BRG is a diploma program and your pre-reqs must be completed beforehand at a community college or university outside of BRG. Everyone at BRG absolutely LOVES it and the faculty truly cares about each student's success. It has more clinical time than most other programs and truly produces quality nurses. Anyone will tell you they'd rather hire a BRG graduate because they know they are prepared to be on the floor the second they graduate. Most of my teachers were available outside of school and I still keep in contact with them (by personal cellphone) I hear OLOL is not very helpful, the instructors kind of leave the students to "fend" for themselves, and the students are miserable and hate it. They pretty much have to teach themselves the material, and OLOL really only cares about the money. I know several current students/graduates from that program and maybe 10% said "it's alright", that's out of 50 or so students. I hate to even talk this way about another program, and should let you make your own opinion, but I really would hate for you to not know what you are getting yourself into! OLOL used to be "the" nursing school to go to, but that reputation has long passed. People who don't know any better still think it's the only school around. Good luck with your decision!
