Hey guys. I think I'm gonna apply to Nicholl's, I just had some questions about the class structure. I would be commuting from Metairie (about an hour or so drive). Is the classroom component of the nursing classes taught everyday or only MW, TR? Or are they offered online? Also, which hospitals are used for clinicals and what are the typical hours?
I've been waiting for someone to reply back about this question but seems like charity and lsu are the only schools spoken of on the Louisiana forum.
I'm applying to Nicholls LPN-RN program still waiting on my PAX results. But best thing I can tell you is to contact one of the nursing advisors there. If all pre-reqs have been met you'll need to attend an information session first before applying as well. From what I saw so far on Banner is that it won't be M-F but still most of the week and the fundamentals class starts at 630 some days. That might be clinicals I'm not sure. But talk to one of the advisors they are the best ones to get info from.
I actually have decided not to apply due to the long commute. (I live in New Orleans) it's just not a feasible option for me, especially having a toddler.
I applied to Holy Cross though. It's torturous waiting for letters.
Good luck! Yea the commute will be long for me as well it's about 45 mins from Laplace. I looked into holy cross as well they require more pre-reqs from what I remember and are very pricey.
Yes, OLHCC is a little more expensive and did require different pre-reqs... However, I actually already have a BS and MPH so I had all of the pre-reqs covered. SLU and LSU were both going to make me retake stuff before I could apply.
I would of had to do an extra semester just of theology, philosophy, morality, and speaking. I really don't see how many transfer students can apply unless you're from a previous private school that required those classes. And the cost of one semester there will be almost the total cost for Nicholls' program.
