OU 2018 ABSN Program (2017 applicant)


Would love to have a support group for people planning on applying to OU's 2018 ABSN program! October seems so far away and yet I'm stressing over this daily. I can't imagine not getting in and a year of more waiting.

Me: I can only apply to the Tulsa program. The best I can do by mid October is a 3.58 gpa for last 60 and a 4.0 on science, but two (Physiology and Micro) will be in progress. All other prereqs will be completed, but Anatomy will have to be done at a 2 year college. So nervous!

Anybody else?

Hi Jwalk06n!

I am nervous too! I want to know some stats on how many applicants made it in whenever they had a lot of science prerequisites still left to complete. I have 7 hours of sciences left (Anat & Phys Labs & and Micro lecture/lab). I think that is really going to hurt me. I have heard they put a heavy emphasis on how many prerequisites are complete at the time of application. That is mainly because they don't want to admit someone who drops or doesn't pass a class and then can't enter the nursing program. Your GPAs look good, though, I think.

I am in the same boat! I won't be done with physiology until December and I'm taking micro in the spring. I have a 3.9 gpa and 4.0 science. Just wish I knew how much emphasis is put on prereqs being complete! My backup plan is to just do the traditional program if I don't get into the absn this year. Figure it will be less stressful and similar graduation date.

I'm not sure exactly how much emphasis is put on having all prerequisites done by the time of the application. I applied last year and am applying again this year. Last year I was missing 2 science courses (physiology and microbiology) and got waitlisted. I am hoping having everything done this year and getting A's in those courses to bring my GPA up a bit will help tremendously and get me in. The waiting game is tough. We found out November 16th last year, so about 6 weeks to wait. I wish y'all luck! I'm applying to the OKC program

Hi everyone!

I'm so nervous. I am expecting not to get in our waitlisted because I have not completed human anatomy or physiology (in it right now) yet. My GPA's are pretty good. I am just stressed since I don't have those pre-req's finished. If I don't get in I most likely will apply to traditional program.
