    I am waiting on an acceptance letter for OCC's nursing program for 2018 right now! I'm nervously googling the GPAs of people who were accepted and feeling pretty nervous, but hopefully the HESI scores are weighed heavily.

    Hi, I've applied too. They don't send out letters till beginning of March, right?

    When I met with a counselor I was told that it take about 5 weeks from Jan 1, 2018 to go through all of the apps. The letters are all mailed at the same time and they have until March 15, 18. I am also waiting : )

    I also read in the 2017 posts that most letters came March 16, 2017 and for the year before around March 11, 2016. So it looks like we will be waiting for a minute.

    Yes they really are waiting till March to send them out
    Did you find another feed post for this year? Previous years had lots of feed that I enjoyed to read but I can't find a group for this year. Ty

    I put in my application in this Fall for the 2018 program also. The counselor told me that if there are more applicants than spots we will find out in March, if there is more spots than applicants we will find out in February. From reading past applicant discussions and what people I know in the program told me it sounds like we will get a letter in March. The way you get in is based on a points system they use based on your GPA, if you repeated courses or had any transferred. What you scored on the HESI isn't calculated. You just have to pass it.

    Does anyone know how is the program? How many days of lecture, clinicals and lab? I know the classes run 7 weeks. Do classes run through summer too? Anyone knows the details? Ty

    Haven't heard anything about the program and how it is. Do you know how many points people have been accepted with or what is the lowest score?

    Hey guys, I also applied to the program for the 2018,2019 start. Hopefully I get in and get to meet you guys. Anyone thinking about doing the fall start?

    Yes. Hopefully fall. But it Sint up to us. When you gry the letter black itll say whether youre accepted and which semestr you start. I thought before they gave preference which semester you'd like.
