Hi! Does anyone here have any more information about OU's Tulsa campus for the nursing program? The site doesn't seem to be working. I would like to know pre-req's and everything. (: Experiences, too. Thanks so much. My husband and I are thinking about moving to Tulsa (we currently live in Omaha, NE) after he gets finished with his nursing degree in a year and a half.

This is the website to OU-Tulsa nursing degree page. There are several different options at OU. Click on the one that fits your needs and then on the right top of that page you will see links to academic requirements and pre-reqs etc.
They are 100% cumulative GPA driven. 2.5 gpa was the minimum to apply this past fall. It may go up for next year, I'm not sure, but pretty much if you have anything below a 3.0 your chances of getting in are slim to none because it is so competitive. If you have a high GPA your chances are better. If you have any questions give them a call, they are pretty easy to speak with.
There are several different RN options in the Tulsa area. If you are looking for BSN your options (in town) are University of Oklahoma - Tulsa Campus, University of Tulsa, Oral Roberts University, and Langston University - Tulsa Campus. There are also many different ADN options in the Tulsa metro area.

I'm applying to the accelerated BSN program at OU Tulsa right now (summer 2011 start!). I've gone in person to meet with the nursing program advisors, and they are so nice and friendly and helpful! I've had nothing but positive experiences so far.
Just to echo the previous poster, the advisors told me that the most important 2 things on your OU-Tulsa nursing school application are 1) having *all* your pre-reqs done and grades on your transcript/s. Try to have nothing "in progress" on your application - that way they don't have to take a risk on you doing poorly or needing to withdraw and then being ineligible to start the nursing program 2) GPA. GPA is a huge deal. Get it as high as you can.
My husband and I relocated to Tulsa from Lincoln, NE a few years back! I miss Nebraska, but Tulsa's not a bad place at all.
