Just wanted to reach out and try to connect with other's planning on doing Oklahoma City Community College's BADNAP program starting in June 2015. I would also love feedback and suggestions from past BADNAP students! I've heard over and over how difficult it is, but it must be doable since I also know students graduate from it every year.

I graduated in 2012 from the BADNAP program. It was hard, but doable. I definitely don't regret it. I know other people working on their RN's, and they spend years getting the pre-reqs done, then applying, then spending two more years in the program. I don't have the patience for that. By the time they take boards, they have forgotten the stuff from the first year. Good luck!

Val-Kaye,

Yeah, I'm a new single mom, so I don't have the luxury of taking years to get my RN. Better to go through 10 months of hell. :-) Do you have any words of wisdom to pass along? How did employers respond to the degree from OCCC - did you feel prepared? And, if you feel comfortable, what can a new RN expect per hour? Congrats on finishing the program!
