    There are more things TCC looks at to determine if you will make it in their nursing program. They weigh science grades more heavily than general requirements like Sociology, etc. This is most likely because nursing builds on what you learn in your science classes. Good luck to each of you and keep us posted.

    MSN to Post Masters NP

    I have a Masters in Nursing Education from Oklahoma University (an online program) and just graduated with a post masters certificate from Graceland University as an FNP. I do not have experience with for-profit schools and acceptance into other programs but I got in the first time I applied at Graceland. Both programs were online and I had a wonderful experience with both. Best of luck!

    Salary

    In the OKlahoma area my experience has been around $30 / hr too for full time with benefits. I know two PAs who get job offers all the time for $150k now that they have some experience. That works out to about $75 an hour full time with benefits and being paid for malpractice, etc. The potential for a six figure salary is much higher with advanced practice. The other thing to consider is job satisfaction.

    Rogers State University

    MK90 have you ever taken the ACT? You do not have to take the pre-reqs at RSU but make sure the courses are equivalent before you enroll. For example, Comp 1 will be the same at each college. However, you can take a chemistry with a lab and without a lab. You probably need the one with the lab. Those are the types of things you have to make sure of. TCC may have a list of equivalent courses (they used to). It is very important to make good grades especially in your science classes in order to get into any nursing school. Get in touch with TCC if that is where you want to get your pre-reqs. They may need an ACT too.

    Review options to have when STARTING NP school

    I found this post a few weeks ago which is well written and very thorough. I am reviewing the Barkley's audio CDs and book over my semester break. See https://allnurses.com/nurse-practitioners-np/passed-ancc-fnp-949017.html

    Tulsa Single Mom needing school advice

    My number 1 advice to any potential nursing student is to stay away from the "for profit" colleges like Platt, Breckenridge, etc. They are very bad news. As far as TCC, OU, Rogers state, etc my opinion is that you will get out of nursing school what you put into it. TCC may be the cheapest option I think. You can PM me for more information if you like. I am a nursing instructor. On scholarships, google it or check with a counselor at TCC. They should be able to help you. Or look around allnurses. Good luck! I am proud of you for going to school as a single mom.

    Computer resources during FNP

    I am going to look into the 2 in 1 by HP. I will receive my iPhone 6 Plus within 2 weeks and I found a review of it as a work tool to consider. See http://www.zdnet.com/iphone-6-plus-half-of-a-very-portable-work-system-7000035265/
