you had difficulties with your program.

    That's terrible about the problems you had at CSCC :/ I actually know a handful of people who transferred to COTC due to the lack of caring from the professors at CSCC. My coworker failed her first nursing test, asked the professor to set up a meeting to talk about the test/ questions she had missed/ test taking strategy and the professor told her maybe nursing wasn't for her and she should look into different options. She switched to COTC and I know she is now doing well. It's a little bit of a farther drive but if CSCC has the problems that some students have said, it might be worth it to at leat check out COTC. From what I understand they accept applications for nursing every semester as well. I'm not speaking from personal experience since I do not attend either school, but just a little input from some people who I have talked to. Good luck!

    Hello, I tried to PM you but the site will not allow it since I am a new member. I am starting my pre-req's now to prepare for applying to the nursing online track at CSCC. I would love to speak to someone who has completed the program!

    Hey I'm currently taking RN pre requisite courses at CSCC. I am on the associate RN degree track at the school and was wondering how soon after finishing with that degree and taking the nursing exam would I possibly get a job ?

    I would recommend getting a job as a PCA/PSA in a hospital throughout the program. It is difficult to get a job as an associate degree nurse in Columbus. The market is over saturated to begin with and Magnet stated that 80% of bedside nurses need a BSN by 2020 so there is a big push for BSN only. The James at OSU is BSN only - no exceptions. Main OSU is on a hiring freeze. I would apply for a RN-BSN program as soon as you are possibly able to. OU and OSU are both online. I did OSU but I know a lot of people who did OU as well. You can apply to at least OSU while still in school and would recommend it so you can start ASAP. Start networking. Make connections. And like I said, get a job in a hospital. My friends who were not already working in a hospital had to wait over a year (and after they finished their BSN) to get a job. I got a job within 24 hours of passing the NCLEX but that's because I was in the OSU system (had been throughout my entire nursing program), made a lot of connections at OSU, put forth a lot of effort of networking and talking to various managers and college of nursing faculty, and was already accepted to OSU's RN-BSN program.

    I was excited about starting the LPN to RN program this fall at Columbus State but now realize it may be next to impossible to get a job with my ADN:/ Working as a LPN in home health, I haven't been employed at a hospital in like 10 years. I will look into the OSU or OU RN to BSN route- before I finish CSCC program. Hopefully I can get a headstart on the next leg of my education. It seems like the bar keeps raising before I get a chance to reach it!
