Anyone going to or has attended Langston in Tulsa??? I will start in the fall and I was curious as to how intense the first semester and really the entire program is. During orientation, all of the administration were wonderful and so helpful, unlike some of the other nursing program adminstration that I have talked to at other schools. They didn't focus on the rules and regulations, but how they hoped that the students would do well and have a good experience. I really felt encouraged there. Anyway people- talk to me!

I am not personally going to Langston, but one of the girls from my chemistry class is starting in the fall. She is so excited to get going. She had the same feelings as you, they really helped her along and gave her some great ideas to make sure that she had time to study with her son.

Good luck and congrats!

I really like it. I am now in my second semester. Most of the upper level students try to pass on things to the new students like study guides ( which are like gold you will learn!), examples of research projects, etc to make life a little easier on you. Unlike other area schools, each semester you will have one day completely off. That really makes it easier to work and study. The staff is nice and the clinical sites are good. Hope you get accepted!!

You get a "day off" during the week at OU as well, at least the traditional program does...it may be used for community clinicals however, just depends on how you set up your times.

I am applying to Langston for the '08 fall semester as well. A friend that I know who has been in nursing for 20+ years says that all of the Langston students that come through her facility are good. She's been really impressed.

I am waiting to hear if have been accepted to Langston for Fall of 2008.

I had a couple of questions. I have been looking at the cirriculum and see that it is a lot of theory and research. I don't see a specific class for pharm or dosage calculations. Also which classes have clinicals? Where are the clinicals? Does anyone know if you start clinicals the first semester? It is better to have your cna or to go to the intro to nursing course in the summer. Also, how long does it take for them to let you know if you have been accepted from the March 1 deadline? As you can see patience is not one of my virtues.

Hello. You sound like I was when I applied and I was going crazy with questions. In the orientation to nursing for professionals, you will learn dosage calc, pharm, etc. Yes, there is alot of theory and research- especially the first semester. Remember that you are going for your BSN, not associates degree. There is more education involved. As far as clinicals, the first semester, health assessment will have clinicals. You will goto St. Francis if your in Tulsa. Each semester will have clinicals at different hospitals, clinics, etc. You will eventually goto just about every hospital in town. As far as the CNA stuff, I think it's better to just get your CNA instead of taking that course in the summer. I mainly think that because you could get your CNA in as little as a couple of weeks vs, taking that summer course. As far as getting your acceptance letter, I got mine in the begining of April and then you will have a orientation in May.

Good luck on everything!! If you have anymore questions, let me know!

Hello everyone!

I recently received the admission criteria from Langston University. I was wondering if those of you that have been accepted to their program had completed all of the pre-req's (BEFORE) the semester of application or can you currently be enrolled in any last remaining pre-req's during the semster you submit your application? Any information would be appreciated! Thanks!

When I turned in my appilcation, I was currently taking my last two classes- I guess that they don't mind, as long as your are finishing up by the time you will be ready to start actual nursing classes. Good luck!
