Specializes in Psych, Med-Surg, Critical Care, NICU.

Hello all...I'm fairly new to this site and I finally figured out how to post messages..Yay!!...:yeah:...Anyway, I received a phone call today stating I've been accepted into Oklahoma City University's fall 2010 BSN program..How exciting!!!...I was wondering if anyone else has been accepted into OCU's fall 2010 Nursing program as well...If so, spread the word...I would love to know if anyone else will be joining me this fall...And if so Congrats...:nurse:

My girlfriend, Paulette, is starting there this Fall as well. She will be in the Accelerated track I believe. Congrats!! I'm just starting pre-reqs so I won't be starting until at least Fall 2011. Good Luck to you!!

That's really good!!!...I'm sure she's excited as well...I hope to see her there and you too...I was also accepted into OSU-OKC's 1+1 Nursing program for the fall semester and I'm considering that as well...I just received the letter today right after I enrolled in my classes at OCU...God works in mysterious ways...lol...Good luck to the both of you with your future studies...We're on our way!!!...:nurse:

Good luck... I heard the program is a tough-y.

Specializes in Junior Year of BSN.

I was accepted to start my Junior year there but declined because they wanted me to repeat Foundations of Nursing which I thought was crazy since I received an A and had a 4.0 in my last semester of my sophomore year at my other university which consisted of Micro, Pharm, Foundations and Chemistry. I am now going to a different BSN program which is University of Tulsa and I like how things are here.

That's really good!!!...I'm sure she's excited as well...I hope to see her there and you too...I was also accepted into OSU-OKC's 1+1 Nursing program for the fall semester and I'm considering that as well...I just received the letter today right after I enrolled in my classes at OCU...God works in mysterious ways...lol...Good luck to the both of you with your future studies...We're on our way!!!...:nurse:

FutureNurse1982 - Congratulations on your acceptance or should I say acceptances?! Would you mind sharing the process of being accepted into the 1+1 program? From what I understand, you apply to OSU-OKC and then they choose whether to offer the 1+1 program to the nursing applicant. Is that correct? Also, do you happen to know the cutoff of points and/or GPA for students accepted into OSU-OKC's nursing program? I might apply for nursing schools for the Spring 2011 semester but may not because I'm lacking a few pre-reqs. I know the program is sooo competitive so I'm thinking maybe I'm better off waiting to apply for the fall of next year. Any information would be great - thanks!

To Sayra...Thank you for the congrats..That was really sweet, I really appreciate that...As far as the 1+1 program at OSU-OKC goes, you pretty much have to apply for the regular program and if you don't get accepted you have to have enough points to be considered for the 1+1 program. Taking most of your basics at OSU-OKC will boost up your points as well... I took all of my basics at OSU-OKC, applied to the nursing program twice and didn't get in...I received a letter (after being rejected from the spring nursing program) stating I was a qualified candidate for the 1+1. I assumed I had enough points, but not enough to get in the actual program..I never called to see how many points I had because I didn't care, after awhile..lol...I applied before and after finishing my basics...I believe if you have all of your sciences done, you're more likely to get in...Not to discourage you or anything, but yes the program is extremely competitive..A friend of mine took most of her basics and sciences in Florida and some at OSU-OKC...Her GPA was higher than mine and she still didn't get into OSU-OKC's nursing school...She applied 5 or 6 times..No Lie!! She didn't even get an offer for the 1+1 program...That's one thing I didn't like about OSU...We still don't know why she didn't get in...But I'm assuming it's because she didn't take most of her classes there...And one thing I do know is the point system goes up every semester..When I applied the first time the lowest points were 85....I think I had 83 at that time..What basics do you have left??..If you don't mind me asking...

OCCC has a 1 + 1 program with a vocational school. If you don't get into OCCC then you do a year for your LPN and transfer to OCCC to finish the RN. Is OSU's 1+1 similar? If you got accepted to OCU- go for it! congrats!

to futurenurse1982: i have anatomy and physiology left...i know, the two biggest sciences (in my opinion anyway)! thank you for all of the information - it was very helpful. (i sent you a private message by the way) it does get discouraging sometimes but i know i'm not the only one who feels that way! it helps to hear people talk about their application experiences whether they were accepted or not.

and thank you jojo10 for your information too :)

Goodmorning Sayra...I can't send private messages yet because I have less than 15 post...I'm not going to mention any of the Professors names, but I will tell you that taking Anatomy and Physiology at OSU-OKC is not easy, but managable..As far as Anatomy goes, there's a lot of studying involved and I recommend you go to all of the open labs...Anatomy at OSU-OKC has a lecture and a lab portion...The crazy thing about that is the classes don't match...You'll be learning one thing in lecture and learning something totally different in lab, but when you think about it it all comes together some point in time...You get 2 different teachers for the lecture and lab...I'll just say this, study study study...For me, lab was a lot easier than the lecture...That depends totally on the person...I got a D the first time I took Anatomy...But took it again the following summer and got a B...It was a lot easier for me the second time because I learned a lot the first time...Some people have taken it 3+ times, I think that's due to not studying like they should...I believe you can pass the first time...I think I failed the first time because I took it with Physiology and other classes...(Trying to rush)

As far as Physiology goes...The lab was easier than the lecture, as well...lol...I had the same Professor for the lab and lecture so that made it easier for me...The labs in Physiology were fun to me too...The lecture portion requires a lot of studying and critical thinking...We were given 2 take home test (in lecture) and the first one was so hard I didn't think I would pass it, but the 2nd test was a breath of fresh air...The tests in the lab were a piece of cake...seriously..We knew what to study and everything...I got a B the first time taking it...My Professor for Anatomy lecture and Physiology is the head of the entire science Dept at OSU-OKC...Hopefully that will give you a heads up of who I'm talking about...

