i am currently a traditional junior (non-accelerated and non-bridging) at OU-Tulsa and will graduate in May 2009. i have nothing but good things to say about the program. the professors are really helpful and pretty much have an open door policy and the clinical experiences have been great. you are in the hospital your first semester along with community experiences. this semester we got to draw numbers and sign up for which community experiences we wanted. OU students do their hospital clinical experiences at Hillcrest, St. John's, St. Francis, and Okmulgee (for those that want to do rural nursing--you volunteer for this rotation).
your jr. year fall semester you will do just a med/surg clinical rotation, your jr. year spring semester you will do a more skilled med/surg rotation and also an OB rotation. the fall of your sr. year you will be in critical care/icu and also in psychiatry. in the spring of your senior year your give them like your top 3 choices and i'm pretty sure you act as if you are a new grad and you have a preceptor at the hospital you are at and you have way more hours to complete than previous semesters.
as far as clinical experiences go, you will either do the longitudinal program (which is where you work at the OU physicians clinic near hillcrest and you do this community experience for all 4 semesters and you follow the same patients long term who have no health insurance and come to this free clinic with chronic illnesses--i think they only take 8 volunteers from each class--jr.'s and sr,'s). the other choices are the bedlam evening clinic, bedlam wound care clinic, bedlam diabetes clinic, healthy paseo's, OU physician family med clinic, bixby public schools and i'm sure they will have others by next fall.
i do know that the professors said at the beginning of the year that the OU-Tulsa nursing program
is the most competitive program of all of the OU Nursing programs
(OKC, Lawton, and Tulsa). I think the acceptance rate at OU-Tulsa is like 1 in 5 but i'm not sure. i also think that they use a point system. there are no interviews, just the online application.
i would highly recommend the program to anyone and we were told that the graduating class of 2007 had a 100% NCLEX pass rate (at least the Tulsa campus did, I can't speak for the others).
hope this helps in your decision making and good luck in the application process!
