    Brooke A NP program or CRNA program is a graduate program. Once you are finished with your BSN you can pursue yout MSN as a nurse practioner or a Nurse Anesthesia program. These programs can have other requirements but as far as basic needs you need your BSN. Once I complete my BSN I will be enrolling into an NP program. I do believe that I may pursue a CRNA degree once my children are grown as you cannot work FT with most CRNA programs. Who knows things change in life all the time but that is the plan.

    Tiffany I would just check to see what math course is required prior to taking Statistics. If you are able to take stats now then do so YOU WILL NEED THIS course. If you are at a Community college then you will need to find a 4 year school to take Junior English.I am not planning on taking all courses through OU. The local schools around here are much cheaper. But some courses are a matter of convenience. 5 weeks is pretty nice when you are just wanting to get done NOW

    Just curious what they accepted as a JR Level comp requirement? Personally I think they need to move this to a portfolio requirement. Seems ludacrous that you have to write scholarly papers prior to the deadline to take this course.

    They do NOT require a math placement... at least that is what my(not so sure I believe her) advisor told me. Some prior math classes(collegiate level)may meeth their requirements. I know one person who challanged them and got the requirement to take stats waived....

    To answer the question regarding what they will accept...even if it does not meet one of their requirements those hours will be accepted for electives...so all is not lost!

    I was told you do NOT have to take a math placement test and I have NO prior collegiate math credits!
    FYI you CAN try to test out of JR level comp. I am certainly going to try. I know someone who tried and barely failed it but hey its worth a shot. She did this on NO notice. Drove that very day...no rubric no prep and she is taking it again when I take it this summer. It is offered every quarter. So I believe it will be possible to pass. They gave her an article from the New York Times and asked her to write an essay.

    TiffanyM:I have taken english 1 and 2 at a university and it will NOT count as Junior level english. It will count toward your Freshman English requirement. This is what they( OU) have listed on their site for Math and English.I have posted the link as well

    Quantitative Skills. You must demonstrate or acquire an acceptable level of quantitative skills to satisfy graduation requirements. The University uses your ACT or SAT (see chart below) math score to determine your skill level for placement or exemption unless the Tier I quantitative skills requirement has been satisfied by transfer or advanced placement credit. Students in some majors are required to have a math placement regardless of transfer or advanced placement credit in order to meet prerequisite requirements. The choice of the course in which you should enroll, if any, depends on your major, catalog of entry and math placement, and should be discussed with your academic adviser.

    Students without ACT scores, SAT scores, advanced placement, or a transferable math course must take an online math placement test. Direct questions to the placement testing coordinator, University College, 740.593.1935. Regional campus students should contact their student services offices.



    Math Placement Level Minimum ACT Math Score needed Minimum SAT Math Score needed First Course
    DV1 < 15 < 379 MATH 101 - Basic Mathematics
    DV2 16 380 MATH 102 - Elementary Algebra
    PL1 20 480 MATH 109 - Consumer Mathematics or MATH 113 - College Algebra or MATH 120 - Elementary Topics in Mathematics or PHIL 120 - Principles of Reasoning or PSY 120 - Elementary Statistical Reasoning
    PL2 24 560 MATH 163A - Introduction to Calculus or MATH 115 - Pre-Calculus or PSY 221 - Statistics for the Behavioral Sciences
    PL3 30 680 MATH 263A - Calculus I or MATH 266A - Calculus with Applications to Biology I





    Any Ohio University MATH course numbered 109 or above, PHIL 120 , 120 , or 221 satisfies the Tier I quantitative skills requirement (1M). To enroll in any MATH or other quantitative skills course, you must either place at the specific level required for that course or satisfy the appropriate prerequisites.

    Placement levels are:

    DV1 (Developmental): Placement at this level indicates inadequate preparation to enroll in a Tier I quantitative skills course. You must complete MATH 101 before enrolling in MATH 102 . Students receiving this recommendation who plan to major in an area requiring advanced math (e.g. engineering, or business majors) should discuss their choices with the faculty or professional advisers.

    DV2 (Developmental): This level indicates inadequate preparation to enroll in a Tier I quantitative skills course. You must complete MATH 102 before enrolling in a Tier I quantitative skills course.

    PL1 (Placement Level 1): Placement at this level indicates preparation for any of the following Tier I-fulfilling courses: MATH 109 , 113 , 117 , 118 (available only at regional campuses and through correspondence), MATH 120 (early childhood, middle childhood, and intervention specialist education majors only), MATH 147 , PHIL 120 , PSY 120 .

    Note: Students who need MATH 163A should enroll first in MATH 113 and then take MATH 163A. Students who need MATH 263A should begin with MATH 113 followed by MATH 115 and then MATH 263A.

    PL2 (Placement Level 2): Placement at this level indicates preparation for Level 1 courses as well as these additional Tier I-fulfilling courses: MATH 115 (recommended only for students who plan to enroll in MATH 263A or MATH 266A ), MATH 150 , MATH 163A , MATH 250 , PSY 221 .

    Note: MATH 115 is the prerequisite course for MATH 263A and MATH 266A. MATH 115 is not recommended unless you plan on enrolling in those MATH 263A/MATH 266A. Students cannot earn credit for both MATH 163A and MATH 263A. MATH 163A is not a prerequisite for MATH 263A.

    PL3 (Placement Level 3): Placement at this level demonstrates quantitative skill competence sufficient to fulfill the Tier I quantitative skills requirement. If your major requires that you enroll in a quantitative skills course, placement at Level 3 indicates preparation for MATH 263A (or MATH 266A for natural science majors) and any course in Levels 1 or 2. A level 3 placement does not guarantee a waiver of college or major requirements in mathematics. Contact your college office to see if a college waiver is in effect for your major.




