Ohio University RN-to-BSN Program - page 14

Since it seems that there's quite a bit of interest, I'm attempting to start a new thread devoted exclusively to the OU on-line RN-BSN program that will hopefully build on the comments on assorted... Read More

    DeltaRox- do you know which courses have proctored exams?

    I am not sure because the only class I am taking there besides nursing now is Nutrition. I was told by some coworkers that there are proctored exams.
    I am taking classes@Sinclair which I am NOT enjoying except the History of Pop/Rock Music(for an art credit) I go to "live class" but it IS offered online!
    My online classes at Sinclair are NOTHING like the OU experience. I guess the saying is true"you get what you pay for". If anyone is contemplating taking anything online at Sinclair feel free to email me privately. I can fill you in on the sad details of being treated like a second rate person. When I am done with my semester at SCC I am going to copy the letter from the Dean @ OU and send them a nice little letter...and telling them I am pursuing making some changes for future students there!
    I did take PHIL 130 Intro to Ethics...no proctored exams but wayyyyyy harder than any nursing class. All tests and BB posts. NO papers. I decided I loved papers after that class. I pulled a A- but not without lots of headaches. It REALLY makes you think!

    Looking at the classes required to graduate, I was starting to think I might need to retake microbiology. The class is a 201 level at OU and at my nursing school it was a 155. But....my nursing school is a partner with OU and I found a transfer credit listing and my microbiology is transferable!!! So, aside from the nursing classes, I may only need to take a fine arts class...which if available online I may take history of rock and roll music.
    Now to get my transcripts in. Hope/plan to start in the fall since I missed the application deadline for summer.

    I don't think too many since the nurses courses seem to allow you to take quizzes/test online timed. Only course so far that I've needed a proctor has been statistics.

    HX of Pop/Rock is available online at Sinclair Community College. I attend the class"live" and its pretty easy. I am not sure how the online version works. "live class" requires a weekly lecture. For example my class is 830 am to 11 and about 1030 he takes a break and gives you an inclass essay that is worth 10 points every week.Easy to get all the points if you just show up and not sleep through class(no one does that its pretty interesting). Steve Langemo teaches it and he is a pretty kewl dude. Also there is a weekly quiz worth 10 pts each. Then the only other requirements are a presentation(I am doing mine on Crosby ,Stills Nash and Young) worth 50 points and a performance review(you get to pick where) worth another 50. So the tests were easy also but I grew up in the 60's and know so far everything that was on them with little studying.
    I would not recommend taking anything else there though. My experience is that OU has ssssoooooooooooooo much more support from it's teachers.I get that you are a second rate student from my experience with other instructers at SCC all of which are adjunct teachers that take at lest 3 days to answer your emails then they just copy and past something that you already read as their way of "helping" you. I am glad i am only there a semester!

    Technically they require you to submit all of your prior work. I know someone that didn't but who knows if it would ever come back on them? Doubt it. They don't even have time to handle the admissions they have let alone be a detective to see if you took a class somewhere you flunked and do not want to send them a transcript!If you took anything after 2005 and it was a D- or above you can use it for elective credit by state law. It will NOT affect your GPA @ OU....so unless its an F I would definitely transfer it over. All you need is a 2.0 I believe to get admitted into OU. But I do not think they would like it if you transferred it over after you sent your original transcripts from anywhere else. I believe that would be a violation of the spirit of their requirements to have ALL of your transcripts up front. So you have to decide if you want to retake something just for your pride or suck it up and let them see you are human and you didn' perform up to your normal academic work. Things change. You would not be the first student to have a poor grade they are embarrased about!

    I would still submit all classes as they can still count towards your electives, which could mean less filler courses to complete your degree

    Electives at OU need to be the ones they specify in order to cost $153/credit hour otherwise the tuition is higher. There's a cultural class...Asian something or other that's $153//hr but if you choose something else it will run much higher so choose wisely. They accepted my D in statistics so I'm sure your DARS reports will be a nice surprise to you all. I had my final DARS before time to start classes...but the whole experience left me drained and very uncomfortable. It's a challenging institution to navigate to say the least!

    I do not know if this has been answered in the previous posting, but does OU require clinicals.

    Only the support courses. Ethics(PHIL 130 does NOT) I know Nutrition does and I believe statistics does but not sure about that. I really can not answer correctly other than I know the nutrition class does.

    How was Nutrition? Hard/easy? Lots of papers/quizzes?

    Thanks

    I guess it is not clear in my previous posts. I PLAN to take Nutrition. I am not at OU now I am at Sinclair taking support courses. Will return in October with target grad date Spring 2012 Commencement!(any spring commencement 2012 people out there?)
    I decided to take Sociology at Sinclair per their recommendation because they do not offer it online and it is the only required class they do not. So I am there this term taking other required classes as well. I then will take Statistics at Miami(attend classes). From what I understand the statistics online looked pretty tough to a coworker of mine that is very smart. Luckily she challanged OU and they accepted other Math classes she had taken prior. I am not that lucky. However, besides nursing and the Ethics class I took and the Nutrition class I plan to take winter intersession I am doing all other work at Sinclair or Miami(attend classes for some work).

    If anyone out there is in the Cincy area (or within a reasonable drive)and is considering taking advantage of the winter intersession to take nutrition please contact me. Perhaps we can split the cost of a proctor. It is my understanding there are maybe three exams and the proctor charged $45 or more and I may be not recalling htat correctly. It could have been double that. I have not checked into it yet to get more details so if anyone out there knows more about the Nutrition class please enlighten us. Also if you know more about the winter intersessions I would love info. It may be challanging to arrange protors during that time but wil good planning I am sure it could be done!
