    I am currently in an online degree program with UW and am not impressed with their online science classes. I have realized that with the hard core science classes, I need to sit in a class and have someone actually teach me. No self study on these for me!

    Anyway, so I am looking to take my pharmacology class at a university. Just one class. It needs to be upper division 3000-400 level. Hopefully, something that is quality and not just chemistry related but something I can actually use in nursing. I will be living in Denver.

    Any ideas?

    I just received this email from the University of Ohio:

    Currently we do have state limitations and unfortunately we are not able to offer admission to Colorado students at this time. The email that was sent out was indeed a mistake and at this time we do not require an additional application from you because we cannot admit Colorado applicants at this time. Getting a DARS report takes some time currently because we have switched from quarters, to semesters and as a result the system that creates DARS reports is in the process of being updated to reflect these changes. We apologize that this process has be frustrating and if you would like a refund of your application fee you can follow the instructions at the end of the paragraph below.

    Currently due to new regulations from the Ohio Board of Nursing the RN-to-BSN program at Ohio University is required to add a clinical component to the curriculum. Because of this new clinical component, we have limited admission to our program at this time. Currently you must reside in California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia, or Wisconsin to be admissible to our program. Our records show that your permanent address is listed as Colorado which means that currently we are unable to admit you to our program at this time. The school of nursing is working diligently to open the program up to other states but currently we do not have a time frame as to when we will be able to accept students from Colorado. We apologize about any inconvenience this may have caused. We were informed about the new regulations a few weeks ago and are in the process of informing students about the change. If your state should become available for admissibility we will continue processing your application.
    If you would like to withdraw your application and request a refund of the application fee please send an email to and include in the subject line "Refund request". In the text of the message please include full name, date of birth, PID (if you have it) and a reason for your refund request.

    I am registered to start Fall of 2012. Signed up for all my classes, expecting my Dars to come any day (registered in Feb!), told it would be the end of July. First, we get hit with a tuition hike letter and next I get a letter from my advisor no DARS until late October!!! Has anyone else gotten their DAR yet?

    The reason I ask is because paying 100% OOP makes me think U of Wyo might be a better fit for me. Did anyone else compare the 2 programs?

    I hate to quit before I even get to the gate but this is a heck of a way to start a program. Am I the only one running into glitches or is anyone else hitting snags?

    I am wanting to take an online General Chem for my RN to BSN before I begin in the fall. Everywhere around here, in CO, requires that you retake all prereqs after 5 years, both online and locally. I am 10 years out of college and refuse to take pre algebra again! I married a math geek for a reason! 24/7 tutoring!!! I am also finding the same problem online. I registered at Rio Salado only to find out they require you to retake after 8 years. I have enough classes to take without RETAKING old classes! Grrr.... Any ideas on where to go? Thanks!!!

    I have had back surgery twice so am limited in the amount of nursing I do, however, there are places you can work that fill a big need. I work in pediatric home health and have for 8 years. I get to pick the clients I work with so I know ahead of time if they will be too heavy. I generally stick with under 30 pounds and it is easy on the back as you are not on your feet all day (lots of cuddling time!)
