    University of Oklahoma HSC NP Program

    Sorry to hear that. I also applied to university of south alabama. I just knew i would not get accepted to OU. I was really upset when i didnt get into the alabama program so i just threw the thoughts of OU out of my head. I was completely in shock when i got their email. My gpa is not the best from my previous degree but my last 60 hours was really good.Just keep trucking, i firmly agree things happen for a reason. Best of luck.

    OCCC Spring 2011 hopefulls!!!!!

    Hello all you future NP1 students! I am currently finished with NP1 as of today (tuesday) and I thought maybe I would share some advice with you guys. I just read some comments from mommaof3 and it seems like they are making some good changes for you guys. Care plans are a pain in the you know what. Any way the biggest thing I want to tell you guys is to start studying for the final on the first day of class. Seriously! Keep up with your readings and after every test make sure you go to the review with you assigned teacher. Nursing school can and WILL get overwhelming. Your best resources will become other NP1 students. While the teachers are "helpful", talking to other students and making some kind of friendship will help you throughout the course. Someone always knows where to get the best review book or is willing to share info to help out. My best advice for test taking is to read EVERY chapter in the Wilkenson's Vol 1 book assigned for the designated test materials. That will become your bible. Truthfully, you can do without the wong's and medical surgical. I didn't use these for testing at all just for care plans if that. Also, buy an actually care plan book. I used Nursing Care plans (Glunaick/Myers?) and it worked awesome. We didn't use kee until the last 2wks of the semester. Hold off on buying the simulation code until the teachers tell you when to buy it. I bought one and didn't even use it this whole semester. If you can, buy all your books used online. They are a fraction of the price of the bookstore. Hmm...anything else I'm forgetting? There is so much I can go on for days. Anyway you can PM for more info, I don't mind helping others out!

    Also, there's an international students edition to the micro book in the library. It's the previous edition which is fine since it's exactly the same as the new edition except for more pictures. Go to the library and try to see if you can get that one till you reorder something else. And for furture notice if there's an international version of any book your trying to find, BUY IT!!!! They are all the same page for page, except for a slightly different cover. Also, any previous regular edition will do. The textbook people don't rewrite a whole book each year, they just add pics and other little stuff. So why spend $100 on a brand new book when the previous edition is 98% the same? Good Luck!

    What teacher are you guys taking for micro (PM me)? The one i had last semester we didn't even use the book, it was all by powerpoint and there was no need for the book.

    Micro is a tough class, especially depending on the teacher. I would also suggest buying the book online, u will save a ton of $$$$$$. We used the lab manuals a lot but if you are trying to sell it back, you can make copies of that days lab and do it like that. I don't think we had to turn in any labs from the book, just handouts.

    ugghhh!!! Don't give up. Last year i heard they took quite a few people from the alt list. I think June 8th is the deadline to tell them if you plan to attend, so i would call a few days after that and ask if they're taking anyone else. You should talk to the guy in enrollment, he's over the acceptance dept for the nursing program.