    English Composition. A first-year composition course and an advanced junior-level composition course are required. Any of ENG 151 , 151A , 152 , 153 , 153A , or 153B will satisfy the University's General Education first-year writing requirement (1E). These courses are alternative, not sequential, courses in writing. You should select your course by looking at the descriptions and choosing the one that appeals to you. (All regional campus students are given a placement test.)

    In your junior year, you must take an approved advanced writing course unless you demonstrate advanced writing proficiency by passing the junior-level exemption exam. The following courses fulfill the junior-level composition requirement:

    Anthropology: ANTH 356J

    Art: ART 300J

    Business Administration: B A 325J

    Classics and World Religions: CLWR 385J

    Communication: PRCM 325J

    Economics: ECON 310J

    Education - Curriculum and Instruction: EDCI 331J

    Engineering Technology: ET 385J

    English: ENG 305J , 306J , 307J , 308J , 309J , 384J

    Environmental and Plant Biology: PBIO 418J

    Film: FILM 344J

    Geography: GEOG 375J

    Health Sciences: HLTH 370J

    History: HIST 301J , 396J

    Human and Consumer Sciences Education General: CONS 345J

    Industrial Technology: ETM 370J

    Interdisciplinary Arts: IART 360J

    Journalism: JOUR 441J

    Modern Languages: M L 321J , 370J

    Music: MUS 320J

    Philosophy: PHIL 301J

    Political Science: POLS 305J

    Recreation and Sport Science: REC 370J

    Social Work: S W 370J

    Sociology: SOC 356J

    These courses are marked in this catalog with the designation (1J) as the general education code.

    If you are a transfer student, your requirements are determined by when you enroll and the number and type of credit hours transferred.

    You can google the Ohio Board of Regents to check the date regarding if they MUST take ur D for a credit. I believe the cut off is after 2005 they MUST take a D- or above IN OHIO for transfer credit. Did not apply to me but it was a little FYI I found out about along the way that might help someone. You HAVE to challenge them they will TRY to say "NO".(i.e they want your $$$$$)

    Quote from SShannon81
    so I had a D in Sociology and they are stating that because it is a Degree specific course that I may have to retake it. They are double checking for me though. They also stated that my DARS is still not complete. I have alot of chemisrty courses that they had not given me credit for.
    1)I will have to take micro biology-but Im gonna check to see if I can possibley test out of it since OU does not require lab
    as far as courses that have transferred and what they used my courses towards
    english 1&2 will cover you Freshman English Tier 1, (your Tier 1 courses will be Freshman English, Statistics and Junior level eng course
    For my tier 2 courses they accepted A & P 1and 2 Natural Sciences
    and Psychology 101 for Social Sciences

    If you get a DARS report before you start you will be the first one I have ever heard that does so. I believe it is a time/financial issue. They have priority for students that are enrolled ...not prospective students. does not make it right but its their reality and unfortunately we have to live with it.


    Quote from SShannon81
    well good luck to you Mt.Steel. Im gonna keep pressing forward and hope all is well for me. Im gonna register for 300 on wed.I attempted to do so today but was unable. Im not holding my breath for DARS report before class starts but I can hope.Supposed to be getting financial aid award letter in april so we shall see. I wish all the info you needed was in one place but I find myself still getting a bit turned around with their site. Not all the info is the same for diierent programs. and there is just not ONE DEFINATE place to go and get it. It is frustrating at times and I feel like i waste alot of time just browsing the site for the info i need.Im hoping it will get better or atleast easier. We shall see

    Really? I hope this is not the case but after dealing with OU for some months now, this should really not be surprising.

    I applied back in February for admission to the summer session. OU has had everything since early March and after not hearing anything for weeks I finally tried to call (you have to leave a voice-mail, there's no way to actually reach anyone in admissions apparently) but then had to be content with sending e-mails. After much prodding on my part, I finally got a response about 2 weeks ago - an e-mail that said they have a new admissions process and I should not to expect to hear anything more from them until perhaps June.

    So after all that time, all I'm going to get from OU in June is an admissions decision? I'm going to be expected to enroll and start the program without having received an evaluation even though more than 5 months will have elapsed? If that's really the case, it's somewhat surprising that anyone actually winds up enrolling in their program.

    OU student: I listed the courses that they accept as junior level english along with what they accepted for math. It makes no sense that we would have to take a math placement test since we are distance learning program but it does makes sense that inorder to take STATS you have to meet the requirements for the course work prior. It would appear that there are requirements to met before you can take STATS.AS far as courses that would compare.OU general education requirements state that a course like Calculus would be an equiv to STATS. OU also has a ton of Junior Eng courses. I have already picked the class I want.
    OUstudent I would like to know if there general education course cost the same as their nursing courses?I sent you an email but I never heard anything back from you.

    Hey Chuckster, I knew back in Feb they had changed the way there were doing admissions.They even switched to paper admissions for a time while the computer admission program was being worked on .I really dont think they will make you wait as long if you are to be enrolled in June.The secratary @ the nursing school was very helpful with all the questions I had regarding the program.Try that Chuck. Besides all that I have found better success with just calling the school of nursing directly. I have to say that admissions wasnt very helpful. Shedrick did help some when I was trying to get ahold of advisors and no one seemed to want to answer the phone over there. I was starting to wonder if the school was actually in business. To date I have still been unable to get ahold of my so called academic advisor, buit I was able to get quite a bit of info from school of nursing.
