I lived in Tulsa back in 200-02 and lived about a mile or so from ORU. So when I was accepted to nursing school and moved back to Tulsa, I moved back to the same area, considered "South Tulsa". (91st and Lewis) And it has changed...a lot. It is not safe and some what scary at times. I don't even take my dog outside at night by myself.
The apts. I live in had a shooting a few weeks ago, my license plate has been stolen off my car (while parked next to a Sheriff car in my apt parking lot), and my apt. is a roach haven. I clean obsessively but can't get rid of them since my neighbors seem to be okay with sharing their apt. with the roaches.
I reported my license plate and the officer told us to move out as soon as possible. He said the area from 71st on up is not safe anymore.He also told us not to shop at the walmart at 81st and Lewis because it is so unsafe. He recommended moving further south or getting a house further south. Or moving into an apt. that is a gated community or more expensive. Unfortunately with us being in school we are unable to do so. Instead as soon as our lease is up (43 days and counting) we are moving to sapulpa about 20 minutes away. The rent is more reasonable, what we pay for an apt. we are renting a nice home for. The crime rate is lower and it just "feels" safer.
Not trying to be the barrier of bad news I just wish I had someone let me know what I was moving into. The officer did give us a few recommendations if you like let me know.
I was told by one LTC that they start their LPN out at $18 or so.
