Hey everyone I just found out that I was accepted to the OU-OCCC collaborative agreement. Will anyone else be attending that program next year or does anyone know anything about the program?

If the OU-OCCC CBSN is anything like the OU-TCC CBSN is, I agree. We began with 21 students and now have 12. Ditto to everything that was said about not being treated fairly and having to fight for you grades. I made my first B's this year, and both of them were somewhere in the 92.9-92.98 range. Believe me, graduate school is very important to me as well and I feared for my GPA (that sounds very shallow and selfish, but it was a concern of mine, secondary to learning everything I possibly could about being a competent nurse). Anyway, I feel that most of the "learning" that happens is because you're teaching yourself, but the pro of this situation is that it does teach you a great degree of self-sufficiency. Unfortunately this is something I'm hearing repeated from the OU collaborative and distant sites. No changes were made for us but hopefully for those next year there will be something better. Just be prepared to fight for your rationale, your grade, and, well, for yourself. Best of luck and congrats on beginning the journey!
