    Tulsa Tech's LPN Program

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone could provide more information about entering the LPN program at Tulsa Tech? I went to go look more into the LPN program myself but was directed to more handouts and such. I understand I need to take the Hesi A2 to be able to be considered for the program itself, what hints and study strategies would you suggest? I've read many reviews on the HESI A2 study assessment guide and there are mixed reviews about, mostly people just say its a waste of time and money. What study guides and other things did you use to prepare for yourself for the HESI A2? Also, what should I focus on? I have taken A&P 1 and 2, Chem, Micro, and some more nursing pre-req's but it's so long and I would like to refresh my memory. Any recommendations, advice, and opinions are more than gratefully :) Thanks.

    Current New Grad Pay in Tulsa area and OKC

    Hi, I was just wondering which ADN program did you go to in Tulsa and which hospital is offering that amount. I am seriously thinking of going for my ADN vs. BSN because I want to start working and make some sort of income. Maybe in the future I will pursue my BSN. Any additional help would greatly appreciated!

    How is the RSU program? I went to TU nursing program...unfortunately I flunked out with a D in Nursing 54, I was only 6 points from passing....However, I am gonna go to TCC also this semester and take a couple of classes and talk to some advisors about what my next big step. Also, TU is really expensive and unfortunately I couldn't afford it. Any help would be great about other nursing programs!

    Fastest Way to become an RN

    Here are some of my questions I need opinions and Former RN's to help with this: 1) Is it easier to become a CNA then apply to Nursing school and try to get in? 2) Is it easier to become an LPN then apply to a Nursing school and try to be accepted? 3) Whats the most efficient and fast way of becoming a RN? I was thinking about going for my CNA in Jan. of 2008 and hopefully transfering to a nursing school in Fall of 2008. Or is it better to go and find a school for a 2 year degree in LPN or RN then becoming an RN? Any info would be deeply appreciated.
  7. I need some advice from Former RN's because I am lost. I wanted to do something in the medical and am aiming towards a RN. I took Psychology I, Comp I, Inter-Med Algebra, and 1 Computer class, at the moment I am taking A & P 1, 1 Art Class, English Comp 2, Sociology 1, and Genetics. Now I am wondering if these are the core courses I need to take: Biology 1 and 2, Chem 1 and 2, maybe Physics, Microbiology? I plan on in the spring 08 to take Bio 1, maybe A & P 2 (hard course dunno if I will have to repeat it), Chem 1, and 2 other electives I might need? I want to hopefully transfer out from my community college with my General Studies degree. Now another question for you former Nurses when applying to Nursing what do they look for specifically on your transcript? I am of Asian ethinicty so will that give me an edge, I'm a B to A- student so my grades are ok, but I know I got to kick my GPA up its around a 2.93 almost 3.0 I plan to make it a 3.5 or so out of 4.0. Another question is that getting your CNA will that be a extra plus on your transcript? Also, is there any colleges or universities without long (2 year waiting lists) waiting lists because I live in CT and around here the waiting list for all community college and universities are 1 to 2 year waiting. Any Information would be greatly thankful.

    Lost & Confused

    Well, I a college student looking to go into the program I am from Enfield the northern part of Connecticut. I've been talking to alot of students about enrolling into a Nursing Program, but most seems to have a long list, so I'm thinking my best bet is to go to college out of state for a Nursing Program.

    Lost & Confused

    Ok, Here's my story and I need people's opinion and certainly RN's opinions. I'm a college student who wants to be a Male RN working in the Operating Room, but I have no direction. Right now I'm just getting all the Pre-Rec classes out of the way at a community college. I did join a Surg Tech Program, but I felt as if I didnt want to be a Surg Tech because the pay seemed it wasnt enough. (did some research and it seemed starting it was around $15/hr). Also, would have taken me longer in school. So my question is what do I do now. Should I find a school that has a LPN program near me and try to enroll into that and then works towards a BSN at a University. It just seems that from what I heard where I live most of the Nursing Programs are filled up easily and very fast. Also I live in CT any suggestions is welcome if its a long response email it to me at tou860@yahoo.com
