    Amador301 - you’re going to OKC and moving here? If you end up on the North/Northwest side of town and are interested in carpooling- I’d love that. Haha.

    Me neither. Which campus is everyone at?

    Are you not even waitlisted? They specifically say you’re not required to have the coursework complete at the time of application. That’s so frustrating. I’m sorry.

    Check your junk box if you haven’t gotten anything... I saw your posts and my empty inbox and freaked out. But I did get an acceptance in my junk mail box. I’m in at OKC! Where are others going?

    You probably could if it’s a renewal. It’s supposed to be a American Heart Association BLS class.

    Me too! I’m trying really hard not to check my email every 5 minutes. She did say that notification would come by email, first from nursingcas and then from OUHSC. My status also just says “verified”. There’s also a way to check status on OUHSC’s website and mine there just says “pending”. I have no idea of the status will change at all or when. Since they only go off of GPA, you’d think it would be a pretty straight forward process. Makes me wonder how many applications they get.

    But yes! Waiting until April only gives people 2 months to make preparations in their lives. Money, kids, family, vacations...there is a lot up in the air.

    I would think so. I have to say the person that said within the next week, asked if I had checked my nursingcas account (nothing has changed). But she seemed to be surprised that we hadn’t heard yet, but mentioned she’d been out of the office too. She seemed to be the most “in the know”, while the others seemed to just be repeating what they’ve been told. That being said, I don’t think I’ll call again until the 15th.

    ok my friends, I made some phone calls today because and I called three different people because I like data. The answers I got were: between mid March and early April, in the next 5-6 days, and the 2nd or 3rd week of March. So there you have it. Sometime this week or maybe not until April.

    Anyone else have kids? I’m starting to stress a little about missing out on 2 summers with my kids with no breaks.

    OU 2019 absn (2018 applicant)

    I minored in chemistry and felt like that in all of my chem classes.

    I’m certainly not trying to downplay haleyreeces’ experience, but someone had asked about people’s experiences in the thread from last year and this was the response that was posted from someone else that’s currently in the program: “In terms of general information about my experience so far, the program is very doable. We're finishing up what seems like the actual science-behind-nursing classes right now: pharmacology and acute and chronic. It's humbling and it takes up much of your time, but if you're willing to work, most everyone will be able to get through the program. The majority of the faculty and staff are there to help you succeed with only a few there to just collect paychecks. The workload isn't too insanely difficult but managing time is of the utmost importance. Your peers are your best friends throughout the program. You spend a lot of time together. Clinicals have been by far the best experience because for me, I came from a business background and just being in the middle of a health care setting has been very fun. After only 7 months, we're halfway there to being nurses which is fun, exciting and terrifying. You'll understand why this time next year.” Everyone has their own perspective and I think it’s important to move forward not expecting things to be perfect but hopefully we can have a good attitude and make it the best experience for each of us! I’m trying to keep this positive outlook, anyway.
