I am a prospective nursing student interested in getting my second bachelor's in nursing at the OUHSC in Tulsa. I am curious about recent RN graduates and how many have received job offers, are employed, unemployed, etc. Also, would it help to begin volunteering at St. Francis (I have heard many good things about their program) in the meantime while I complete my pre-reqs at TCC? I am just so worried about going to school for 2 and 1/2 more years to be in the same position I am in now (early childhood education degree without a teaching job).
Any help is greatly appreciated!
Read the reply. I agree with you totally, that would leave a bad taste in my mouth as well. Just remember a few things:
1. You're just another number to ANY school...and its all about the money to them. The more money they can get, the better off they are...hence, the different pre-reqs.
2. Don't let people get you off course of what you want. I've noticed that in nursing programs there are a LOT of alpha personalities and the all think they know EVERYTHING! Don't let that get to you...just stay focused.
As far as names.....************* in the main Nursing office is the 'queen bee' so to speak. She might be the one you talked to. She's the one that ranks everyone and determines who gets in. Sometimes she's a little dry, but a great lady overall. ******* is my advisor and one of the Nursing instructors. I've only spoken with her once, but she was very nice!
Like I said before, I've also got a degree....so I'm going back and taking the science classes to be eligible. You should really consider RSU...its a great program. However, a caveat about the ranking system to get in. They really give more weight to those that have taken all their classes there (especially the ranked classes: Dosage, A&P, Biology, etc) Even if you have all A's in these classes from other colleges, if someone else has the same grade...they will get in before you because they took the classes on RSU campus.
This spring they had the most applicants ever for their program (approx. 350 from what I was told). I don't see it getting any better....but still easier than to get into than OU or TCC.
