    Thanks to everyone for your help. My husband and I have decided that the money isn't worth 1-2 years of horrible conditions.
    I appreciate your honesty.

    Hi Motherofgirls,

    I'm at OU right now, so I wanted to answer what I could for you...

    I'm not sure about what a competetive GPA is, but I wouldn't worry about that too much. I know that they have several different criteria that they call into play, so your OU degree will help you, also OK residency helps. I can't remember exactly but I think they also look at science GPA seperately too, so you're good there.

    You can definitely finish up classes after you apply. You have a space to indicate that it will be completed in the Spring semester (applications are due Jan 15th for the traditional BSN program) and then you just make sure that they get an updated transcript when the class is finished.

    Good luck on your decision!

    Thank you for your insight! That's what I was afraid of.
    I appreciate it.

    Hi all,

    I'm curious to hear everyone's opinion about Midwest Regional Medical Center, good or bad. I'm looking at their scholarship program and while it's a lot of money, I have heard some negative things about them. Right now I just don't know what to do. Are there any nurses out there who are currently employed there? How are the working conditions?

    Thanks!

    Hi! I'm attending OU's traditional BSN program starting in the fall. I don't know a ton about how exactly everything will be yet, but will answer any questions that I can!

    Good luck!

    I thought I'd jump in here and join you all. I start Aug 25th at OU for the traditional BSN track. I'm a little older (will be almost 32 when classes start) and have a hubby and two kids (boy, 6 and girl, 3) so I'm a bit nervous to see how going to school full time will affect us.

    We already had one orientation a week after acceptance letters were sent and then we have another one in the beginning of Aug.

    Good luck to all of us!

    Paindoc -- Can you expound on why a CRNA has a far better lifestyle than an MD?? I know that I have my thoughts on why CRNA is better, but am curious to hear other opinions on the matter.
    Thanks.

    Hi there. I'm curious about anesthesiology as a career option and was wondering about the hours involved once employed. Do the flexible schedules that RNs have (3 12s, 4 10s, etc.) also apply to CRNAs or is the job more of a typical full-time day job? Also, if on salary, is overtime generally mandatory?
    Thanks!

    Thanks, ilona22, for the encouraging post. : ) What are your thoughts on someone who has a hubby and small kids going that route? That's really my only worry.... I don't mind studying a lot, but family does take some time haha!
    Thanks again!

    Oh, how many are accepted in the program??
    Thanks,

    Are there any other current OU - ABSN students that can chime in with an opinion on the coursework?

    I like the idea of the "block" style scheduling - one course concentrated at a time. Is it as time consuming as the previous poster said???? 10 hours of study on top of an 9 hour day????

    Has anyone had a positive experience there?

    Thanks,
    Jenny
