    i graduated from the absn program at the duncan, ok campus. i was disappointed with the lack of organization and the "cookie cutter" curriculum, considering the reputation of the university of oklahoma.

    many of the instructors had just received their advanced degrees in nursing and lacked the self-confidence to work with students who also held equivalent advanced degrees (in different fields). since the program is new, the nclex pass rates are not available. since it's conception, the site has not had stable leadership and it's current director is not student/staff friendly (to put it mildly, she is awful).

    i can not speak to the other ou-absn programs, but i strongly suggest anyone considering or accepted to the duncan site, look at other alternatives.

    I'm not in that program, btu considered gunning toward it, until I had a fiew nurses I work with say that that program is NOT for people who are looking to get their hands dirty. In other words, they girls that come out of there are too 'cutesy' for work. :imbar

    I can't speak for the Duncan campus but I externed with many OUABSN Tulsa graduates and found them to be extremely knowledgeable, and spoken very highly of by other staff. I don't think specific programs put out specific types of students, I realize there can be a mass stereotype but try to look past that. Even the traditional programs are really unorganized and from day to day it's a challenge to keep up with what's going on. There are several ABSN students that couldn't deal with the program and joined the traditional. It's not for everyone, but some people I've heard have done it with a family and FT job (they must have never slept!).