As for both classes, even if you make a low grade in one portion and a higher grade in the other, your grade should balance out giving you hope of passing...If you decide to take those classes at OSU don't be nervious or anything...It's not as bad as people may say..It can be done...I see you've already taken Mirco and Chem...If you did that and passed you can do this...And in my opinion, Anatomy and Physio is a lot easier than Micro and Chem...:)...Sorry so long...lol...

Thank you JoJo10 for the appreciation...Yes, I decided to attend OCU this fall...I start Aug 23rd...I thought the cost would give me a heart attack...lol...But they hooked me up with scholarships and work study options...I'm excited!!..

Thank you again...

Thanks you soooo much for that information. I forgot about the min. posts in order to PM...I really appreciate you taking the time to reply back with all of that wonderful information!! I would be so lost without this networking site. I can't wait to start nursing school and pass along my experiences with everyone here to "pay it forward" and hopefully help other pre-nursing students like myself. :)

Thanks for the encouragement! Micro and Chem weren't fun but weren't terrible so that makes me feel better about A&P!

hi! I was also accepted into OCU for august as well. I got the scholarship but how did you get the work study option? Also I am at total loss of how to come up with the funds! I just received my fee bill and it's 14,680.00! I talked to a financial aid counselor and he said that I will probably have to pull a private loan from a private institution for this. I will be relocating to oklahoma and i know that my total cost of living, tuition, etc will be about $ 85,000. I just do not know what to do? Someone please help me, I have never applied for a loan before so i have no idea where to start. any suggestions would be awesome!

Hi someone sent me a PM regarding my tuition bill. Sorry I can not respond through PM because I am new :mad: The fee bill I received was for the traditional program not the rn to bsn. The amount was only for the semester not for the entire program. I will be graduating in May 2012, meaning that I will be paying ~ 60k ( 4 semesters) in tuition only. Not including books, equipments, uniform, housing, etc. Golly how I wish that amount was for the entire program!! BTW I would love to meet everyone before class begins. Does anyone have a facebook setup for c/o 2012?

Hello Hopeful 27..I will be attending OCU this fall as well...I wasn't going to attend OCU because the cost was so high, but I received a phone call from the Associate Dean of KSN...She told me if they offer me a special benefits package will I reconsider my decision...She had me talk to a woman I think in the Fin aid office...She offered me work study, a transfer scholarship, and a perkins loan on top of my other loans and grants...She told me in order to keep my benefits I have to maintain my 3.0 GPA...I recommend you contact the Associate Dean of KSN to see what they can do to help you...I know your situation...They have many options you can choose from...:)

Thank you so much future nurse! I'll be seeing you in August =)

hi hopeful... i don't know if you will see this post because your last post was in julyish... but I too plan on attending okcu this spring semester in the accelerated program. I'm actually visiting the campus this thursday so that I can get some questions answered. I am curious about the scholarships. Did you get one? and I saw one scholarship that would pay tuition but you had to commit to working a hospital in Ok for 2 years. Do you know anything more about that. Also.... how are classes going? Is there anything different about the program that you didn't expect?

Hi! Got the message through my email so yup received it! Well I only received one scholarship and it was the one with the $ 500 per semester, I believed that I could have gotten more if I tried but in the end I was too stressed out with moving and everything else going on. When you visit the campus on Thursday, make sure you speak to Dr. ******, she will definitely help you any way she can on getting extra scholarships. Make sure you tell her that you are very interested in the program but the only problem is that financially you're a little hesitant. She will try all means to get you the help you need financially. I am unsure about any work study, but I have heard many students doing this.

Initially I was very hesitant applying to this school because of all the bad reviews on here but after attending, I really like this school. The professors are really helpful, they try to help you as much as they can.

Classes are going pretty well for me so far but then again it's only been two months. You have to keep up though or you will fall way behind. It's pretty intense but if you're fully committed you will do well. Just one thing though, if you make a 74.9, you fail the course. What I really like about this program is that you can always make an appointment with your professor and they will take their time out and explain every little detail that you do not understand in class. They do not rush you out and will answer any questions you have. I stayed with one professor for over an hour. Everyone is really nice and you will feel at ease.

We have clinical orientation this Thursday from 8-12 at the Meinder's business building. You can always grab one of us after our orientation and we will be happy to answer any of your questions.

Good luck!
